Griffons tweak for trip to Loftus
TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: The Griffons have made just two changes for their Currie Cup Round 13 face-off with the Bulls on Friday.
Marquit September is back in the No.12 shirt for the trip to Loftus Versfeld, with Jandre de Beer dropping out of the matchday 23.
The only other change is on the flank, where Thato Mavundla replaces Mitchell Carstens in an otherwise unchanged team, from that which lost 9-35 to the Sharks last week.
The Griffons are last on the standings, with no prospect of moving higher – their only win of the season against the Bulls in Welkom in the early rounds.
