The Bulls will run out with the same starting fifteen against the Brumbies on Saturday, should prop Dean Greyling recover in time for the match. Frans Ludeke has left the rest of his starting team unchaged, only bracketing Dawie Steyn in next to Dean Greyling.

On the bench, Gerrit-Jan van Velze will replace the injured again Dewald Potgieter, who managed a few minutes on the park before injuring his hamstring.

Johann Sadie will see another weekend on the bench as Ludeke has opted to play JJ Engelbrecht again, after a good performance against the Lions last weekend.

Bulls: 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 JJ Engelbrecht, 12 Wynand Olivier, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Morne Steyn, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Pierre Spies (captain), 7 Jacques Potgieter, 6 CJ Stander, 5 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 4 Juandre Kruger, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1 Dean Greyling/Dawie Steyn.

Substitutes: 16 Bongi Mbonambi, 17 Frik Kirsten, 18 Gerrit-Jan van Velze, 19 Arno Botha, 20 Jano Vermaak, 21 Louis Fouche, 22 Johann Sadie.


  • Thats a good solid side. However if things go horribly wrong for the starting 15 I cant see the bench being able to change it around. Louis Fouche is catching some serious splinters!

  • Go The Wild Horses!! 😈

    I hope Jake White has a plan for the bulls.

    Maybe hassle their forwards till they lose their cool and concede yellow cards?

  • I see the Springboks today welcomed Klipdrift as a sponsor.

    NOW I am 100% convinced they are trying to get as many Bulls as possible into the side.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 4) : Shouldn’t it be Archers Strawberry sponsoring then? 🙂
