CAPE TOWN – Western Province have welcomed a timely boost as players returned before their Currie Cup meeting with the Golden Lions on Saturday.
WP attack coach Dawie Snyman yesterday confirmed that Dillyn Leyds - who was released from the Springbok squad following the game against Australia - and Sergeal Petersen both trained with the squad yesterday.
Following their 32-27 loss to the Sharks at Kings Park at the weekend, Province will have to bounce back at Newlands if they want to keep their hopes of hosting a home semi-final alive.
Snyman said that Springbok captain Siya Kolisi was progressing well, but couldn’t confirm whether the loose forward would feature this weekend or not.
WP have a bye after the fixture against the Lions.
