Although losing in Cape Town last week to the 2014 Currie Cup table leaders, Western Province, was no great surprise to the Griquas, it still came as a huge disappointment, as the 36-12 reverse has all but ended their chances of a top four finish, and a place in the semi-finals.

They may just cling to the hope that if they can unseat the high flying Golden Lions at Hoffe Park Stadium in Kimberley on Saturday, their last two fixtures are eminently winnable, coming against rock bottom Eastern Province Kings, and the lowly Blue Bulls. Even so, three wins from three, might not be enough for the Griquas to squeeze into the league's top four positions.

However, the home side being in the last chance saloon, might just make the Golden Lions trip more difficult than they anticipated. A win on Saturday will all but assure the visitors of a semi-final place. They are however, keen to hunt down table leaders Western Province who have a four point advantage at this stage, as they seek to secure home advantage through the knockout stages. The Lions head coach Johan Ackermann promotes prop Jacques van Rooyen and flank Warwick Tecklenburg from the bench, and starts Ross Cronje at  scrumhalf and Howard Mnisi at inside centre.
