The Highlanders travel to the Jacaranda city to play the Bulls.

The winner of this match will move out of the bottom three and the loser will move into the bottom three.

Will the Highlanders use possibly their best opportunity on SA soil?

Or will the changes to the Bulls make a difference?

Kick-off in Pretoria at 15:00 SA time.

  • I am SOOOOO deflated after that Sharks game. Still can’t get over how we didn’t win it. Just hope it doesn’t dent the confidence. I mean the boys were great in the first half and really threw it away!
