Vodacom Blue Bulls Under-21 coach Pote Human is keen to continue with the progress showed by his team this far in the SA Rugby Under-21 Provincial Championship when they take on the Cell C Sharks in Durban on Saturday.

The Blue Bulls secured a first win out of three starts against the Golden Lions last week and Human now wants the team to maintain that form.

“We have not always been rewarded with our efforts, so the win was important to us. We need to keep improving though if we want to play our best rugby at the end of the season,” Human said.

The coach made enforced changes to the team that edged out the Golden Lions.. Kurt Webster and Ruben van Heerden replace the injured Divan Rossouw and Aston Fortuin at fullback and lock respectively.

Webster is replaced by Mervano da Silva on the bench.

The team is: Kurt Webster, Keanan van Wyk, Franco Naude, JT Jackson, Dewald Naude, Tinus de Beer, Ivan van Zyl, Jsuanre Swanepoel, Abongile Nonkontwana (c), Marco van Staden, Eli Snyman, Ruben van Heerden, Stefaan Grundlingh, Alandre van Rooyen, Njabulo Gumede. Replacements: Jan-Henning Campher, Jaco Holtzhausen, Sam Mitchell, Dean van der Westhuizen, Theo Maree, Adrian Maebane, Mervano da Silva.
