Western Province vs Griquas Predictions

We are backing Western Province to win comfortably at Newlands.

Head to Head


Western Province lead Griquas 15-2 with 1 draw in their last 18 encounters. Their last match saw Western Province win 39-6 in the Super Rugby Unlocked.

Western Province Form


Western Province have won one and lost two of their opening three Currie Cup matches. They are however still well placed to make the playoffs. 

Province lost 22-20 to the Bulls at Newlands in their opening fixture and followed it up with another 22-19 loss to the Lions in Johannesburg.

Their last fixture was a home match against the Pumas where they were heavily fancied and won 28-14. 

Western Province were far from their best with the Pumas in it until the very end. A last gasp try by Western Province got them the bonus point they required.

Western Province Injuries & Team News


Western Province welcome back Sergeal Petersen, Juarno Augustus and Frans Malherbe to the squad after injury. 

Centre Dan du Plessis and scrumhalf Herschel Jantjies are expected to make their return to the starting line-up after being on the bench last week. 

Key players in Seabelo Senatla and Scarra Ntubeni are still out injured.

Griquas Form


Griquas have lost both of their opening Currie Cup fixtures in 2020.

They lost their first match 20-17 to the Lions at home. Griquas were unfortunate as the match was suspended after 47 minutes, two minutes after the Lions took the lead.

The Griquas then lost 22-17 at the Pumas in their last match. This would have been a game they would have expected to win but they again failed to produce a decent performance.

It was a lacklustre performance by Griquas who on paper are the better side. The score could easily have been far bigger but a late consolation try saved the Pumas' blushes.

Griquas Injuries & Team News


Griquas had a bye last week after their match against the Bulls was cancelled. They are expected to field a full-strength team.
