DHL Western Province head coach John Dobson said that his team is intent on delivering an accurate performance in Bloemfontein.

"The continuity in selection this week will hopefully help us to build some momentum and play with some fluency," said Dobson.

"We know that it will take an 80-minute performance in Bloemfontein this weekend if we are to come away with the result that we are looking for."
