Cheslin Kolbe to debut on the wing for Western Province (team sheet)

Western Province have named a strong team for the first match of their title defense. Most of the starting 15 have extensive Super Rugby experience, which should see them dominate a youthful Blue Bulls side at home this weekend. The weather in Cape Town could be a mitigating factor as it seems likely to rain, but this should suit the vastly more experienced Province pack.

On debut:

  • Cheslin Kolbe
  • Pat Howard
  • Gerbrandt Grobler

To debut from the bench:

  •  Alistair Vermaak
  • Pat Cilliers
  • Michael Rhodes

Western Province – 15 Gio Aplon, 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 Pat Howard, 12 Damian de Allende, 11 Cheslin Kolbe, 10 Gary van Aswegen, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Nizaam Carr, 7 Rynhardt Elstadt, 6 Deon Fourie (c), 5 De Kock Steenkamp, 4 Gerbrandt Grobler, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Scarra Ntubeni, 1 Steven Kitshoff.
Subs: 16 Alistair Vermaak, 17 Pat Cilliers, 18 Michael Rhodes, 19 Ruan Kitshoff, 20 Nic Groom, 21 Kurt Coleman, 22 Berton Klaasen.
