Stander to 10 as Willemse moves to 12


Notshe and Jano Vermaak will make a welcome return to Western Province side when they face the Sharks in the Currie Cup final this weekend.

For Province it will hopefully be the last game of a perfect season when the final whistle blows on Saturday.

The other change sees Josh Stander coming in at flyhalf and Damien Willemse moving to inside centre.

Province know that they will have to be a 110% better than what they showed against the Blue Bulls and need to make sure they dominated the small battles against the Sharks.

“There has been a lot of hard work to get to this point, with many different people making important contributions, Dobson said to the media.

“There is nothing like a Currie Cup final at Newlands, so it is something we would like to embrace and make the most of in front of the faithful,”
