Pumas side to play Border Bulldogs




Head Coach of the Steval Pumas, MJ Mentz announced his 22 man squad for the fourth 2016 Currie Cup Qualifier match of the season this Saturday afternoon in East London.


“The Bulldogs will certainly be on a high after their three consecutive wins and we know they are a difficult team to beat on their home ground. We tried to keep continuity in the team selection after our win last week, and hopefully we can build on our winning momentum. It’s going to be a tough encounter, but we are definitely going to East London for the win,” Coach MJ Mentz said.


Mentz explained that Marné Coetzee has a slight ear infection, and should he not be cleared later the week, De-Jay Terblanché would then move to the starting 15, with Jacques Kotzé on the bench. Kotzé will then make his debut for the Steval Pumas. Hennie Skorbinski was withdrawn late last week with his hand injury, but is back in action for the East London clash.
