The Blue Bulls have included Bok winger Bjorn Basson in their team for Friday’s Currie Cup clash against the Sharks at Loftus Versveld.
Basson replaces Sampie Mastriet at wing in the only change to the backline that ran riot against Griquas in Kimberley on Saturday (although Akona Ndungane does moves from left to right wing in the process), while Frik Kisrsten replaces Werner Kruger at tighthead in the only change to the run-on forward pack.
The Bulls need a big win in each of their last two games to remain in play-off contention.
Blue Bulls: 15 Jurgen Visser, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 William Small-Smith, 12 Francois Venter, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Handré Pollard, 9 Rudy Paige, 8 Jono Ross (capt), 7 Jacques du Plessis, 6 Wiaan Liebenberg, 5 David Bulbring, 4 Paul Willemse, 3 Frik Kirsten, 2 Mbongeni Mbonambi, 1 Marcel van der Merwe
Subs: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Dean Greyling, 18 Grant Hattingh, 19 Jacques Engelbrecht, 20 Lohan Jacobs, 21 Ulrich Beyers, 22 Sampie Mastriet
