Clinton Swart - Nicolette Taljaard
The Tafel Lager Griquas have named their side to host the Blue Bulls on Saturday in the opening round of the Currie Cup.

The Peacock Blues welcome back the Toyota Cheetahs Super Rugby player, Clinton Swart, and the Southern Kings player, Mzwanele Zito.

Swart has shown tremendous growth during the Super Rugby, while Zito returns from a side which proved all their critics wrong and impressed.

Swart's return is very timely and he will add a lot punch to the Griquas backline, and of course he possesses a deadly boot as well.

Upfront RJ Liebenberg also returns and will play at flank, and he will also be the team’s vice-captain.

The fullback, AJ Coertzen, retains the team’s captaincy.

The Bulls are expected to name a very strong side after failing to reach the play-offs in the Super Rugby.

The Griquas will, however, still have their tails up following a brilliant SuperSport Rugby Challenge campaign, in which they finished as the runners up.

Saturday evening’s clash at Tafel Lager Park in Kimberley kicks off at 19:30.

Griquas - 15 AJ Coertzen (captain), 14 Ederies Arendse, 13 Tertius Kruger, 12 Clinton Swart, 11 Koch Marx, 10 Andre Swarts, 9 Christiaan Meyer, 8 Jonathan JV Rensburg, 7 Sias Koen, 6 RJ Liebenberg, 5 FP Pelser, 4 Mzwanele Zito, 3 Ewald van der Westhuizen, 2 AJ Le Roux, 1 Liam Hendricks.

Replacements - 16 Marius Fourie, 17 Nicolaas Oosthuizen, 18 Jonathan Adendorf, 19 Wendal Wehr, 20 Rudi Van Rooyen, 21 George Whitehead, 22 Enver Brandt.
