Pretoria - Blue Bulls coach Pine Pienaar made two changes to his starting team to play the Golden Lions in a Currie Cup match at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.
Flank Warwick Tecklenburg will replace the injured Deon Stegmann in the only forced change to the side that lost to Western Province last weekend.
