Vodacom Blue Bulls Under-21 welcome back Snyman for Free State clash

The Vodacom Blue Bulls Under-21 team welcomes back lock Eli Snyman for their SA Rugby Under-21 provincial championship clash against the Free State in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

Snyman did duty for the Vodacom Blue Bulls in the Currie Cup last week, but with a number of senior players returning to fitness, has been released to join the junior side. He replaces Ruben van Heerden, one of two changes in the pack of the side that drew 29-29 against DHL Western Province in the season’s opener last weekend. In the other change forced upon coach Pote Human, Stefaan Grundlingh replaces the injured Matthys Basson at tighthead.

On the bench, Gavin van den Berg comes in for Grundlingh.

The home side opened their account with a 43-26 win over the Leopards. Kick-off is at 14h15.

The team is: Divan Rossouw, Keanan van Wyk, Franco Naude, JT Jackson, Dewald Naude, Tinus de Beer, Ivan van Zyl, Jsuanre Swanepoel, Abongile Nonkontwana (c), Marco van Staden, Eli Snyman, Aston Fortuin, Stefaan Grundlingh, Alandre van Rooyen, Njabulo Gumede. Replacements: Jan-Henning Campher, Gavin van den Berg, Sam Mitchell, Dean van der Westhuizen, Theo Maree, Kurt Webster, Adrian Maebane.
