The Tafel Lager Griquas will be looking to at the top of the Currie Cup standings when they face the Golden Lions in Kimberly on Saturday.


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.
