More injuries for the Blue Bulls
Posted on Tuesday, April 11, 2006 - 14:49
Wessel Roux © Touchline PhotoThe Vodacom Blue Bulls side have fought back to a second position on the log, but with injuries to their captain, Derick KuŁn, as well as Adriaan Fondse, the team shows a total of six changes and a positional shift for the match against the Elephants in Port Elizabeth on Thursday.

More than a full side is currently unavailable through injuries or call-ups to the Super 14 and the youngsters are showing some great character, as well as proving the depth in the union with some good victories after an initial shaky period.

Good news, however, is the return of Frikkie Welsh after his suspension. His inclusion means that Riaan van der Bergh moves to inside centre at the expense of Jacques Louis Potgieter. Jaco van der Westhuizenís departure for Australia means that Len Olivier is back at flyhalf and Marius Delport also gets a start in the starting lineup.

Up front, Wilhelm Steenkamp replaces Fondse, while Athi Mtya and Bandise Maku have both been included to start their first matches for the Vodacom Cup side.

The Vodacom Cup side finds itself in the same position as the Bulls, as the opponents who are vying for playoff positions still have to play each other. Their destiny is therefore in their own hands.

B/Bulls Team:

Hennie Daniller, Marius Delport, Frikkie Welsh, Riaan van der Bergh, Trompie Nontshinga, Len Olivier, Niel Powell (v/c), Emile Verster, Johan Wasserman (c), Athi Mtya, Cliff Milton, Wilhelm Steenkamp, Ruan Vermeulen, Kobus van der Walt, Bandise Maku

Replacements: Harry Vermaas, Werner Kruger, Anthonie Gronum, Gerhard Human, Joey Mongalo, Jacques-Louis Potgieter, Luvuyo Mhlobiso.
