Head to Head


Western Province have won 18 of their last 22 matches against Griquas. There was one draw and three defeats for the Cape Town side. 

Western Province Form


Western Province are top of the Currie Cup table after three rounds of action. They have won two of their three matches.

The Cape Town-based outfit won their opening encounter 48-24 at the Bulls before losing 38-32 to the Lions on the road. Province were comfortably outplayed by the Lions but took full advantage of facing 13 men in the final 10 minutes to score three tries.

Last week Western Province just got over the line in a 32-31 home win over the Sharks. It was a superb game of rugby but superior goal kicking got Province the win.

Western Province Injuries & Team News


Western Province will not have their international players available due to Springbok duty. They have however played without them in the opening three matches so it shouldn’t cause a problem, especially against a side who have no international players.

Griquas Form


Griquas are currently placed fifth on the Currie Cup table with one win from their opening three matches. It is already an improvement on last season where they failed to win a game.

They lost 30-16 at home to the Sharks in round one but rebounded to beat the Cheetahs 31-10 in the following match. Griquas dominated all the big facets of the game but they did play against a Cheetahs side missing 13 first choice players.

Last week the Kimberley-based outfit came up just short against the high-flying Pumas. After being well behind by half time, Griquas fought back in the second half to lead at one point, but couldn't hold on as they lost 26-22 in Nelspruit.

Griquas Injuries & Team News


Griquas have no reported injuries ahead of this clash so they should be close to full strength.
