Trio back to bolster Bulls

2012-05-15 09:09

Log leaders the Bulls have recalled experienced midfielder Wynand

Olivier, loose forward Dewald Potgieter and prop Dean Greyling for Saturday’s

Super Rugby clash against the Highlanders in Dunedin.

Olivier replaces Francois Venter and Potgieter comes in for injured

Deon Stegmann from the side that beat the Waratahs in Sydney last week, having

both been declared fit for the match.

Greyling returns to the side after he missed the Waratahs clash due

to personal reasons and replaces Dawie Steyn.

Potgieter joined the squad on Sunday after recovering from a

hamstring strain and Olivier was rested against the Waratahs in order to recover

from bruised ribs.

Flyhalf Morne Steyn will become the sixth player from the franchise

to turn out in 100 Super Rugby matches.

Bulls team: Zane Kirchner, Akona Ndungane, Johann Sadie, Wynand

Olivier, Bjorn Basson, Morne Steyn, Francois Hougaard, Pierre Spies, CJ Stander,

Dewald Potgieter, Juandré Kruger, Flip van der Merwe, Werner Kruger, Chiliboy

Ralepelle, Dean Greyling.

Replacements: Willie Wepener, Rayno Gerber, Wilhelm

Steenkamp, Arno Botha, Jano Vermaak, Louis Fouche, JJ Engelbrecht.
