No brotherly love from Pienaar
November 26, 1999

Paul Wallace will miss the chance to face his younger brother David (pictured) for the first time when Saracens entertain Munster in the European Cup on Sunday.
The younger Wallace is selected in the Munster back row but Sarries coach Francois Pienaar has dropped his more distinguished brother to the bench after last weekend's disappointing defeat at the hands of Colomiers.
The Irish and Lions prop has never played against his younger brother, or against his former province, and ironically in the past few weeks the European Cup organisers, in their marketing of the event, had conscripted their mother who had asked Paul to leave his little brother alone. It looks as though she will get her wish!
Pienaar has also made a switch at loose head with Argentinean Roberto Grau coming in ahead of David Flatman.
Saracens team: M Mapletoft; R Constable, J Thomson, K Sorrell, R Thirlby; T Lacroix, N Walshe; R Grau, G Chuter, J White, S Murray, D Grewcock, R Hill, T Diprose, F Pienaar (capt). Replacements: M Powell, B Johnson, D Flatman, P Wallace, M Cairns, K Chesney, P Ogilvie.
