Stegmann returns for Bulls

The Vodacom Bulls have made a number of changes to their side ahead of the clash against the Blues at Loftus this weekend.

Jono Ross becomes the fourth man to wear the light blue number 8 jersey in as many weeks as he replaces the unlucky Grant Hattingh, who has gone from starting at lock, to starting at number 8 , to starting in the stands over the course of three roller-coaster weeks. Bok fetcher Deon Stegmann starts at 6 and will look to make a better fist of that position than Ross has in his outings to date.

The other change sees injured Frik Kirsten fall out, to be replaced by Werner Kruger at tighthead. Morne Mellet is fit again and comes onto the bench this week, with Marcel van der Merwe’s utility value seeing him switched to tighthead reserve.

The backline, featuring Jacques-Louis Potigeter at flyahlf again, is unchanged from last week. Akona Ndungane earns his 100th cap in super Rugby for the side.

Vodacom Bulls: 15 Jurgen Visser, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 JJ Engelbrecht, 12 Jan Serfontein, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Jacques-Louis Potgieter, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Jono Ross, 7 Jacques du Plessis, 6 Deon Stegmann, 5 Victor Matfield, 4 Flip van der Merwe (captain), 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 Dean Greyling.
Replacements: 16 Bongi Mbonambi, 17 Morné Mellett, 18 Marcel van der Merwe, 19 Paul Willemse, 20 Jacques Engelbrecht, 21 Piet van Zyl, 22 Handré Pollard, 23 Ulrich Beyers.
