The Bulls team to take on the Stormers this weekend has been announced, with two changes from the team that lost to the Chiefs on their last tour match last weekend.

Locks Juandre Kruger and Wilhelm Steenkamp swop places, with Kruger starting again, and in the midfield the rotation continues with Johann Sadie dropping out of the match 22 for JJ Engelbrecht to take over outside Wynand Olivier. Francois Venter comes onto the bench.

The Bulls take on the Stormers in a match that sees the top two South African teams tackle each other a week before they will be joining forces to take on the English.

Bulls: 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 JJ Engelbrecht, 12 Wynand Olivier, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Morne Steyn, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Pierre Spies (captain), 7 CJ Stander, 6 Dewald Potgieter, 5 Juandre Kruger, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1 Dean Greyling

Substitutes: 16 Willie Wepener, 17 Rayno Gerber, 18 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 19 Arno Botha, 20 Jano Vermaak, 21 Louis Fouche, 22 Francois Venter

  • @robdylan (Comment 4) : if the stormers keep missing bonus points, well catch them. If we beat the bulls, were top of the conf.

  • @jako (Comment 6) : are the Stormers REALLY going to fail to get a bonus against the Rebels? And the Lions?

  • @robdylan (Comment 9) : They couldn’t manage one against the Force/Blues and also the first round Lions/Cheetahs games.

    Why would they now suddenly turn that around.

    I also think they should get a bonus point against at very least the Lions, but maybe going for the Bonus point will cause a surprise loss somewhere, as it really doesn’t look as though they’re capable of scoring more than 3 tries a match.

  • @wpw (Comment 11) : I didn’t realise Keo was journo. They all strike me more as gossip mongers than anything else.

  • I guess it’s out of our hands anyway and all we can ultimately do is just try to get 14-15 point from the 3 games we have left. Still, my deep suspicion is that a Stormers win this weekend might end up suiting us better in the long run

  • @robdylan (Comment 14) : I think with Bekker out, the Bulls may just shade this one

  • @Franshark (Comment 16) : they’re going to come back a lot stronger after the break too… they have so few Boks that pretty much all of their side will get a 3-week break
