The first game of the weekend, an early start indeed this Friday afternoon, sees the Bulls given the ideal opportunity to get their campaign back on track. Should they underestimate the Pumas though, they will go down for the fourth time this season, and another loss will root them to the bottom of the log with quite a deficit to make up.

The Pumas are battling this season, and even though they have pushed a few bigger teams to close losses, they could not beat the Leopards last weekend, and have still not won a game in 2011.

The Bulls are in the second week of having their Boks back, which did not help them against the Lions last weekend, but is sure to have an impact against a ‘smaller’ union. The all Springbok front row will be hoping to make a big impact in this game, showing they have what it takes to play in the green and Gold.

This match kicks off at 17h00.

Pumas: 15 Carl Bezuidenhout, 14 Deon Scholtz, 13 JW Jonker, 12 Tian Meyer, 11 MJ Mentz, 10 Ricardo Croy, 9 Shaun Venter, 8 Christo le Roux, 7 Jaco Bouwer, 6 Corne Steenkamp (captain), 5 Marius Coetzer, 4 Eduan van der Walt, 3 Ashley Buys, 2 Marthinus van der Westhuizen, 1 Dawie Steyn.

Replacements: 16 Torsten van Jaarsveld, 17 De-Jay Terblanche, 18 Rudi Mathee, 19 RW Kember, 20 Hendrik van der Nest, 21 Tiaan Marx, 22 Johan Jackson.

Blue Bulls: 15 Jurgen Visser, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 Zane Kirchner, 12 Wynand Olivier, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 CJ Stander, 7 Dewald Potgieter (captain), 6 Deon Stegmann, 5 Juandré Kruger, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1 Dean Greyling.

Replacements: 16 Gary Botha, 17 Rossouw de Klerk, 18 Gerrit-Jan van Velze, 19 Arno Botha, 20 Dustin Jinka, 21 Louis Fouché, 22 Francois Venter.

Referee: Andrew Lees (Australia)

  • This will be funny – what if the Bulls get relegated to the first division and the EP Kings go about to the premier division and then get the Bulls’ Super Rugby rights… 😈 :mrgreen: 😀 :mrgreen:

  • @sharks sharkie (comment 1) :mrgreen: methinks many a conspiracy theorist thinks SARU were planning just that when they saw the Bulls lose 4 in a row and had that meeting and made a decision without much input from the unions!!! 😯 Pumas and Leopards will go down. I have’nt heard about relegation/promotion games – has anyone?
