Pukke (University of the Northe West) have made no changes to the team that travels to Cape Town to challenge the Ikeys for a spot in the 2009 final. Coach Rudy Joubert goes with the “never change a winning team” mantra and sticks with the starting side that beat UCT 17:13 in Potch last week.
One of the danger men for Puk was no 8 and captain Willem de Wal, but the Tigers will have learnt their lesson and he will be a marked man come Monday. The Pukke will try dominate the scrums again, but UCT did some good work during the week with scrum coach Paul Day and will be ready to counter the assault from the Potch heavies.
The only change for the visitors is Marcel du Toit coming in for Dewan Eckard on the bench.
FNB Pukke: 15 Willem Barnard, 14 Andrew Van Wyk, 13 Wenstley Scott, 12 Wouter Watermeyer, 11 Lolo Waka, 10 Cecil Dumond, 9 Andries Mahoney, 8 Willem van der Wal (captain), 7 Savvas Nel, 6 Jaco Lötter, 5 Markus Fourie, 4 Grant le Roux, 3 Stephan Bezuidenhout, 2 Stoffel Duvenage, 1 BG Uys.
