In the second of two massive Currie Cup clashes today, and another that will have a huge bearing on where semi finals are played, and maybe even who takes part in the semi finals, when the Blue Bulls, after their draw to the Cheetahs last weekend, host Western Province.

The Bulls have stuck to their new flyhalf after rotating at the beginning of the season, with young Louis Fouche standing off against Isma-eel Dollie, a head to head we did not expect to see! The battle of the tight fives should be rather interesting, as should the loose trio’s as Jacques Potgieter makes his Bulls debut.

Western Province welcome back De Kock Steenkamp to their second row, bolstering the tight five with some much needed weight and experience. The loosies of Fenton-Wells and Daniller will have to prove their mettle against the Potgieters.

In my opinion, with the exception of the flyhalf position, the Province backline is much stronger than that of the Bulls, and it should be great to see them running with ball in hand. Strap in for what should be a cracker of a game.

Blue Bulls: 15. Zane Kirchner, 14. Akona Ndungane, 13. Wynand Olivier, 12. Francois Venter, 11. Bjorn Basson, 10. Louis Fouche, 9. Jano Vermaak, 8. CJ Stander, 7. Jacques Potgieter, 6. Dewald Potgieter, 5. Juandre Kruger, 4. Flip van der Merwe, 3. Werner Kruger, 2. Gary Botha (Captain), 1. Dean Greyling

Replacements: 16. Willie Wepener, 17. Rossouw de Klerk, 18. Gerrit-Jan van Velze, 19. Arno Botha, 20. Dustin Jinka, 21. Francois Brummer, 22. Jurgen Visser

Western Province: 15. Conrad Jantjes, 14. Danie Poolman, 13. Johann Sadie, 12. Marcel Brache, 11. JJ Engelbrecht, 10. Isma-eel Dollie, 9. Dewaldt Duvenage, 8. Nick Koster, 7. Tertius Daniller, 6. Nick Fenton-Wells, 5. De Kock Steenkamp, 4. Hilton Lobberts, 3. Brok Harris, 2. Tiaan Liebenberg (Captain), 1. Steven Kitshoff

Replacements: 16. Deon Fourie, 17. Frans Malherbe, 18. Nizaam Carr, 19. Siya Kolisi, 20. Quinn Roux, 21. Nick Groom, 22. Berton Wesley Klaasen
