The Bulls host the Force to start our evening double header.
The Bulls got their season off to a great start by beating the Stormers last week, and will look to retain that momentum before heading on their tour to Australia and New Zealand. A few injury enforced changes have resulted in starts for Arno Botha and Jacques Potgieter, and a potential debut for Sampie Mastriet on the wing and Jean Cook off the bench.
The Force have made a few changes themselves, after being on the wrong side of two results so far, by starting Sias Ebersohn. One has to expect the Bulls to get five points from this encounter.
