Cape Town - Bulls coach Pote Human has rotated his scrumhalves for Saturday's crucial Super Rugby clash against the Sharks in Durban.

The change sees Embrose Papier come in for Ivan van Zyl, who takes his place on the bench. 

The other change to the starting line-up sees Eli Snyman return to the second row. 

The Bulls are coming off the back of a disastrous 56-20 home loss to the Chiefs this past weekend and they will be desperate to return to winning ways. 

Both sides have won three and lost two in Super Rugby 2019 so far, but it was the Bulls who emerged as comfortable 37-14 winners when the sides met at Loftus earlier this month. 

Kick-off on Saturday is at 15:05.
