Bulls director of rugby Jake White has opted for continuity after naming his starting line-up to tackle the Pumas in a preparation series clash at Mbombela Stadium on Tuesday.
Springbok Nizaam Carr continues his role as captain in an unchanged starting XV from the one which thumped the EP Elephants 87-10.
The bench has been shuffled to allow more game time with Nolan Pienaar, Bernard van der Linde, Clinton Swart, Henco Beukes, Willie Potgieter and Richard Kriel all set to get a run later in the game.
"The boys did well last week and the coaching management were impressed in how they kept to the plan, even when the game opened up," White said in a statement.
"It could have become a free-for-all once we got legroom on the scoreboard but we want to simulate in-competition scenarios to help us better prepare for upcoming competitions and I must commend Nizaam and his leadership group for keeping the players focused on the objectives and outcomes we wanted to achieve.
"This week will be no different and although the starting team hasn't changed much, there's a ton of new faces on the bench that want their boots on the field and to put their names forward. The last time we travelled to Nelspruit with a rather young and inexperienced team, we lost badly to a powerful and well-oiled Pumas bunch. I'm looking forward to seeing how this group has developed since then. We're excited to get to Nelspruit and play our brand of rugby," White concluded.
Kick-off is at 19:00 on Tuesday.
