Vodacom Bulls scrumhalf Jano Vermaak will make a 100th Vodacom Super Rugby appearance on Saturday if he takes to the field in his side’s match against The Sharks in Durban.

The former Cats (11 caps) and MTN Lions (62 caps) player will represent the Vodacom Bulls for the 28th time and become South Africa’s 22nd centurion at that level.

He has been named on the bench for the derby clash, but should see action in what is anticipated to be a very bruising affair.

Vodacom Bulls coach, Frans Ludeke, who earlier in the day signed a three year extension as Head Coach, made some minor changes to the team what outplayed the Highlanders last weekend. Two are in the backline.

Bjorn Basson returns to the left wing berth and swop places with Lionel Mapoe, who will move to the bench. It will also be a milestone of sorts for Bjorn Basson, with the try-scoring ace playing in his 50th match of Super Rugby, having also represented the Toyota Cheetahs nine times.

The most experienced Super Rugby midfielder in the country, Wynand Olivier, is also back at 12, with Jan Serfontein moving to the bench. Both Serfontein and replacement flyhalf Louis Fouchè have niggles and a final call on who will play in Durban will be made later.

Ludeke also refreshed his front row with Werner Kruger and Dean Greyling returning in place of Frik Kirsten and Mornè Mellett. Willie Wepener also rotates with Callie Visagie on the bench.

 

The team to play The Sharks (with Super caps) is:

Jürgen Visser (7), Akona Ndungane (91), J J Engelbrecht (27), Wynand Olivier (108), Bjorn Basson (49), Morné Steyn (117), Francois Hougaard (51), Pierre Spies (100, c), Dewald Potgieter (61), Deon Stegmann (69), Juandré Kruger (28), Flip van der Merwe (57), Werner Kruger (86), Chiliboy Ralepelle (63), Dean Greyling (32). Replacements: Willie Wepener (61), Frik Kirsten (25), Grant Hattingh (16), Arno Botha (20), Jano Vermaak (99), Louis Fouchè (20)/Jan Serfontein (8), Lionel Mapoe (38).

 

 

Vermaak in 100ste in Vodacom Bulls stryd teen Sharks

 

Die Vodacom Bulls-skrumskakel Jano Vermaak behoort Saterdag in Durban in sy 100ste Vodacom Super Rugby-wedstryd te speel as sy span teen die Sharks uitdraf.

Die voormalige Cats- (11) en MTN Lions speler (62) sal in sy in 28ste wedstryd vir die Vodacom Bulls opdraf as hy van die bank af benodig word en sal Suid-Afrika se 22ste speler word om 100 Super-wedstryde te speel as dit gebeur.

Die Vodacom Bulls-afrigter, Frans Ludeke, wat vandeesweek sy kontrak met drie jaar verleng het, het altesaam vier skuiwe aan die span gemaak wat verlede week die Highlanders oorwin het.

Bjorn Basson is terug op linkervleuel en speel in sy 50ste wedstryd op die vlak. Hy het vroeëer nege keer vir die Toyota Cheetahs uitgedraf. Hy speel in Lionel Mapoe se plek, wat afskuif bank toe.

Die land se mees ervare senter in Super Rugby, Wynand Olivier is terug op 12 in die plek van Jan Serfontein. Die jongeling-senter is as plaasvervanger gekies, maar met beide hy en Louis Fouchè wat met beserings sukkel, sal slegs een wel in Durban in aksie wees.

Ludeke het ook sy voorry verfris en Werner Kruger en Dean Greyling speel in die plek van Frik Kirsten en Mornè Mellett.

 

Die span wat teen The Sharks speel (met Super wedstryde) is:

Jürgen Visser (7), Akona Ndungane (91), J J Engelbrecht (27), Wynand Olivier (108), Bjorn Basson (49), Morné Steyn (117), Francois Hougaard (51), Pierre Spies (100, c), Dewald Potgieter (61), Deon Stegmann (69), Juandré Kruger (28), Flip van der Merwe (57), Werner Kruger (86), Chiliboy Ralepelle (63), Dean Greyling (32). Plaasvervangers: Willie Wepener (61), Frik Kirsten (25), Grant Hattingh (16), Arno Botha (20), Jano Vermaak (99), Louis Fouchè (20)/Jan Serfontein (8), Lionel Mapoe (38).
