Griquas coach Pote Human has made four changes to his starting XV for Saturday's Currie Cup clash with the Blue Bulls in Kimberley.

In the back-line, JP Nel returns to the run-on side in place of Jean Stemmet, who is amongst the replacements, while Richard Lawson and
Marnus Hugo come in for Nico Scheepers and Jacques Coetzee on the right wing and at scrum-half respectively. Scheepers is ruled out with a thigh injury while Coetzee has also been named on the bench.

Up front, young front-rower Ewald van der Westhuizen replaces the injured Nick Schonert at tighthead prop in the only other change to the side that lost 19-13 to Western Province in Cape Town last weekend.

Human has also surprised by including another promising prop, Brendon Pitzer on the bench.
