CAPE TOWN - Western Province coach Allister Coetzee is likely to name a Springbok-laden team for the final Currie Cup round robin game this weekend.

Jean de Villiers, Juan de Jongh and Bryan Habana are some of the returning Boks who will try and help Province beat the Cheetahs on Saturday.

They need a win if they want to qualify for the semi-finals.

Coetzee says, "You have to select your best possible side for the weekend and I think it's completely different to 2011. This is a crunch game for us this weekend. Last year we had to play the Pumas and we were already through to the next round. This time around, it's a completely different scenario."

He added all of the Boks are eager to play.

"Not one of them indicated some form of tiredness or unwillingness to play. We're playing at Newlands and they must be involved."

The Province is third on the log, while the Cheetahs are second from bottom.

Kickoff is 5:05pm.
