Western Province Currie Cup coach Allister Coetzee has brought Louis Schreuder back at scrumhalf for Western Province for their clash this weekend against the Sharks at Newlands.

Schreuder’s return is the only change to the current Currie Cup champions line up for the top of the table clash.

Regular vice-captain Schreuder replaces Nic Groom in the No.9 shirt, with the latter dropping to the bench after last week’s thrilling 31-31 draw against the Golden Lions in Johannesburg.

Schreuder will partner Kurt Coleman at halfback, with fit-again flyhalf Gary van Aswegen replacing WP Under-21 star Tim Swiel on the bench in the only other change to the Province matchday squad.

Whilst Province are the only unbeaten team in the 2013 Currie Cup competition, the Sharks currently top the log with 14 points from four matches, followed by the FS Cheetahs and WP on 12 points apiece.

“It’s going to be another tough game (for us),” WP coach Allister Coetzee said on the WP Rugby site.

“Although it’s a home game for us the Sharks will play with a lot of confidence. We certainly have our work cut out for us (this weekend).”
