Four Boks back for Blue Bulls
Posted on Tuesday, October 04, 2005 - 12:38
The Vodacom Blue Bulls have made four changes to their side for the clash with the Leopards in Rustenburg on Friday, with the Springboks Bryan Habana, Victor Matfield, Pedrie Wannenburg and Wessel Roux back in the staring line-up.

Habana replaces the injured Akona Ndungane, who sprained an ankle against the Griquas. He should, however, be ready to do battle in the semi-finals and it will be interesting to see which of Habana, Ndungane or John Mametsa crack the nod in the coming weeks.

Wessel Roux, who plays most of his rugby at loose head, replaces the tight head, Andries Human. Blue Bulls coach Heyneke Meyer recently noted that there is a lack of depth at tight head, especially as Richard Bands’ recover is not as speedy as was hoped. Roux will be eager to show that he can slot into this position with ease.

Pedrie Wannenburg has recovered from his ankle injury and replaces Johan Wasserman in the starting line-up. Wassie has been given a week to recover from all his niggles, which means that Tim Dlulane retains his spot on the bench. Victor Matfield was given a break last week, but on Friday, the march to the playoffs begins in all earnest.

The team: Johan Roets; John Mametsa, JP Nel, Wynand Olivier, Bryan Habana; Morné Steyn, Fourie du Preez; Anton Leonard (K), Pedrie Wannenburg, Jacques Cronje, Victor Matfield, Bakkies Botha, Wessel Roux, Gary Botha, Kees Lensing. Plaasvervangers: Danie Coetzee, Andries Human, Danie Rossouw, Tim Dlulane, Heini Adams, Derick Hougaard, Riaan van der Bergh.
