Blue Bulls hand out 5 debuts for Western Province clash (team sheet)

The Blue Bulls have picked an extremely young and inexperienced side to face the defending champions this weekend at Newlands. With a number of Bulls players either injured, rested or with the Boks, the men from Pretoria have been forced to pick a relatively unknown side – but a side that could contain many stars of the future.

On Debut:

  • Tony Jantjies (flyhalf)
  • Travis Ismaiel (wing)
  • Jono Ross (No 8)
  • Jacques du Plessis (flank)
  • and Wiaan Liebenberg (flank)

Jono Ross will captain the side on debut and new Springbok signing Waylon Murray has been included on the bench.

Blue Bulls – 15 Jürgen Visser, 14 Sampie Mastriet, 13 Ulrich Beyers, 12 Francois Venter, 11 Travis Ismaiel, 10 Tony Jantjies, 9 Rudy Paige, 8 Jono Ross (c), 7 Jacques du Plessis, 6 Wiaan Liebenberg, 5 Grant Hattingh, 4 Paul Willemse, 3 Frik Kirsten, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 Morné Mellet.
Subs: 16 Callie Visagie, 17 Marcell van der Merwe, 18 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 19 Jean Cook, 20 Ruan Snyman, 21 Waylon Murray, 22 Clayton Blommetjies.
