Bulls vs Kings

It’s hard previewing this game as both teams have been pants in their fixtures thus far, the Kings have the slightest of edges due to their first half showing in the season opener against Western Province but both teams have almost 100 points racked up in the “against” column.

Frans Ludeke has made wholesale changes to his squad making no less than 7 changes to the team that went down 41-17 in Cape Town, notably livewire hooker Bongi Mbonambi gets a long overdue start.

Carlos Spencer has resisted the urge to follow his counterpart and has only tweaked his team , he has beefed up his pack by naming Steven Sykes and Darron Nel as his lock pairing and has only made one injury enforced change to his backline.

Blue Bulls – 15 Jesse Kriel, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 William Small-Smith, 12 Burger Odendaal, 11 Sampie Mastriet, 10 Tony Jantjies, 9 Rudi Paige, 8 Jono Ross, 7 Jacques du Plessis, 6 Deon Stegmann (c), 5 Grant Hattingh, 4 Paul Willemse, 3 Marcel van der Merwe, 2 Bongi Mbonambi, 1 Dean Greyling.
Subs: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Werner Kruger, 18 Nicolaas Janse van Rensburg, 19 Wiaan Liebenburg, 20 Piet van Zyl, 21 Joshua Stander, 22 Ulrich Beyers.

EP Kings – 15 Scott van Breda, 14 Ronnie Cooke, 13 Tim Whitehead, 12 Shane Gates, 11 Siviwe Soyizwapi, 10 Gary van Aswegen, 9 Kevin Luiters, 8 Luke Watson (c), 7 Paul Schoeman, 6 Stefan Willemse, 5 Steven Sykes, 4 Darron Nell, 3 Tom Botha, 2 Edgar Marutlulle, 1 Lizo Gqoboka.
Subs: 16 Mike van Vuuren, 17 Charles Marais, 18 Steven Cummins, 19 Thembelani Bholi, 20 Jaco Grobler, 21 George Whitehead, 22 Siyanda Grey.
