Welcome to DHL Newlands. The weather is overcast but rain looks unlikely.
Golden Lions coach Johan Ackermann has made several changes to his run-on side. In the back-line, Michael Bondesio has recovered from injury and will start at scrum-half in place of Ross Cronje who starts on the bench. At fly-half, Marnitz Boshoff will take the place of the injured Elton Jantjies, while Lionel Cronje and Lionel Mapoe will pair up in the midfield. Chrysander Botha also returns from injury and will start at wing, with Andries Coetzee shifting to full-back. Among the forwards, Willie Britz has been promoted from the bench and into the starting line-up. Meanwhile, Hugo Kloppers and Kobus de Kock are both new additions on the bench.
Western Province head coach Allister Coetzee has made four changes to his team for this clash. Half-backs Louis Schreuder and Demetri Catrakilis will start in the backline, whilst fit-again flanker Rynhardt Elstadt returns at seven, which sees Michael Rhodes shift back into the second-row. Schreuder and Catrakilis come in for Nic Groom and Kurt Coleman, respectively, with Rhodes replacing youngster Tazz Fuzani in the four jersey. Scrum-half Groom and fly-half Coleman will warm the bench this week, but lock Fuzani drops out altogether with loose forwards Schalk Burger and Josh Katzen continuing amongst the replacements.
Good day and welcome to Newlands in Cape Town for our live coverage of this Currie Cup encounter between our hosts, Western Province, and the Golden Lions. We'll return soon with team news.

I watched Bath v Saracens last Friday and was very impressed with George Ford and how well he controlled that game for Bath. I would love to see him play a big role in the autumn internationals and I hope Stuart Lancaster starts him for at least two of the four Tests.
