Summary

Griquas have won both matches against Pumas this season. Their home fixture was a comfortable 20-point win, and while this should be a lot tighter, the hosts should have too much quality for the Pumas.

Griquas vs Pumas Preview


Griquas are at home which makes them clear favourites. They have already beaten the Pumas comfortably at home and more recently by a point away.

Neither side has much final experience. This is the first appearance for the Pumas in the Currie Cup final while Griquas have not ventured this far in the last three decades. My best bet is for Griquas to lift the trophy.

  • Griquas have won their last 2 matches against the Pumas.
  • Griquas have won their last 4 matches.
  • Pumas have lost 3 of their last 5 matches.

Head to Head


Pumas and Griquas have historically been very well matched. Over the last three matches, Griquas have won twice with one draw.

At the end of last season the sides drew 13-all. Griquas beat the Pumas 41-20 at home in round two of this seasons Currie Cup. Their last meeting took place on 10 June 2022 in Nelspruit, a match Griquas won 45-44.

Griquas Form


Griquas finished their Currie Cup regular season in third place with seven wins from their 12 matches. That meant an away trip to the Bulls for the semi-final last week.

The Kimberley outfit won their final three matches of the regular season to ensure themselves of a third place finish. They beat the Cheetahs 46-18 before seeing off Western Province 43-41. A 45-44 win at the Pumas in a crucial fixture saw them take third.

Last week Griquas upset the odds with a superb second half display. They were down at the break but came back to beat the Bulls 30-19 at Loftus, a result not many would have foreseen.

Griquas Team News


Griquas have been consistent this season in selection. They will show faith in the players that got them to this point.

Pumas Form


Pumas just made it to the semi-final with a fourth placed finish. They won five of their 12 fixtures but came into the knockout phase in good form.

A massive 29-28 win at the Cheetahs in their second to last match was the crucial win, the same place they have to travel to for the semi-final. They lost their final round robin match 45-44 to their opponents in the final but crucially got two bonus points.

Last week in the semi-final the Cheetahs looked to be cruising to the final. However the Pumas fought back in the final five minutes to score two converted tries to clinch the match 38-35.

Pumas Team News


There have been no reported injuries. The Pumas are expected to remain unchanged from their semi-final success.
