Other Unions/Teams: Earl Rose to debut for Lions

New signings Earl Rose (at fullback) and Dave von Hoesslin will debut for the Cats when they play the Bulls in two warm-up games at Ellispark on Saturday, whilst old stalwart Jannes Labuschagne returns to action. The two Lion teams reveals plenty of depth.

The Cats play the Bulls in two warm-up games, at 14:30 and 16:00. Still absent are the Springboks André Pretorius, Ricky Januarie and Ashwin Willemse.

Ludeke has taken the opportunity to mix-and-match some of his combinations, for instance pairing Springboks Wayne Julies and Grant Esterhuizen in the centre in one team and fellow Boks Jaque Fourie and Jorrie Muller in the other.

The teams named by Ludeke on Wednesday are:

Red: Conrad Jantjes, Wylie Human, Grant Esterhuizen, Wayne Julies, Dewey Swartbooi, Tiaan Snyman, Jano Vermaak, Schalk van der Merwe, Wikus van Heerden, Cobus Grobbelaar, Gordon Gilfillan, Jannes Labuschagne, Daniel Muller, James van der Walt, Heinke van der Merwe.

White: Earl Rose, John Daniels, Jaque Fourie, Jorrie Muller, Oginga Siwundla, Arno Coetzee, Dave von Hoesslin, Pietie Ferreira, Gerhard Vosloo, Roland Bernard, Willem Stoltz, Trevor Hall, Bertus Smit, Lukas van Biljon, Lawrence Sephaka.

Reserves: Edrick van Tonder, Quintin van Tonder, Nel Fourie, John Cooper, Jean Deysel, KleinJan Tromp, Etienne Reynecke, Marius Hurter.

Injured or in rehab: Ashwin Willemse, André Pretorius, Ricky Januarie, Nicholas Eyre, Russell Winter, Ernst Joubert, Pietman van Niekerk, Heinrich Kok, Doppies la Grange.

Good to see Labuschagne back again. Hope he's fully recovered and fighting fit.

Well, not 'fighting' fit....

Interesting to see Marius Hurter still going. I thought his original plan was to return to SA for one final swansong season?

I still wish the Cheetahs had persuaded Naka to just do this last S14.
No luck, though I read that he will be the team manager with input into the line-out coaching.
Less stressful on them old legs :-)
Earl Rose on FB is a waste.

Rather leave him in the Vodacom Cup then and let him sharpen his teeth on inside centre.

So with Jorrie and Jacque in one team, who gets to take the 12 and who 13?

Isn't there one of you who thought Jacque would make a reasonably decent 12?

Don't know if we'll learn anything from this. Maybe I'll go round to Ellis on Saturday to have a decko?
