First Bulls start for Bongi

The Vodacom Bulls appear to have finally lost patience with hooker Callie Visagie, as the former Lion is nowhere to be seen for this week’s game against the Force in Perth. Bongi Mbonambi earns a first run-on cap, with springbok Bandise Maku providing cover off the wood.

Victor Matfield is reinstated as captain and will no doubt wear that armband for the foreseeable future, with Flip van der Merwe landing a 3-week suspension for punching against the Waratahs. Paul Willemse replaces the suspended lock in the number 4 jersey in the only other change to the starting pack. Wimpie van der Walt makes a first appearance in the match 23, as one of two loose forwards on the bench.

A slew of changes at the back see Francois Hougaard replace injured Piet van Zyl at scrumhalf, with fit-again Akona Ndungane replacing the former at wing. Jurgen Visser, who was a late casualty ahead of the Waratahs game, is back at fullback for Ulrich Beyers, who drops to the bench to replace William Small-Smith.

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 Grant Hattingh, 7 Jacques du Plessis, 6 Jono Ross, 5 Victor Matfield (captain), 4 Paul Willemse, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Bongi Mbonambi, 1 Dean Greyling
Substitutes: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Mornè Mellett, 18 Wimpie van der Walt, 19 Jacques Engelbrecht, 20 Rudy Paige, 21 Handrè Pollard, 22 Ulrich Beyers, 23 Marcel van der Merwe,
