Bulls drop Sadie for Lions encounter

Bulls coach Frans Ludeke has made two changes to his run-on fifteen to face the Lions in Johannesburg this weekend, with the axing of outside centre Johann Sadie among the talking points.

Much was made in the off-season of Sadie’s decision to leave the Cape, where it seemed he was destined to wait in line behind a bevy of Bok centres, for Pretoria, where persistent rumours suggest that a contractual clause would guarantee him a starting spot in the number 13 jersey. To say that the young man has not lived up to the hype so far would probably be fair, though and with the Super Rugby competition heading into just its eighth round, coach Frans Ludeke is already looking at other options.

Another former WP man, JJ Engelbrecht, comes in to take Sadie’s place at centre, while the loss of Flip van der Merwe upfront sees Juandre Kruger move into the number 4 jersey and Wilhelm Steenkamp start next to him. Additionally, flank Dewald Potgieter has been passed fit for this clash and will play off the bench after missing out on two months’ of action due to a self-inflicted wrist injury.

Bulls:
15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 JJ Engelbrecht, 12 Wynand Olivier, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Morné Steyn, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Pierre Spies (captain), 7 Jacques Potgieter, 6 CJ Stander, 5 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 4 Juandre Kruger, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1 Dean Greyling

Substitutes: 16 Bongi Mbonambi, 17 Frik Kirsten, 18 Dewald Potgieter, 19 Arno Botha, 20 Jano Vermaak, 21 Louis Fouche, 22 Johann Sadie
