Griquas head coach Hawies Fourie has made three changes to his XV for their clash with Currie Cup leaders Western Province in Cape Town on Saturday.

After beating the Pumas at home for their second consecutive win, Fourie would have preferred to keep the same line-up but injuries have struck.

Changes see Maks van Dyk in at prop for Ewald van der Westhuizen while lock Hugo Kloppers earns his first start, with regular Jaco Nepgen not available after his father passed away this week.

Nepgen's absence has opened the door for Burger Schoeman to come into the starting line-up while flank Carel Greeff has been moved to the bench.

Griquas: 15 Gouws Prinsloo, 14 Ederies Arendse, 13 Jonathan Francke, 12 Doppies la Grange, 11 PJ Vermeulen, 10 Francois Brummer (capt), 9 Tian Meyer, 8 Burger Schoeman, 7 Ruaan Lerm, 6 Marnus Schoeman, 5 Hugo Kloppers, 4 Hilton Lobberts, 3 Maks van Dyk, 2 Martin Bezuidenhout, 1 Steph Roberts.
Replacements: 16 Ryno Barnes, 17 Janro van Niekerk, 18 Jonathan Adendorf, 19 Carel Greeff, 20 Abrie Griesel, 21 Dean Grant, 22 Danie Dames.

Date: Saturday, September 20
Kick-off: 15:00 local (14:00 BST, 13:00 GMT)
Venue: Newlands, Cape Town
Referee: Lesego Legoete
Assistant Referees: Marius van der Westhuizen, Marc van Zyl
TMO: Shaun Veldsman
