The Bulls team to face the Cheetahs has been announced, with coach Pine Pienaar making only one injury enforced change at the side of the scrum.
Arno Botha has been ruled out with a hamstring injury, allowing CJ Stander the opportunity to start the match, with Warwick Tecklenburg taking his spot on the bench.
Johann Sadie, who was injured during the Super Rugby season, and was reportedly fit for this match, fails to make the match 22 as Jan Serfontein retains his spot on the bench.
This is the only change to the team that comprehensively beat Griquas last weekend, and will hope to come away from Bloemfontein with a win over rivals the Cheetahs, after their opening round loss to the Lions.
