Bulls tour group named

Frans Ludeke has been able to include Bok Flip van der Merwe in his 27-man tour squad that departed for New Zealand yesterday.

Van der Merwe has missed out on the last two games due to a hamstring complaint, but should be fit to face the Hurricanes this weekend.

According to Brenden Nel and Supersport, though, Victor Matfield will not be a part of the official playing staff on this tour. The big lock, who only last week captained the side against the Chiefs, will not play on tour as part of the originally agreed management program but will still make the trip as lineout and attack coach. It doesn’t take a genius to work out that the Bulls are using this as a cunning way to slip an extra player into their tour party, while having a ready-made substitute available should injury strike.

In addition to the 23 who played against the Chiefs (with van der Merwe taking Matfield’s spot), the Bulls have added four further players to the tour squad: hooker Bandise Maku, loose forward Vleis Engelbrecht, scrumhalf Rudy Paige and centre William Small-Smith.

Touring squad: Jurgen Visser, Akona Ndungane, Bjorn Basson, William Small-Smith, JJ Engelbrecht, Jan Serfontein, Ulrich Beyers, Jacques-Louis Potgieter, Handre Pollard, Francois Hougaard, Rudy Paige, Piet van Zyl, Dewald Potgieter, Jacques du Plessis, Deon Stegmann, Jono Ross, Jacques Engelbrecht, Flip van der Merwe, Paul Willemse, Grant Hattingh, Werner Kruger, Dean Greyling, Morne Mellett, Marcel van der Merwe, Bandise Maku , Bongi Mbonambi, Callie Visagie.
