Welcome to Loftus, where the Bulls are at home for the first time this year.

Not before time either, since they’ve managed to lose their opening two away fixtures. The Lions, surprisingly, are unbeaten after two rounds and will desperately want to add a Bull scalp to their collection.

Kick-off in Pretoria is at 17h05.

Vodacom Bulls: 15 Jurgen Visser, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 JJ Engelbrecht, 12 Jan Serfontein, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Jacques-Louis Potgieter, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Grant Hattingh, 7 Jacques du Plessis, 6 Jono Ross, 5 Victor Matfield, 4 Flip van der Merwe (captain), 3 Frik Kirsten, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 Dean Greyling.
Replacements: 16 Bongi Mbonambi, 17 Werner Kruger, 18 Marcel van der Merwe, 19 Paul Willemse, 20 Jacques Engelbrecht, 21 Piet van Zyl, 22 Handré Pollard, 23 Ulrich Beyers.

Lions: 15 Chrysander Botha, 14 Deon van Rensburg, 13 Jacobus Jonker, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Ruan Combrinck, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Francois de Klerk, 8 Warren Whiteley (captain), 7 Warwick Tecklenburg, 6 Jaco Kriel, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Franco Mostert, 3 Julian Redelinghuys, 2 Robbie Coetzee, 1 Schalk van der Merwe.
Replacements: 16 Willie Wepener, 17 Jacques van Rooyen, 18 Ruan Dreyer, 19 Luvuyiso Lusaseni, 20 Willie Britz, 21 Ross Cronje, 22 Courtnall Skosan, 23 Coenie van Wyk.

  • Bulls starving the Lions of the ball and Potgieter controlling the game from 10. The Bulls are playing very good.

  • Tough luck Mutley but I suspected the Bulls would be a much tougher prospect with JLP at the helm

  • JLP making a huge difference for the bulls, does not say much about the prospects for their up and coming fh’s.

    Matfield the difference in the lineouts…pretty average otherwise, but killed the lions lineout.

  • Can someone please tell the commentator (I think it’s Bros) that it’s Wepener and not Wepenaar.
