Bulls pick their strongest
Posted on Thursday, May 12, 2005 - 15:16
The Vodacom Bulls have picked their strongest team for their do-or-die clash against the Stormers at Securicor Loftus on Saturday.

Bakkies Botha and Gary Botha are back into the starting line-up as the only two changes from the team that beat the Sharks last week.

Due to all the stomach bug victims, a final reserve bench will only be named tomorrow.

Depending on the results of other matches, the Bulls may already have qualified for the playoffs by the time the take to the field against the Stormers, or need a victory to prevent them from slipping to seventh. Coach Heyneke Meyer has, however, given the assurance that these permutations will be the furthest thing from the Bulls minds as they focus all their attention on beating the Stormers.

The team:
Johan Roets; Akona Ndungane, JP Nel, Ettienne Botha, Bryan Habana; Morné Steyn, Fourie du Preez; Anton Leonard, Pedrie Wannenburg, Jacques Cronje, Victor Matfield, Bakkies Botha, Richard Bands, Gary Botha, Kees Lensing.
