Sharksworld has reliably learned of a late change to the Bulls lineup for today’s crunch clash against the Sharks in Durban.

Bok utility forward Danie Rossouw will start in the number 7 jersey in a bid to counter to combined physical threat of Willem Alberts and Jean Deysel. Dewald Potgieter, originally named to start, will swap places with Rossouw and look to add some impact off the bench.

In another possible change, Zane Kirchner is battling with flu and may be forced to cry off at the last minute. Should this be the case, Gerhard van den Heever will start at fullback with Stephan Dippenaar coming into the match 22.


  • Smart move from the Bulls imo.

  • Why the late change? Surely they knew all along that both Deysel & Alberts were playing?

    THINK about what you just said. The Bulls idea of mindgames is a headbutt.

  • Dewald isn’t 100%! However, never understood the logic of keeping Danie on the bench.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 9) : despite being smaller I reckon dewald is a better player overall than Dannnie, but in my books never a good thing to play a player that is not 100%
