Van Velze in for Potgieter


The Vodacom Blue Bulls’ coach Frans Ludeke has only made one change to his starting XV by bringing in Gerrit-Jan van Velze for the injured Dewald Potgieter.

Van Velze will start in the loose trio alongside Dries van Schalkwyk and Jacques Burger with Deon Stegmann as well as Pedrie Wannenburg on the bench.

Ludeke said at the weekly press conference which was held at Loftus on Tuesday that Stegmann and Wannenburg are both coming back from rather serious injuries and therefore the wisest decision will be to play them off the bench.

“I would like to use them as impact players and it was part of their rehabilitation plan that they will be on the bench, but I would like to stress that Gerrit-Jan thoroughly deserves his place in the run-on team after a splendid display against the Sharks.”

Francois Hougaard’s groin injury is still keeping him on the sideline and therefore Ruan Snyman will be Heini Adams’ adjutant and Burton Francis is also back in the mix following a three week conditioning plan.

Stephan Dippenaar will be the outside back reserve at the side of Snyman and Francis after he was found not guilty at his disciplinary hearing that took place in Pretoria on Tuesday morning.

Dippenaar was cited following an incident in the Blue Bulls under 21 match against the Sharks but the judicial committee found that he did nothing wrong.

Please note that Friday’s match against the Boland will not be televised and therefore we would like to invite all our supporters to come and join us at Loftus Versfeld.

Vodacom Blue Bulls: 15 Tiger Mangweni; 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 Jaco Pretorius, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Marius Delport; 10 Francois Brummer, 9 Heini Adams; 8 Dries van Schalkwyk, 7 Gerrit-Jan van Velze, 6 Jacques Burger, 5 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Derick Kuün (c), 1 Gurthrö Steenkamp. Reserves: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Frik Kirsten, 18 Pedrie Wannenburg, 19 Deon Stegmann, 20 Ruan Snyman, 21 Burton Francis, 22 Stephan Dippenaar.

13. dankie vir die info

14. Pedrie is 'n groot verbetering vir slot reserwe. Hy het natuurlik slot gespeel in die 2003 Curriebeker finaal toe die Bulle die Haai so groot pakslae op Loftus gegee het.
Bekommerd oor Jaco Engels. Jammer hy speel nie haker nie. Gedink wat sal hy in die skrum maak met Flip en Wilhelm agter hom met Werner Guthro langs hom.
Daai vaste 5 sal seermaak. Sit Derek op flank vir die Curriebeker.
En maak dat hy nog steeds in die lynstane ingooi.
As die bokke terugkom sit Derek terug op haker met Jaco Engels op reserwe.
Dit kan baie help vir volgende jaar se Super 14.

15. Bandise Maku het tot in sy O-19 jaar stut gespeel. Dus vervul hy alreeds die rol soos voorgestel word met Jaco Engels. Of Jaco op 29-jarige ouderdom na haker wil verskuif is egter te betwyfel.
