Griquas clash with the Lions in the Currie Cup at Tafel Lager Park in Kimberley on Saturday. Neither side made a meaningful impact on the recently-completed Super Rugby Unlocked, so this match in Kimberley is going to be an intriguing affair.

Griquas Form


The Griquas may not have won a single Super Rugby Unlocked match, but they put in some impressive showings along the way. Sadly for them, they start the 2020 Currie Cup campaign in last place with just three points - as all points gained in Super Rugby Unlocked are carried over into the Currie Cup.

The Griquas ran the Sharks, Bulls, and Pumas close, losing by one, seven, and six points respectively. They are notoriously difficult to beat in Kimberley, so they will fancy giving the Lions a tough fixture.

Griquas Team News


Griquas have yet to name their side for this encounter but they have no reported injuries. 

Lions Form


The Lions managed just one win in Super Rugby Unlocked, but that was down in part to two of their matches being cancelled due to COVID-19 infections.

Their solitary victory came in Johannesburg against the Griquas, with the Lions playing some beautiful running rugby in a 61-31 victory.

In their three defeats - to the Bulls, Sharks, and Stormers, the Lions finished within seven points. They carry 12 points over into the Currie Cup, meaning their hopes of lifting the trophy are far from over, as they sit just 11 points behind leaders the Bulls.

Lions Team News


Springboks Jaco Kriel (flank), Willem Alberts (lock), and Ruan Dreyer (prop) all start for the Lions.

Prop Carlu Sadie misses the match due to personal reasons.

Griquas vs Lions Odds

Griquas vs Lions Match Up


The Griquas may not have won a match in 2020, but their ability to give sides a tough match in Kimberley will worry the Lions. Come the 80th minute, the Lions should hold a lead, but it will not be as one-sided as their recent match in Johannesburg. 

The heat in Kimberley at this time of the year will certainly have an effect on this match.
