Pretoria - The Bulls have made a late change to their starting line-up ahead of their clash against the Crusaders on Saturday.

Hanro Liebenberg, who was due to start at No 8, has picked up a hamstring strain and he will be replaced by Renaldo Bothma in the starting line-up. 

Bothma was not initially in the match-day squad, but he comes straight in for Liebenberg while Jannes Kirsten is still the loose forward cover. 

Bothma has played just two matches for the Bulls this season, both of those as a substitute. 

The Crusaders arrive at Loftus as the only undefeated side left in the competition, while the Bulls have won three from eight. 

Kick-off on Saturday is at 17:15.
