Jesse Kriel will make his comeback from injury in one of two changes to the Vodacom Bulls starting lineup for their quarter-final against the Hurricanes on Saturday.
Kriel has been sidelined with an ankle injury in recent weeks, but has recovered and is fit enough to start. The Springbok comes into the lineup for Burger Odendaal, who has been ruled out with a collarbone injury, with the versatile Johnny Kotze shifting to inside centre.
The only other change comes in the pack, as fit-again Jason Jenkins replaces Jannes Kirsten, who drops to the bench.
Bulls –15 Warrick Gelant , 14 Cornal Hendricks, 13 Jesse Kriel, 12 Johnny Kotze, 11 Rosko Specman, 10 Handré Pollard (c), 9 Andre Warner, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Hanro Liebenberg, 6 Marco van Staden, 5 RG Snyman, 4 Jason Jenkins, 3 Trevor Nyakane, 2 Jaco Visagie, 1 Lizo Gqoboka.
Subs: 16 Johan Grobbelaar, 17 Simphiwe Matanzima, 18 Wiehahn Herbst, 19 Jannes Kirsten, 20 Ruan Steenkamp, 21 Ivan van Zyl, 22 Manie Libbok, 23 Divan Rossouw.
