Pumas prop De-Jay Terblanche has been named at loosehead for the start of the season in his quest to overtake Francois Rossouw as the most capped Puma of all time.

The Pumas kick-start their SuperSport Challenge campaign in Nelspruit’s Mbombela Stadium against the Blue Bulls on Saturday.

Terblanche will play in his 175th game in the Pink and Grey jersey, which is only eight short of Rossouw’s all-time record.

The Matie flyhalf Chistopher Smith will make his first class debut only five days after winning the Varsity Cup with the Maties, replacing Kobus Marais who has to undergo ankle surgery.

Former Pumas Craven Week captain, Barend Smit, who played four games for the Lions, will also make his senior Puma debut at outside centre.

Inside centre Hennie Skorbinski will once again lead the side with Brian Shabangu as his understudy.

 

Pumas versus Blue Bulls: Devon Williams (22/5); JP Lewis (22/9), Barend Smit, Hennie Skorbinski © (46/11), Ruwellyn Isbel (41/16); Chistopher Smit, Stephan Ungerer (10/2); Willie Engelbrecht (16/4), Nardus van der Walt (23/3), Brian Shabangu (39/7), Cameron Lindsay (8/0), Tazz Fuzani (6/0), Louis Albertse (7/0), Marko Jansen van Vuuren (14/4), De-Jay Terblanche (174/12). Reserves: Simon Westraadt (20/0), Marné Coetzee (21/0), Jannie Stander (39/4), Hilton Lobberts (4/0), Reynier van Rooyen (78/10), Justin van Staden (61/6), Trompie Pretorius (79/19).

 

Die Pumas se loskopstut De-Jay Terblanche is ingesluit in hul span wat die seisoen afskop in sy aanslag om die mees ervare Puma in die geskiedenis, Francois Rossouw, verby te steek.

Die Pumas begin hul SuperSport-veldtog Saterdag in Nelspruit se Mbombela-stadion teen die Blou Bulle af.

Terblanche speel in sy 175e wedstryd in die Pienk-en-Grystrui wat slegs agt minder as Rossouw se algehele rekord is.

Die Matie-losskakel Chistopher Smith maak ook sy eersterangse buiging net vyf dae nadat hy die Varsitybeker met die Maties gewen het. Hy vervang Kobus Marais wie ‘n operasie aan sy enkel moet ondergaan.

Die voormalige Puma Cravenweek-kaptein Barend Smit, wie vier wedstryde vir die Leeus gespeel het, sal ook sy senior buiging vir die Pumas maak.

Die binnesenter Hennie Skorbinski sal die span weer aanvoer met Brian Shabangu as sy onder-kaptein.
