Bulls unchanged for Pumas

2011-09-27 14:19

Pretoria - Blue Bulls coach Pine Pienaar has named an unchanged team to take on the Pumas in their Currie Cup match at Loftus Versfeld on Friday.

The Pretoria side clinched a narrow 21-18 victory over log leaders the Lions at Coca-Cola Park last week.

Flank Warwick Tecklenburg, who replaced Dewald Potgieter late last week, retained his starting position in the team named on Tuesday after Potgieter was ruled out for the remainder of the season with an ankle injury.

With his squad lying fifth in the standings, and locked in a battle for a place in the semi-finals, Pienaar admitted the Pumas would not make their job any easier.

"We had a huge fright against them in Nelspruit earlier in the season and only won 16-12," Pienaar said.

"They are a tough nut to crack, as they have showed by beating Griquas in Kimberley.

"We cannot look past this match. We need to run our own race and play our own game if we want to get there."

Teams:

Blue Bulls:

15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Bjorn Basson, 13 Wynand Olivier, 12 Francois Venter, 11 Gerhard van den Heever, 10 Louis Fouche, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 CJ Stander, 7 Jacques Potgieter, 6 Warwick Tecklenburg, 5 Juandre Kruger, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Gary Botha (captain), 1 Dean Greyling

Substitutes: 16 Willie Wepener, 17 Rossouw de Klerk, 18 Gerrit-Jan van Velze, 19 Arno Botha, 20 Dustin Jinka, 21 Francois Brummer, 22 Jurgen Visser

Pumas:

TBA

      CliffB what do you call a WP supporter at a final? ..... lost :)

      BlueRaven - 2011-09-27 14:58

      CliffB why do people tend to hate WP supporters on sight? Because it saves time.

      The WP rugby practice was delayed nearly two hours today after a player reported finding an unknown white powdery substance on the practice field. Head coach Alister Coetzee immediately suspended practice while police and federal investigators were called to investigate. After a complete analysis, investigating forensic experts determined that the white substance unknown to players was the try line. Practice was resumed after special agents decided the team was unlikely to encounter the substance again.

    I heard an interesting fact, Its peak season for foot in mouth disease in Cape town

  • BulvanBulle - 2011-09-27 15:28

    Dit lyk vir my na dieselfde span wat in die Curriebeker finaal gaan speel

      Danie Müller - 2011-09-27 17:06

      @BulvanBulle Ek stem saam, ek dink ook dit gaan die span wees en ek kan nie wag vir die game nie...!!!

    In picture, Pine Pienaar after a so-close-but-yet-so-far semi-final bid went down the sewerage pipe aka the apies rivier. 1L Brannas, 2L Coke, 3L Ford Cortina....the perfect remedy for a Pine Pienaar Blou Nul Currie Cup 2011 nightmare. Pine Pienaar has the perfect face for the Jerry Springer show.

      BulvanBulle - 2011-09-28 02:51

      @RaggedTooth He might be, but bottomline: WP=11YR TROPHY LESS= JOKERS OF WORLD RUGBY

  • Marius Swart - 2011-09-28 08:54

    My vraag is net.Waar is JK eweskielik want hy was dan so lief om iets oor die Bulle te se die hele seisoen.Die wiel draai baie vinnag in rugby so kom ons hou maar die voete op die grond tot ons seker is van Semi.

      Koos - 2011-09-28 09:39

      Hy het geen airtime en sy ma het hom gehok

      SA-FAN - 2011-09-28 15:55

      Sy frans manne het verloor teen die all blacks en sy wp het verloor teen die cheetahs so nou hou dan nou hy sal mos nie sy gesig wys nie :)

  • Northern Stormer - 2011-09-28 22:17

    Julle sien niks word geskryf oor die Pumas nie - maak julle maar reg vir n harde wedstryd tot die einde toe - hulle wil graag die 16-12 wreek !!!!! Net 4 punte as julle gelukkig is !!!!

  • Northern Stormer - 2011-09-28 22:45

    Weer 8 bokke in beginspan en een op bench - julle sal regtig beter punte verskille moet begin toon met so n gelaaide span Bulle - die naelskraap deurslip gaan nie meer help nie !!! Dit inaggenome is julle nie so wonderlik as wat julle glo nie - of hoe ?

  • Northern Stormer - 2011-09-30 06:44

    Okay ek het seker die laaste twee dae meer manne die moer in gemaak as wat jy op Floptus se Oos Pawiljoen kan inpas maar kom ons wees maar n bietjie realisties. Alle tekens dui daarop dat die Bulls die 4de plek op die log kan oorvat en alles dui daarop dat die WP gaan uitloose op die playoffs. Maar daar is nog n buitekans dat dit dalk nie so gaan uitdraai nie - al wat ek kan doen is te hoop en bid miracles gebeur van vanaand af en my WP spannetjie pluk n haas uit n hoed uit die volgende 3 weke. Sterkte vir al die spanne en mag die bestes bo uitkom. BulvanBulle/Koos/Blou/JohnnyBB en ook fake oukoos - geniet die naweek se rugby en sterkte met julle span !!! GO PROVINCE MAKE US PROUD !!!
