SuperSport Rugby Challenge – Toyota Free State XV vs Tafel Lager Griquas

Toyota Free State XV will be taking on the Tafel Lager Griquas on Sunday in a SuperSport Rugby Challenge match in Rustenburg.  The match forms part of a SuperSport Rugby Challenge Rugby Festival and is hosted by the Impala Rugby Club with a live broadcast on SuperSport 1.

The two unbeaten teams in the Central Section, Tafel Lager Griquas and the Toyota Free State XV, will meet in a crunch game that will determine the top of the log spot.

In the next clash of this highly entertaining tournament, the Leopards will be spurred on by their North West supporters, as they desperately look for a first win against the Cell C Sharks XV, who will be looking for a second win in as many weeks.
The Impala Rugby Club will see the reunion of some sorts for the Kruger brothers, Tertius and De Wet. At last year’s festival here in the Platinum belt, both represented Tafel Lager Griquas in their 54-17 victory over the Leopards. But this time, they will face each other, as Tertius has since moved back to Bloemfontein, where made his provincial debut, and will play for the Toyota Free State XV on Sunday.

Coach Daan Human has announced his team for the encounter:
