Cape Town - Springbok midfielders Jesse Kriel and Jan Serfontein will combine for the first time as a centre pairing on Saturday when the Bulls play the Lions in a Super Rugby warm-up match in Polokwane.

Kriel has played at fullback in his 16 appearances for the Bulls so far, but made the Springbok outside centre berth his own later in the 2015 season, while Serfontein had injury issues during last year's campaign and only played in eight matches.

The youthful combination will play as the midfield paring for the first time, with Bulls coach Nollis Marais naming a number of young players in his match day squad.
