The Bulls have made one change to their team that will face the Chiefs in Hamilton this weekend, and for the first time in a while it is not an injury enforced change.

Juandré Kruger will see some bench time while Wilhelm Steenkamp gets to start alongside Flip van der Merwe in the second row. The team is also bolstered by the fact that neither CJ Stander nor Dewald Potgieter’s injuries in the match against the Highlanders were serious enough to keep them out of this table topping clash.

In further news from Pretoria, the Bulls have announced that they will, for the first time, play in their pink jerseys at Loftus, in an attempt to raise awareness and money for the Cancer Association of South Africa. In a similar ploy as the Sharks did in the 2010 Currie Cup, the fans are encouraged to wear pink to the match, where R20 000 will be donated for every try the Bulls scored against the Stormers.

The Bulls tackle the Chiefs on Friday, with kick-off being at 9h35 SA time.

Bulls:15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Wynand Olivier, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Morné Steyn, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Pierre Spies (captain), 7 CJ Stander, 6 Dewald Potgieter, 5 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1 Dean Greyling

Substitutes: 16 Willie Wepener, 17 Rayno Gerber, 18 Juandré Kruger, 19 Arno Botha, 20 Jano Vermaak, 21 Louis Fouché, 22 JJ Engelbrecht


  • Sorry Rich, just thinking of the logisitcal issues, how are the Bulls players going to make the final Bok training camp without being out on their feet from jet-lag? I see they play Saturday and not Friday.

    Where did I say they are playing Friday?

    And I never said anything about the Bok squad? Or am I missing something?
