The Bulls have named a significantly changed team to face the Force this weekend, with two debutants set to start their Super Rugby careers.

With the injuries to Dewald Potgieter and Deon Stegmann, Jacques Potgieter makes a well-timed return from injury to take his place in the starting team, while Arno Botha is the other new flank.

There are changes amongst the backs as well, with JJ Engelbrecht out injured, Lionel Mapoe swopping the wing jersey for a midfield one, while Sampie Mastriet will make his debut on the wing, Akona Ndungane obviously not quite ready for action.

On the bench, former SA Schools star Jean Cook is set to make his debut while Jan Serfontein comes onto the wood for Francois Venter.

Blue Bulls: 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Sampie Mastriet, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Wynand Olivier, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Mornè Steyn, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Pierre Spies (captain), 7 Arno Botha, 6 Jacques Potgieter, 5 Juandrè Kruger, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1 Mornè Mellett

Substitutes: 16 Willie Wepener, 17 Frik Kirsten, 18 Grant Hattingh, 19 Jean Cook, 20 Jano Vermaak, 21 Louis Fouchè , 22 Jan Serfontein
