Griquas will not go down without a fight

Griquas will be wanting to turn the tables on the Xerox Golden Lions after their first match at Emirates Park last month even though they have been forced to make two late changes to their team. Shaun McDonald replaces Jonathan Adendorf while newbie, Kevin Kaba takes McDonald’s place on the bench.

After going down 48-43 in that match, Tafel Lager Griquas will be going all out to beat this formidable team tomorrow night. Kick off is at 7.15 pm.
“The players are hungry for success after too many close calls,” Griquas assistant coach Dave Hesketh said.
