Combrinck returns to action


Ruan Combrincks’ return to rugby will start at Alberton Rugby Club on Saturday when he runs out for the Xerox Golden Lions that will host the Namibia Welwitschias in the SuperSport Rugby Challenge.


Combrinck has been on the road to recovery since a shoulder injury side-lined him in a match for the Springboks against Argentina last year.


Injuries to some key players have necessitated  some major changes to Lions side which will see Bobby de Wee take over the role of captain in the absence of Jano Venter, who is injured. Also on the injury list are Fabian Booysen, Marvin Orie, Gerrie Labuschagne, Sti Sithole and Barend Smit.


“We have confidence in the players coming into the match-day squad, regardless of age.  We believe they can step-up. This is their opportunity to perform and fight for a place in the side,” said coach Bafana Nhleko.


Madosh Tambwe, unable to join the SA Under 20 side due to citizenship issues, will run out at left-wing.


Kick-off is at 15:00. This is followed  by Alberton vs Harlequins at 17:15.


Entry is free and parking is R20.
