Bulls lose a lock too

A hammer blow has hit the Vodacom Bulls ahead of Saturday’s Super Rugby derby against the Sharks as their captain, Flip van der Merwe, has picked up an injury in training.

Bok van der Merwe will now play no role in Saturday’s game. The Bulls’ opponents, the Sharks, suffered a similar fate last week with start lock Pieter-Steph du Toit picking up a horror knee injury during the Thursday training session.

Early indications, though, are that van der Merwe’s hamstring injury is not serious – certainly not season-ending one like du Toit’s ACL injury.

Paul Willemse will move into the starting lineup to replace van der Merwe, with Grant Hattingh moving in to sit on the bench. Victor Matfield will captain the side.

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