Pumas vs Griquas

On the face of it this sounds like a game that could be skipped to in order to gain some brownie points for Saturday but on further inspection this one my contain a fair amount of entertainment value.

The Pumas always tend to perform at the Mbombela stadium and have already claimed the scalp of a visiting Cheetahs side in the opening round of this years Currie Cup, the Griquas have not yet been able to register a win yet but will feel that they are due a positive result having come fairly close in both their fixtures so far. Expect both teams to play with positivity and theirs a fair chance of a try fest

    Maybe an interview or post on Jimmy Stonehouse coach of Pumas is in order.
    I want to find out more about this guy.
    He sounds like a pirate. I think I might make him my pick a successor to HM after WC victory.
    As of right now though its still wide open.
