Brad Barritt is (probably) back, but Steve Sykes and Rory Kockott are still out.

Wes Bodmer comes in at left wing for Henno Metz, while Fred Michalak is named amongst the subs. Barritt will be at inside cente if he comes through a fitness test. If not, Andries Strauss will continue at 12.

Deon Carstens will miss the match through injury, but Jannie du Plessis will deputise at loosehead. Albert van den Berg earns his 50th Currie Cup cap, partnering Johann Muller in the second row.

  • Having a look at the side and on paper we should walk the cc but on the field thats another story Its like they are playing cos its their job rather than its their passion. Did anybody get to watch the craven week game lions cheetahs yesterday that was passion and maybe thats what we need

  • And I hope Plum has wised up a lil and will replace Daniel or Botes with Ndlovu…and keep the muscle in Nick on…even though the Valke loosies are not the same as the Bulls…they still have muscle at least…

    Firstly….Boksburg is not Johannesburg….Boksburg is a city on its own since early 90′s…

    Secondly….he went to Martin primary….so he went to primary school in Boksburg….so not all Durban…
    But I guess your teen days is what makes you who you are….

    Are you going to have a poll section like SuperSport…
    Where they give you the poll’s and results for the last 6/7 I think….and it stays on (due to the fact that they don’t have a new poll every day) for over a month….

  • Rob, going back to the convo on the Player ratings, can you do something where the SW visitors can rate each player and it works out an average rating for each player based on votes?

    You’re the techno-Zeus so you would have to figure out the mechanics!

    I thought it would be Toti v Hillcrest clubs.

    Unless it is Amanzimtoti High School vs Hillcrest high School.

    Greenaway used to play for Toti Rugby Club 1st side. # 12 i think.

    Actually looking forward to watching the curtain raiser as well.

    Glad to see the KZNRU and Supersport have struck a deal to show quite a few of the regular club season matches on Supersport.
