Outside centre Dries Swanepoel has recovered from his injury to take his place in the Vodacom Blue Bulls starting line-up against the Hino Valke in their SuperSport Rugby Challenge match at Loftus Versfeld on Friday, 8 June.

Kickoff is at 15:00.

The other changes in the starting team see Denzil Hill slot in at blindside flank for his first start of the season while Conraad van Vuuren comes in for Mornay Smith at prop.

“We are happy with the growth and momentum in the team. We played very well for 50 minutes against the Welwhitschias but we struggled to close out the match when the opportunities presented themselves,” said Vodacom Blue Bulls head coach, David Manuel.
