Cape Town - Bulls coach Nollis Marais made three changes to his backline to play the Reds in a Vodacom Super Rugby match at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday. 

Bjorn Basson replaces Jamba Ulengo on the wing, Francois Brummer swops jerseys with Tian Schoeman at flyhalf, with the latter moving to the bench and Rudy Paige returns from injury. He replaces Piet van Zyl, who moves to the bench, with Ivan van Zyl dropping out from the team that won against the Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth last weekend. 

The pack remains unchanged, but Marais tweaked his bench. Lizo Gqoboka replaces Pierre Schoeman as back-up loosehead, Jaco Visagie comes in for Bandise Maku at hooker and Deon Stegmann takes over from Roelof Smit as the openside flanker. It will be Stegmann’s first appearance in the competition after he recovered from injury.
