Stegmann back to boost Bulls

Flanker Deon Stegmann returns to the Vodacom Blue Bulls' starting lineup for Friday's Currie Cup match against the Pumas at the Mbombela Stadium.

Stegmann was a late injury withdrawal from the team that beat the EP Kings last weekend, but the fit-again stalwart will now return at openside flank.

Jacques du Plessis moves back to the second row alongside Marvin Orie as a result, with RG Snyman dropping back to the bench in place of Clyde Davids.

Blue Bulls – 15 Warrick Gelant, 14 Travis Ismaiel, 13 Dries Swanepoel, 12 Burger Odendaal, 11 Jamba Ulengo, 10 Tian Schoeman, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Arno Botha, 7 Lappies Labuschagne (c), 6 Deon Stegmann, 5 Marvin Orie, 4 Jacques du Plessis, 3 Marcel van der Merwe, 2 Bandise Maku, 1 Pierre Schoeman.
Subs: 16 Corniel Els, 17 Werner Kruger, 18 RG Snyman, 19 Ruan Steenkamp, 20 Ivan van Zyl, 21 Louis Fouché, 22 William Small-Smith.
