Nizaam Carr will make his first start since returning to Pretoria for a Vodacom Bulls team that features Wandisile Simelane at fullback against Ospreys on Saturday.
Carr, who joined the Bulls as a free agent during the mid-season break, will begin his second stint with the team after playing in Pretoria between 2020 and 2021.
The 31-year-old will don the No 6 jersey vacated by Marcell Coetzee and forms an exciting back row with WJ Steenkamp and Elrigh Louw.
Having been appointed Bulls captain following Coetzee’s departure to Japan, lock Ruan Nortje will lead the team out for the first time.
A re-jigged backline missing Springboks Kurt-Lee Arendse, S’bu Nkosi and Canan Moodie sees Simelane start at fullback, with David Kriel and Stravino Jacobs on the wings.
