Johannesburg - After captaining his Varsity Cup team to the final this year, Tuks flyhalf Wesley Dunlop will earn his first start at Absa Currie Cup level when the Leopards host the Pumas in Potchefstroom on Friday.

Last week Dunlop was one of the stars in his team's tremendous fightback that saw them draw level with the Lions - with 10 minutes remaining in the match - after they had conceded five first-half tries.

Dunlop replaced regular skipper Clayton Durand in the run-on team named on Wednesday, and eighthman Morne Hanekom was set to lead the side in search of an illusive victory.

Another change to the team that suffered a 53-36 loss to the Lions in Johannesburg last week saw hooker Gavin Williamson promoted to the starting line-up after Stoffel Bezuidenhout picked up an injury in training.

Teams:

Leopards: 15 George Tossel, 14 Danie Dames, 13 Charl Weidemann, 12 Joubert Engelbrecht, 11 Wynand Willis, 10 Wesley Dunlop, 9 Whestley Moolman, 8 Morn Hanekom (captain), 7 MB Lusaseni, 6 Philip de Wet, 5 Brendon Snyman, 4 Roan van Heerden, 3 Stefan Bezuidenhout, 2 Gavin Williamson, 1 BG Uys.

Substitutes: 16 Brend Botha, 17 Marius Fourie, 18 Christo van Niekerk, 19 Spanner Pretorius, 20 Theo van Wyk, 21 Walter Venter, 22 Clayton Durand.

Pumas:
