Oh Flip, he’s back! (Bulls Team Sheet)

Flip van der Merwe is back for the Bulls this weekend, taking the place of veteran Victor Matfield, who continues with the team in a coaching capacity but is unlikely to play.

Other changes include a rare start for Jacques “Vleis” Engelbrecht. “Vleis is a very good player, he’s playing well in the Vodacom Cup side at the moment. We’ve worked on a lot of things, and it is part of the rotational system and it’s a long season. Jacques du Plessis will move onto the bench, and we’ll use him as an impact player. It’s a pity that Jono (Ross) misses out on this one, he’s a good player and every week he adds a lot and plays his heart out. He has a big workrate around him, but we’re confident the loosies we’ve put out for this game,” coach Frans Ludeke said.

Vodacom Bulls team: Jurgen Visser, Akona Ndungane, JJ Engelbrecht, Jan Serfontein, Bjorn Basson, Jacques-Louis Potgieter, Francois Hougaard, Jacques Engelbrecht, Dewald Potgieter, Deon Stegmann, Flip van der Merwe (capt), Paul Willemse, Werner Kruger, Callie Visagie, Dean Greyling.
Reserves: Bongi Mbonambi, Marcel van der Merwe, Morne Mellett, Grant Hattingh, Jacques du Plessis, Piet van Zyl, Handre Pollard, Ulrich Beyers.
