Junior Springbok Jacques du Plessis may well make his Super Rugby debut this weekend, with news that Wilhelm Steenkamp will miss this weekend’s match against the Stormers.

SuperSport.com reports that Bulls coach Frans Ludeke is looking at playing the young lock in place of the suspended Steenkamp. Du Plessis made name for himself during the Junior World Championships and may well get a start ahead of Paul Willemse, who was the second in line lock before getting injured three months ago.

Another injury enforced change will come in midfield where Jan Serfontein has been ruled out with a knee injury. It is reported that Francois Venter will replace Serfontein in midfield, combining with JJ Engelbrecht.
