Western Province coach Jerome Paarwater has made one change to his starting XV for Wednesday's Currie Cup clash with the Pumas in Cape Town.

The change comes at scrumhalf where Godlen Masimla is picked ahead of Thomas Bursey, who drops to the bench.

There is movement among the replacements with props Ali Vermaak and Sazi Sandi set to make an impact in the second half, along with young loose forward Jarrod Taylor.

"We have got some continuity in the team and hopefully we will see some good cohesion in the combinations as we play in front of our crowd again on Wednesday," said Paarwater.

The match gets underway at 15:00.
