The Bulls host the Force to start our evening double header.

The Bulls got their season off to a great start by beating the Stormers last week, and will look to retain that momentum before heading on their tour to Australia and New Zealand. A few injury enforced changes have resulted in starts for Arno Botha and Jacques Potgieter, and a potential debut for Sampie Mastriet on the wing and Jean Cook off the bench.

The Force have made a few changes themselves, after being on the wrong side of two results so far, by starting Sias Ebersohn. One has to expect the Bulls to get five points from this encounter.

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

Replacements: 16 Willie Wepener, 17 Frik Kirsten, 18 Grant Hattingh, 19 Jean Cook, 20 Jano Vermaak, 21 Louis Fouche, 22 Jan Serfontein/Francois Venter

Force: 1. Pek Cowan,2. Nathan Charles,3. Salesi Ma’afu,4. Toby Lynn ,5. Hugh McMeniman,6. Angus Cottrell,7. Matt Hodgson (c),8. Richard Brown ,9. Alby Mathewson,10. Sias Ebersohn,11. Alfie Mafi,12. Kyle Godwin,13. Winston Stanley ,14. Nick Cummins,15. Will Tupou

Replacements : 16. Heath Tessmann,17. Tetera Faulkner,18. Sam Wykes,19. Ben McCalman,20. Chris Alcock,21. Mick Snowden,22. Jayden Hayward

  • I’m really hoping the Bulls give the Force-less a hiding of note.

    Just another team that does not deserve the right to waist so much money on plane tickets to partake in international sport.

  • @McLovin (Comment 39) : I’m more like “Meh…”.

    I was thinking about Plum’s close-your-eyes-and-kick strategy which reared it’s ugly head for the fourth season in a row last week, and I thought, “Maybe it’s cos of the humidity in Durban.”

    But then I realised that doesn’t explain the away games… 😕
