Frans Ludeke has recalled Jaco Pretorius for Vodacom Bulls’ match that is going to be played in Palmerston North on Saturday against the Highlanders, but the majority of the team that has played tremendous rugby thus far has been kept unchanged.
Pretorius swaps places with JP Nel and in the front row Rayno Gerber starts at tighthead prop with Werner Kruger sitting on the reserve bench.
As a result of Deon Stegmann’s suspension Dewald Potgieter was selected in a loose trio in combination with Pierre Spies and Pedrie Wannenburg and therefore Jacques Burger will be the loose forward reserve on the bench at the side of guys like Nel, Kruger and Chiliboy Ralepelle.
Vodacom Bulls: Zane Kirchner; Akona Ndungane, Jaco Pretorius, Wynand Olivier, Gerhard van den Heever; Morné Steyn, Fourie du Preez (captain); Pierre Spies, Pedrie Wannenburg, Dewald Potgieter, Danie Rossouw, Bakkies Botha, Rayno Gerber, Derick Kuün, Gurthrö Steenkamp.
Substitutes: Chiliboy Ralepelle, Werner Kruger, Wilhelm Steenkamp, Jacques Burger, Heini Adams, Burton Francis, JP Nel.
