The Peacock Blues have been in the lead for the majority of the tournament this season, and have already booked a spot in the semi-finals for the first time since 1998.
A win over will be enough to the side from the Northern Cape to secure a home semi-final as they are two points clear of the second-placed Toyota Free State Cheetahs and the third-placed Golden Lions.
A win for the Lions could mean that the Free State finishes at the top of the standings, and they could move into second, provided it is a bonus-point victory.
The Lions will field the Springbok winger, Jamba Ulengo, this week after he recently signed a two-year contract with the team.
Ulengo, who will be playing off the bench, spent the last year or so at the Free State where he wasn’t able to secure a contract. While playing for the Free State he finished at the leading try-scorer in the 2019 SuperSport Rugby Challenge.
Saturday’s match between the Griquas and Lions in Kimberley kicks off at 15:00.
