Youngsters get unleashed against Russians


The Vodacom Blue Bulls' coach Nico Serfontein has selected a mixture of club players and youngsters for Thursday's warm-up match against Russia which will be played at Loftus C.

The encounter against the Russians will be an ideal opportunity for Serfontein and his fellow selectors to consider the selected players' worth and to assess what the youngsters are capable of against senior opposition.

School leavers such as Jaco Oosthuizen and CJ Stander have been included in the starting XV, while club stars such as Ricus de Beer, Johan de Bruin, Devon Oosthuizen, Chris Crous, Tian Fick and Johan Pienaar will get the opportunity of a lifetime when they play for the Blue Bulls against international opposition.

The match kicks off at 17:00 on Loftus C and there will be no entrance free.

Vodacom Blue Bulls: TC Losper; Ricus de Beer, Jaco Oosthuizen, Simphiwe Mtimkulu, Chris Botha; Marnitz Boshoff, Christiaan van den Berg; Johan de Bruin, CJ Stander, Ntokozo Mashele, Devon Oosthuizen, Wouter Moore, Frik Kirsten, Bertie Powell, Peet Vorster.

4. Van die ouens is vir my onbekend maar as Serfontein hulle kies is hulle goed want hy is,volgens my baie beskeie opinie seker die mees onderskatte afrigter in SA. Waterkloof ryg darem top senters uit!

6. Dag se ouens. Ek wil nou ni hoes of skinder nie maar ek is heel opgewonde dat die rugby weer begin binnekort. Dis moeilik om iets oor n naweek te doen sonder dat daar rugby aan is.
Hoop en vertrou groot dat die Blou masjien ons sal trots maak weer hierdie jaar.
Blou Bul Groete. :)

10. Goeidag Bloubul Bloggers,

Ek hou regtig van die manier hoe Nico Serfontein se kop werk. Hierdie span en hierdie geleentheid wat geskep is wys my die man is ernstig om talent te soek én dat hy werklik talent kan raaksien.

Hoop daar is 'n paar van die manne in hierdie span wat die kans wat hulle kry met albei hande aangryp. Ek het net een beswaar. Frik Kirsten hoort nie in hierdie span nie. Hy moes 'n seker keuse in die Super 14 groep gewees het!

Op 'n ligter noot wil ek 'n toevoeging maak tot een inkrywing: "Johan de Bruin: De Bruin captained TUT in 2008 and was one of the stalwarts of the Blue Bulls Amateur team..." Ja, en toe koop Tukkies hom (amateurspeler?) met 'n kontrak van R10 000 per maand om vanjaar vir hulle te speel! (Net soos Bertie Powell ook 'n vaste salaris van Polisie gaan ontvang, nadat hulle hom by Naka Bulle afgerokkel het...

Terloops, weet iemand wat gaan aan by Naka Bulle? Ek hoor amper hulle hele eerstespan van laasjaar het gedros na ander klubs!

Die voormalige Springbokstut Christo Bezuidenhout gaan vanjaar Centurion se voorspelers afrig.

Bezuidenhout, het in die laat 90’s vir Centurion gespeel en was in 2003 deel van die Bokke se wêreldbekergroep.

Hy het vir die Pumas gespeel toe Rudolf Straeuli hom vir die eerste keer in sy groep ingesluit het en op 9 Augustus 2003 sy Bokbuiging teen die All Blacks in Dunedin gemaak.

Daarna het hy in nog drie toetse gespeel waarvan die laaste in die wêreldbeker-kwarteindstryd teen Nieu-Seeland in Melbourne op 8 November 2003 was.

Bezuidenhout sal Arno Grobbelaar, wat die hoofafrigter is, se regterhand wees en spelers wat belangstel om vanjaar vir Centurion te speel, kan Tian Grobler by 083 2601 530.

HOZA S14!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stem met jou saam oor Frik Kirsten. In sy plek is Ruan Vermeulen toe gekies.
