Back in action – Marcel Brache
UCT have gotten over their error ridden display an the Greenpoint Track last weekend and have worked hard all week to lay down a challenge to the high flying False Bay team. There have been a number of changes to the team with WP young stars Martin Muller and Tim Whitehead available for the match and some injury returns.
The experienced Jody Burch and Dylan Rogers are both in the WP Amateurs team this weekend, but the squad has been bolstered by the return of Muller and Whitehead, both released from the Currie Cup squad for the match.
Marcel Brache who has played every single minute of every game for the Ikeys this season is back from injury.
So Doug Mallet, who has missed the first half of the league. Hooker Mark Goosen also returns from the sick list. Ikeys Varsity Cup star Sam Peter takes over at no8 from Burch.
The other change is Grant Kemp’s move to tighthead in place of Rogers – he will team up with Matt Page and Ash Wells against the experienced Bay front row.
Much to look forward to at the False Bay grounds this Saturday.
