Tuks 1 will surely benefit from their Club Championships warm up match against the Steinhoff Tuks Barbarians tonight at the TuksRugby Stadium.


“It will be our first match since the Carlton Cup Final on 14 August and very necessary if we want to stay on top of our game. We have a tough draw as we play UJ in our first match at the Club Champs (Saturday, 18 September),” says Tuks 1 coach Nollis Marais.

Tuks will not be fielding their best side as many first choice players are either injured of doing duty for the respective Blue Bulls teams over the weekend.

“The match against the potent Barbarians will be a very good test for those players who have not seen action for a while. The result will obviously be of concern for us, but more important is how we play,” added Marais.

The teams are (kick-off at 18:30):

Tuks 1: 1 Corne Fourie, 2 Chris Crous, 3 Hein Viljoen, 4 Joe Walters, 5 Berend Botha; 6 Mattheuse du Plooy, 7 Jacques Verwey, 8 Marius Weber (c), 9 Hendrik Blignaut, 10 Renier Wiessener, 11 Pieter Peens, 12 Gerrit Smith, 13 Gerhard van der Merwe, 14 Dirk Dippenaar, 15 Shaun Davids. REPLACEMENTS: 16 Henri Bantjes, 17 Gert Andries van der Merwe, 18 Peet Botma, 19 Louis van Biljon, 20 Poerie van Rooyen, 21 Stanley Twiname, 22 Etienne Greeff, 23 Tertius Harmse, 24 Johan Booysen.

Steinhoff Tuks Barbarians: 1 Porros Muller (Boekenhout), 2 Raymond van Niekerk (Olienhout), 3 Basil Short (Taaibos), 4 Dirk Jacobs (Mopanie), 5 Meiring de Clerq (Sonop), 6 Schabort Meyer (Onderstepoort), 7 Jaco Calitz (Sonop), 8 Rudolf Smith (Maroela), 9 Jan Spruit Steenkamp (Maroela), 10 Piet-Piet Swart (Onderstepoort), 11 Drikus van der Walt (Boekenhout), 12 Selwyn Schutze (Sonop), 13 Phillip Viviers (Onderstepoort), 14 Rick Lee (Mopanie), 15 Adriaan Bornman (Maroela).
