DHL Western Province Set To Cruise To An Easy Win In Gqeberha


DHL Western Province u/20 travels to Gqeberha to face Eastern Province u/20 and should cruise to a relaxed win.

The only thing DHL Western Province u/20 will be looking for is a bonus-point win to regain their place at the top of the 2022 SARU u/20 Cup log. The Vodacom Bulls u/20 claimed the top spot after a great win yesterday against the Lions u/20.

The Eastern Province u/20 coaching staff just made one change to their starting line-up. Flanker D Rudman comes back into the starting lineup replacing H Bronkhorst.

There are seven changes to the DHL Western Province u/20 team.

There are three changes in the forward pack and four in the backline.

Hooker Nande Moses, lock Imad Phillips and flank Aidan Christians all come into the starting team up front.

In the backline scrumhalf Jacques Theron, centres Philasande Ngcobo and Melbirt Van der Spuy and wing Botshelo Kubyadi all get an opportunity to show what they can do.

Levy said that the focus for his team is putting together a solid performance away from home, to back-up their win against Toyota Cheetahs U20 at home last week.

“We want to produce an accurate performance away from home and that will take focus from every player.
“We have given a few players an opportunity to try and build some depth and it will be interesting to see how some of the new combinations go,” he said.
