Frans Ludeke has named a second-string team to take on the Southern Kings in a Super Rugby warm up game this Saturday night. Derick Kuün will captain the side from the number 6 jersey.
Boks Jaco van der Westhuyzen (fullback) and Akona Ndungane (wing) add some experience to an otherwise green line-up, with tighthead Werner Kruger also having worn the green and gold, although not in a test match. The unavailability of Chilliboy Ralepelle at hooker as necessitated some shuffling, with a fellow Pretoria Boys High boy, Henry Bantjes starting and former Lions and Griquas rake Hansie van Dyk coming onto the bench.
Here is the full team:
Jaco van der Westhuyzen, Akona Ndungane, Stephan Dippenaar, Stefan Watermeyer, Sampie Mastriet, Francois Brummer, Ruan Snyman, Gerrit-Jan van Velze, CJ Stander, Derick Kuün (capt), Juandré Kruger, Fudge Mabeta, Werner Kruger, Henry Bantjes, Dean Greyling.
Replacements: Hans van Dyk, Frik Kirsten, Cornell Hess, Tendayi Chikukwa, Okkie Kruger, Dustin Jinka, Louis Fouché, Bradley Moolman, Courtnall Skosan
