Bulls coach Frans Ludeke has named an unchanged team for this weekend’s clash withe the visiting Hurricanes at Loftus Verseveld.

In their last outing, Ludeke’s men were denied at the death, losing 15-14 to the Western Force in Perth. The same outfit will be given an opportunity to make amends against a Hurricanes team still smarting from their unfortunate 13-all draw at home to the Sharks.

The Bulls are now out of the title race and will be playing for pride (as well as to save their coach’s job) at Loftus on Saturday. They could save everyone a lot of hassle if they handed over the trophy to the Canes, so that they could take it back to New Zealand with them to drop off in Christchurch.

Bulls team:
Zane Kirchner; Akona Ndungane, JP Nel, Wynand Olivier, Bryan Habana; Derick Hougaard, Fourie du Preez (capt), Pierre Spies, Wikus van Heerden, Pedrie Wannenburg, Danie Rossouw, Bakkies Botha, Rayno Gerber, Derick Kuün, Gurthrö Steenkamp.
Replacements: Bandise Maku, Werner Kruger, Jaco Engels, Wilhelm Steenkamp, Heini Adams, Morné Steyn, Deon Stegmann.


  • Why he persists with JP Nel only he will know.

    I would also play Mametsa in place of slow coach Akona.

    Is there no other hooker better than Kuun?

  • I love the bulls. Frans, I like Heyneke. He started very slow, but ended strong.
    Do not despise small beginnings. You have a top team, pleas take us to the top again.
