The Bulls are back after their bye last weekend and will have one thing on their mind, winning all their remaining matches to get their asses back in the play off race. They start their mission against the Rebels this weekend, who start their first ever tour of Southern Africa against possibly the best team from Africa over the last few years.

The Bulls are without Victor Matfield, who has been ruled out by injury, and will be lead by instrumental scrumhalf Fourie du Preez. I can only see one result in this match, and even though every single Sharks supporter will be willing on the Rebels, the Bulls will win this by at least 15 points.

Kick off is at 17h00

Bulls: 15. Zane Kirchner, 14. Gerhard van den Heever, 13. Stephan Dippenaar, 12. Wynand Olivier, 11. Bjorn Basson, 10. MornΓ© Steyn, 9. Fourie du Preez (Captain), 8. Pierre Spies, 7. Dewald Potgieter, 6. Deon Stegmann, 5. Danie Rossouw, 4. Bakkies Botha, 3. Werner Kruger, 2. Gary Botha, 1. Dean Greyling

Replacements: 16. Chiliboy Ralepelle, 17. Rossouw De Klerk, 18. Flip van der Merwe, 19. Victor Matfield, 20. Derick Kuun, 21. Francois Hougaard, 22. Francois Brummer

Rebels: 15. Richard Kingi, 14. Lachlan Mitchell, 13. Afusipa Taumoepeau, 12. Stirling Mortlock (Captain), 11. Luke Rooney, 10. Julian Huxley, 9. Nick Phipps, 8. Gareth Delve, 7. Michael Lipman, 6. Hoani MacDonald, 5. Hugh Pyle, 4. Alister Campbell, 3. Laurie Weeks, 2. Ged Robinson, 1. Greg Somerville

Replacements: 16. Heath Tessmann, 17. Nic Henderson, 18. Kevin O`Neill, 19. Jarrod Saffy, 20. Tim Davidson, 21. Peter Betham, 22. Cooper Vuna

  • @juba_fan (Comment 3) : how awesome was that, i just woke up to find the lions actually won a game and the stormers lost their first game on tour with a few tough ones to come, sharks really need to do the business in the coming weeks
