It is hard to imagine a Vodacom Bulls pack without Kruger, who has earned his reputation as one of the hardest working props in the competition.
The former Springbok player will hit rucks all day, cleaning out opponents and when needed, will take the ball into contact in order to create space for faster team mates.
Kruger will be in a battle with Frik Kirsten for a starting berth, but such is the attitude and versatility of the player that he will be contributing equally efficiently and effective whether he starts or plays off the bench.
