WP name team for The Sanlam Challenge
The DHL Western Province squad landed in London on Friday morning and will be captained by South African international centre Juan de Jongh for The Sanlam Challenge at Allianz Park on Sunday, kick off is 13h00.
The Currie Cup champions have named their team ahead of the game and WP coach Allister Coetzee has reminded his players of the importance of the North vs South clash.
“It is an important game for us because the message to the players is that we will be representing the Currie Cup champions of South Africa,” said Coetzee.
“Saracens were last season's European Cup and Premiership runners-up so we're know we'll be up against a team that is well structured.
“Their match-day squad includes numerous players that have done national team duty. We will play the way we have been playing and the intention is to lift our game a notch or two.”
