Blue Bulls coach Pote Human has made four changes to his starting XV for their match against the Pumas in Pretoria on Friday.
There are two changes to the backline, where scrumhalves Ivan van Zyl and André Warner rotate, with Warner, who has started every game for the Bulls until now, dropping to the bench.
Human also welcomes back Johnny Kotze in the midfield, where he will partner Franco Naude, with JT Jackson missing out.
No 8 Hanro Liebenberg has recovered from his flu strain, which caused his late withdrawal from the team that beat Griquas, and replaces Jano Venter in the starting lineup.
Dayan van der Westhuizen will make his first start of the season in place of the injured Trevor Nyakane.
Blue Bulls – 15 Divan Rossouw, 14 Jade Stighling, 13 Jonny Kotze, 12 Franco Naude, 11 Duncan Matthews, 10 Manie Libbok, 9 Ivan van Zyl, 8 Hanro Liebenberg (c), 7 Nic de Jager, 6 Ruan Steenkamp, 5 Eli Snyman, 4 Hendré Stassen, 3 Dayan van der Westhuizen, 2 Jaco Visagie, 1 Matthys Basson.
Subs: 16 Edgar Marutlulle, 17 Conrad van Vuuren, 18 Ruan Nortje, 19 Jano Venter, 20 André Warner, 21 Tinus de Beer, 22 Dylan Sage.
