Our Super Saturday of rugby starts with an early morning game from New Zealand, where the Highlanders host the Bulls.

The Highlanders find themselves outside the play-off zone and will be very eager to get back in, especially seeing as this is a home game for them. At the time of writing, the team has not been announced, but the Bulls can expect an onslaught led by the forwards.

The Bulls are aiming to be the first South African team ever to win all four their tour matches, but face the first of two stern tests before heading home. If the Bulls manage a win today, they will all but secure their spot at the top of the log, considering their remaining fixtures back in South Africa.

Highlanders: TBA

Bulls: Zane Kirchner Akona Ndungane , Johann Sadie, Wynand Olivier , Bjorn Basson , Morne Steyn , Francois Hougaard , Pierre Spies (c), CJ Stander, Dewald Potgieter , Juandre Kruger , Flip van der Merwe , Werner Kruger , Chiliboy Ralepelle , Dean Greyling .

Replacements: Willie Wepener, Rayno Gerber, Wilhelm Steenkamp , Arno Botha , Jano Vermaak , Louis Fouche , JJ Engelbrecht.

Referee: Ian Smith
Assistant Ref 1:Garratt Williamson
Assistant Ref 2:Kane McBride
TMO : Matthew Muir

  • OK, the Bulls have 10 points from their tour so far and we got 11 (if I remember correctly). They have the Chiefs next.

  • Bulls look ordinary at best..last weeks game was proof of this..lapse in concentration from the waratahs and they won it..sharks should take them at home..
