Bulls v Cheetahs: Teams
At Loftus Versfeld Stadium, Saturday June 30, kick-off 7.05pm
Bulls coach Frans Ludeke has made one change to his starting line-up for Saturday's clash with the Cheetahs in Pretoria.
Flanker Jacques Potgieter comes in for CJ Stander who drops to the bench in place of Arno Botha.
Potgieter made his debut for the Springboks against England last weekend and will be looking to continue that form in the outing against the Cheetahs.
The 26-year-old, who picked up a knee injury during the overseas leg of the competition, just missed out on selection for the match against the Stormers in Round 15.
Fit-again Frik Kirsten is the only other change, replacing Rayno Gerber on the replacements bench. The versatile prop has recovered from a broken hand, also sustained on the Australian leg of the overseas tour.
Changes aplenty for Cheetahs
Meanwhile, Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has rung the changes for the trip to Pretoria.
There are a total of six changes to the side which beat the Waratahs 35-34 last time out in Bloemfontein.
Trevor Nyakane comes in for the injured Coenie Ooasthuizen at loosehead, while Marcel van der Merwe gets a rare start at tighthead in place of WP Nel.
The only other change up front sees Ashley Johnson moving from the flank to number eight where he replaces Philip van der Walt. Johnson's place on the side of the scrum is taken by Pieter Labuschagne.
Amongst the backs Willie le Roux takes over from Hennie Daniller at full-back, while Rocco Jansen - who played on the right wing against the Waratahs - moves over to Le Roux's regular position on the left wing.
This switch means that Philip Snyman will wear Jansen's number 14 jersey.
Bulls: 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 JJ Engelbrecht, 12 Wynand Olivier, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Morne Steyn, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Pierre Spies (c), 7 Jacques Potgieter, 6 Dewald Potgieter, 5Juandre Kruger, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1 Dean Greyling.
