Pretoria – Bulls coach Frans Ludeke has kept the Bulls side unchanged for Friday's crunch Super Rugby match against the Sharks in Durban.

Ludeke said team selection was straightforward this week as the Bulls showed against the Cheetahs that they were up to the task and were in form.

“Momentum is a very important factor at this stage of the competition and it is something we have now,” said Ludeke.

Hooker Chiliboy Rallepele will run out in his 50th Super Rugby match for the Bulls, while Willhelm Steenkamp could also play in his 50th Super game.

Bulls team: Zane Kirchner, Akona Ndungane, JJ Engelbrecht, Wynand Olivier, Bjorn Basson, Morne Steyn, Francois Hougaard, Pierre Spies (captain), Jacques Potgieter, Dewald Potgieter, Juandre Kruger, Flip van der Merwe, Werner Kruger, Chiliboy Ralepelle, Dean Greyling.

Replacements: Willie Wepener, Frik Kirsten, Wilhelm Steenkamp, CJ Stander, Jano Vermaak, Louis Fouche, Francois Venter.– Sapa
