The Bulls will be playing the Sunwolves this weekend in Singapore as they return to Super Rugby action.
Springbok flyhalf Handre Pollard will be leading the side this weekend as Burger Odendaal is out due to injury.
The Bulls have some players returning in Jamba Ulengo, Hanro Liebenberg and Jannes Kirsten
Kriel and Kotze will make up the midfield as Papier and Pollard will run out as 9 and 10.
Bulls coach John Mitchell has welcomed the return to Super Rugby after the international break.
“It is great to be back playing in the tournament again. We had a good break, but also had some time together to sort out elements in our play that lacked consistency,” he said.
“The Sunwolves are always dangerous, especially on home turf and we will have to be very principled in our approach and execution if we want to stay in the contest,” said Mitchell.
Kick-off is at 13:35 (SA time).
