Hoffe Park Stadium in Kimberley hosts a fascinating Currie Cup match on Friday, when the Griquas are at hove to Western Province (WP). The sides are currently placed third and fourth in the table, with just two weekends of competition to go, before the post-season knockout begins, and they appear to be locked in a three way battle, along with the reigning Champions the Lions, for the fourth and final play-off spot. The Griquas had four back to back victories to their credit before last weekend, when they suffered a 20-57 thrashing by the Blue Bulls at Loftus Versfeld.

The Griquas now have just a single point advantage over WP, with the Lions a further point back. A win on Friday for the Griquas would eliminate WP from the 2016 tournament, and appears to be vital to their chances of a top four finish, given that they face the unbeaten table toppers the Cheetahs in their final fixture. With a home game against the lowly Cavaliers to finish the regular season, a win for WP would put them in the box seat, Although with the Lions at home to the winless Kings on Saturday, the pressure will be enormous whoever might come out on top in Kimberley.
