Blue Bulls coach Pine Pienaar has named his squad to take on the Sharks at The Shark Tank on Saturday.

The side, which features 3 Springboks in Gary Botha, Akona Ndungane and Dewaldt Potgieter has a very young and inexperienced feel to it and will be captained by hooker Gary Botha.

Pienaar is of the opinion that Gary Botha epitomizes Bulls rugby and will lead from the front, also he is well respected as a senior member of the squad and the youngsters will easily take to his leadership style.

The team is: Jurgen Visser, Gerhard van den Heever, Stephan Dippenaar, Stefan Watermeyer, Akona Ndungane, Francois Brummer, Dustin Jinka, Gerrit-Jan van Velze, Dewald Potgieter, Derick Kuün, Juandré Kruger, Fudge Mabeta, Rossouw de Klerk, Gary Botha (c), Corné Fourie. Replacements: Willie Wepener, Juan Schoeman, Okkie Kruger, CJ Stander, Lohan Jacobs, Marnitz Boshoff, Francois Venter

  • @Villie (Comment 3) : that’s what I am thinking – but you never know.
    I would make Potgieter captain – Botha is not looking into future at all.

    Lovely to see him back, specially not in a Tvl jersey. Should be a nice and relaxed opener for the Bulls.

    😯 😯 How can the coach say Bulls rugby is way past it’s sell by date?

  • Young team. Making Botha captain is dumb though. Although, having seen “Pine” Pienaar (what a kak name) it doesn’t surprise me.

  • @vanmartin (Comment 16) : Agreed. They have more than capable midfield and outside backs. then they have a good pack as well.

    This is not just far from a foregone conclusion for us, this game might actually be an almost certainty for THEM.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 17) : i think if we are honest with ourselves than the conclusion is that even depleted Sharks are far better on paper than this team.
    I am all against complacency – but no excuses for the Sharks to lose it.

    We should have a good chance, but we can’t just write these guys off.

  • Marnitz Boshoff, one step* away from starting

    One step = 10min of Pine Pienaar watching Francois Brummer stuff up to realise he’s made a selection error

  • @speartackle (Comment 25) : No, he’s Pumas, went to Nelspruit. His bru is Ruan Boshoff of Lions fame.

    I have a year long running battle with blue machine about who is better between him and Brummer. It has little to do with player form now and everything to do with winning a battle.

  • @rekinek (Comment 30) : Sorry Rekinek. Taking shortcuts on my phone.
    MS – Morne Steyn
    SR – Superugby

    I think Brummer is overrated. Muzi is Blue Machine and is bound to have something to say about this since he’s believed that Brummer is the next big thing in Pretoria ever since he was awarded Vodacom Cup player of the year.

  • Just a question: Is the coach’s name Pine, as in the ‘pine tree’ or am I being a soutie and not pronouncing it properly? Weird name anyways 🙄

  • So it is a young Sharks side vs a young Bulls side. I think the Sharks will win though because of home ground advantage as well as the fact that I think our team is less young, has more experience and our young players have more experience than the Bulls young players.

    GO SHARKS!!! 🙂
