Province, as the defending champions, are joint top with the Bulls and the Cheetahs on six points after their nail-biting 15-14 win at Newlands over the Cheetahs last weekend.
Province coach Allister Coetzee, above, said centre Pat Howard has a tight hamstring, while flyhalf Gary van Aswegen took a knock to the shoulder.
“We felt it was best to take Pat off, the guys have been training in the wet these past two weeks so he felt his hamstring a bit and we didn’t want to risk him,” said Coetzee. “Gary took a slight knock to the shoulder but he, too, should be fine.”
The return of centre Juan de Jongh from the Bok set-up and flyhalf Demetri Catrakilis from injury could therefore be very timely.
While Province started their campaign with a draw at home to the Bulls, before retaining their unbeaten record with the narrow Cheetahs result, Griquas will enjoy their first game at home.
