The bulls support several URC stars for the Currie Cup clash against Griquas

The Bulls have selected a strong team to face Griquas in a crucial Currie Cup match at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

Tshwane’s team sits at the top of the Currie Cup standings and will maintain their leading status on the roster ahead of the undefeated Cheetahs and Sharks.

The Bulls are expecting a strong challenge from the Griquas, who will look to overturn the result of the previous game between the two teams when the men in blue took an emphatic 27-53 away win in Kimberley in March.

The Bulls have strengthened their arsenal with staff who have been a constant player for the team in the United Rugby Championship.

“We have no doubt that this weekend we will have a very difficult match against a Griquas team that has shown what they are capable of. They are always a difficult team to play against and we are sure they will freak out this weekend, ”said Bulls rugby director Jake White before the match.

“We are trying to have a good balance in this team, as our selection shows. We have given some time to some of the guys who have played at URC, while others will continue to add value to the Currie Cup. “

The match will start at 5pm.

Bulls: Canan Moodie, Stravino Jacobs, Cornal Hendricks, Harold Vorster, Madosh Tambwe, Chris Smith, Embrose Papier, WJ Steenkamp, ​​Cyle Brink, Arno Botha, Reinhardt Ludwig, Walt Steenkamp, ​​Robert Hunt, Jan-Hendrik Wessels, Lizo Gqoboka.
