Coach Hawies Fourie announced his team with a couple of changes:
Cameron Dawson will be replacing Schalk Ferreira in the nr 1 jersey. Gideon van der Merwe has a couple of smaller niggles and will be rested this week. Andisa Ntsila is back in the starting line-up. George Cronje will be making his return after a long injury when he sets foot on the field. In the backline, Siya Masuku, David Brits and Clayton Blommetjies are back in their regular positions.
“We had two disappointing losses in a row, but the guys are upbeat and positive. We’ve just got to get back on the horse again. Seven days in rugby is a long time. We’ve prepared well this week and everyone is still positive about the next match. Hopefully, we can get a good start,” said Captain Ruan Pienaar.
“A clash against the Bulls is always exciting and the Bulls have a good side. I think it is about going out, executing and trusting the plan and what we’ve done all season.”
