Experienced flanker Arno Botha earns a starting berth in place of Cyle Brink, who sustained an injury in their last outing.

The Bulls bench has also been bolstered with the inclusion of Springboks Lizo Gqoboka, who will provide loosehead prop cover, and veteran flyhalf Morne Steyn.

Bulls director of rugby Jake White says he expects a tough challenge against a Springbok-laden Sharks side. 


“The Cell C Sharks have been an outstanding side throughout the campaign. They have shown their quality with all the Springboks in their squad, their depth with the great talent at their disposal and consistency which has seen them claim some good results.

“The fact that we have lost twice to them in the round robin stages shows the quality of their side. We are expecting a very tough battle. We have done what we can in our preparations for this weekend’s match. Now we will need to now implement and execute our plans well and play our best rugby if we want to overcome a quality outfit like the Cell C Sharks.”
