DHL WP U21 unchanged for table-topper

PUBLISHED: September 7, 2023

The DHL Western Province U21 side that will face Lions U21 in a table-topping encounter at City Park on Saturday is unchanged from the combination that won in Pretoria last week.

The only two teams to have won both games so far this season will square off at 13h00 on Saturday at City Park.

With wins against the Hollywoodbets Sharks U21 and Vodacom Bulls U21 already under their belts, the home side will be looking to build further on what has been an encouraging start to the campaign.

Head Coach Jono van der Walt said that his team will have to be at their best to keep their winning momentum going, in what is their last home game before the play-offs.

“We saw some improvements last week from our opening game and hopefully we can keep the upward trajectory going on Saturday.

“We are up against a team who have picked up two good wins themselves and will be full of confidence, so we will need to be sharp and make the most of home conditions,” he said.

DHL WP U21: 15 Luke Burger, 14 Duran Koevort, 13 Joshua Boulle, 12 Damian Markus, 11 Jared Africa, 10 Sacha Feinberg-Mngomezulu (captain), 9 Imad Khan, 8 Armand Maritz, 7 Louw Nel, 6 Paul de Villiers, 5 Connor Evans, 4 Reynhardt Crous, 3 Corne Weilbach, 2 Lukhanyo Vokozela, 1 Vernon Matongo.
Replacements: 16 Keagan Blanckenberg, 17 Lamla Nunu, 18 Zachary Porthen, 19 Edrich Viljoen, 20 Enos Ndiao, 21 Eric Basson, 22 Asad Moos, 23 Kian Davis.
