Saturday’s final round clash starts at 16h30 at the Toyota Stadium in the Free State capital and will be televised live on SuperSport Rugby and Grandstand channels.
The only tweak to Tafel Lager Griquas' starting side, that came so close to a victory last week against the Cell C Sharks, is at No 8 where Carl Els comes in for Johan Momsen.
The Peacock Blue jerseys were extremely unfortunate to go down to the Cell C Sharks, who managed a dramatic late fightback to win this thrilling encounter in Kimberley by 34-33.
That heart-breaking loss left them still in search of their first campaign success, although they ran several teams – especially the Cell C Sharks and DHL Stormers – very close in their home matches.
Tinus de Beer had a good match last weekend and the former Junior Springbok has again been entrusted with the flyhalf duties in a match that will no doubt deliver some thrills as both sides will be out to impress in their last outings before the focus shifts to the Carling Currie Cup.
There is also one change on the extended replacements bench, with André Swarts coming in for utility back Ashlon Davids.
The men from Bloemfontein, on the other hand, will be equally determined to end the competition on a high note. They started the campaign impressively with two wins but then hit some head winds with consecutive losses to the Cell C Sharks in Durban and the DHL Stormers in Cape Town.
