50 for Mametsa
Posted on Wednesday, August 17, 2005 - 15:09
John Mametsa © Touchline PhotoThe darling of Pretoria, John Mametsa, win make his 50th appearance for the Vodacom Blue Bulls at Securicor Loftus on Saturday when the Vodacom Blue Bulls take on the Cheetahs in the first round of the Top 8.

After a week where injuries were pandemic in the Blue Bulls’ kraal, there was some good news with the return of Ettienne Botha and Heinie Adams. Botha slots into his regular position at inside centre and Morné Steyn moves back to flyhalf.

Johan Roets lost the race against time, however, and Hennie Daniller will be the last line of defence for the second week running.

Amongst the forwards, Johan Wasserman has recovered from his light back spasm and along with Wessel Roux is the only change to the pack.

The Blue Bulls are still not up to full strength with regards to injuries, but this week the Currie Cup onslaught begins in all earnest and there will be no place to hide.

The team:

Hennie Daniller; John Mametsa, Wynand Olivier, Ettienne Botha, Gavin Passens; Morné Steyn, Heini Adams; Anton Leonard (k), Johan Wasserman, Ruan Vermeulen, Francois van Schouwenburg, Danie Rossouw, Richard Bands Danie Coetzee, Wessel Roux.


Kobus van der Walt, Andries Human, Lodie Britz, Adriaan Fondse, Danie van der Merwe, Derick Hougaard, Marius Delport.

Kickoff: 17:00

Curtain raiser: Blue Bulls Amateurs vs Natal Amateurs 14:50
