Darrien Landsberg (lock) was not considered because of injury and Stonehouse will wait until the their captain’s run to finalise his starting combination.
Saturday’s last warm-up fixture presents the Mpumalanga-based side with another opportunity to continue their recent dominance over their Kimberley rivals, following their wins in Vodacom Super Rugby Unlocked and Carling Currie Cup.
Both sides will have an extra spring in their step coming off morale-boosting wins in the previous round of preparation matches.
Tafel Lager Griquas finally got a win under the belt as they proved too strong for the struggling Eastern Province in their encounter in Port Elizabeth, while the Lowvelders bagged a convincing win over the Toyota Cheetahs in the Mbombela Stadium.
Based on their recent performances, the New Nation Pumas can be considered as the slight favourites, however, the men from the Northern Cape are tough nuts to crack in Kimberley and this match is bound to be another close fought battle between the two rivals.
Cwengile Jadezweni takes the whistle in this 15h00 kick-off and the match will be televised live on the SuperSport Rugby channel.
