Marco van Staden will start in one of two changes to the Vodacom Bulls’ starting lineup for their match against the Pumas in Nelspruit on Saturday.
Van Staden takes over from fellow Springbok flank Roelof Smit, who drops out of the match-day 23 entirely.
The only other change is in the backline, where Marnitz Boshoff gets an opportunity at flyhalf while Manie Libbok is named on the bench.
Ruan Steenkamp will again lead the side after taking over from Burger Odendaal, who pulled out of last weekend’s match with a leg injury shortly before kick-off.
Bulls – 15 Divan Rossouw, 14 Cornal Hendricks, 13 Johnny Kotze, 12 Dylan Sage, 11 Rosko Specman, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Embrose Papier, 8 Tim Agaba, 7 Marco van Staden, 6 Ruan Steenkamp (c), 5 Ruan Nortje, 4 Andries Ferreira, 3 Wiehahn Herbst, 2 Jaco Visagie, 1 Simphiwe Matanzima.
