PRETORIA – Loose forward Marco van Staden, who was released from the Springbok squad, will line up for the Blue Bulls in Friday’s Currie Cup clash against the Pumas at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.
In addition to Van Staden, Blue Bulls coach Pote Human has made one other change to his team, with Marnitz Boshoff replacing Manie Libbok at flyhalf.
The Blue Bulls lost to the Free State Cheetahs last weekend and Human is demanding improvement from his side.
“We are in trouble with no wins after two rounds, but so are the Pumas,” said the Blue Bulls coach.
“We were outplayed in both our defeats and, given that the match is on their home turf, the Pumas must be favourites.
