Potgieter named in Bulls team

2011-08-31 12:53

Pretoria - Dewald Potgieter has been included in the Blue Bulls team to face the Sharks in an Absa Currie Cup clash in Pretoria on Saturday.

Potgieter recovered from a broken nose that sidelined him from the Bulls' last two fixtures, and he replaced Arno Botha in the team named on Wednesday.

Team management said Botha would revert to the role of impact player off the bench.

Bulls coach Pine Pienaar also recalled Bjorn Basson and Juandre Kruger, who missed last week's clash against the Leopards due to flu and an ankle injury respectively.

Francois Brummer was brought back into the fray in the only change to the bench.

Teams

Blue Bulls: 15 Jurgen Visser, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 Zane Kirchner, 12 Wynand Olivier, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Louis Fouch, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 CJ Stander, 7 Dewald 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 Francois Venter

Sharks:

    This team is getting a familiar feel to it.

      Oukoos - 2011-08-31 13:34

      Bulldozer, agree. 6th in the S15. Currently 6th on the CC log

      jk - 2011-08-31 13:36

      Bulldozer - 2011-08-31 14:02

      You can't even spell losing, idiot.

      jk - 2011-08-31 14:03

      BLOODY AGENT - 2011-08-31 14:10

      Second is the same as losing,

      jk - 2011-08-31 14:14

      thats what oaks in 6th spot say...

      René Müller - 2011-08-31 14:19

      I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm quite relieved not seeing Gerhard vd Heevers' name. Sad, this guy has serious speed, but is somehow going to sleep at kick-off!

      jk - 2011-08-31 14:29

      rene, that means he just doesnt have it... and look at the picture of potgieter, he watching another 3 points go over against him...

      trublu - 2011-08-31 14:31

      @Rene.... Vd Heever cant tackle to save his life...he needs get more aggro if he wants to play for bulls again.

      WPBLIKSEM - 2011-08-31 14:59

      Sharks by 15+ !!! Sharks ALL the way to the BANK!!!! WP jou LEKKA DENG!!

      jk - 2011-08-31 15:01

      and my beloved wp by 8!!!!! PROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVINCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Marius Swart - 2011-08-31 20:25

      @Rene.Dit is regtig jammer hy verdedig so pateties op die oomblik want hy het spoed en kan baie beteken vir bulle op die vlak.

      René Müller - 2011-08-31 20:32

      @Marius, stem - hy moet wakker skrik of onder 21 gaan speel. Hy het 2 deur swak verdediging in die Leopards game afgestaan. Ek is baie teleurgesteld in die outjie. Gelukkig het ons nog vir Basson!

  • gmain - 2011-08-31 13:06

    Go Sharks.....

  • Friksepappa - 2011-08-31 13:06

    Sterkte manne!! Dit gaan rof wees want die Haaie is seergemaak deur laasweek se loesing...

      BlueRaven - 2011-08-31 13:29

      Jy kan dit weer se! Good luck for the game. Go Bulls!

      jk - 2011-08-31 13:37

      bulls need much more than only luck...

      Bulldozer - 2011-08-31 14:00

      Jk, you need much more than charity.

      jk - 2011-08-31 14:05

      dozer- you use to give me arun for my money, but your comments just so weak.... you in a downward spiral? im making this blog my own i suppose...PROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVINCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      BlueRaven - 2011-08-31 14:33

      Talk about delusions of grandeur! You really are a piece of work jk, why don't you slip into something more comfortable...like a coma.

      jk - 2011-08-31 14:38

      raven- you totally outdone youself here my boy... stick to the topic at hand please...

  • Oukoos - 2011-08-31 13:07

    Goed om hom terug te sien. 'n Eerlike en harde speler vir wie ek respek het. Hy sal beslis 'n groot impak maak. Of dit genoeg sal wees om die Sharks te wen - ek is nie so seker nie, maar die Blou Bulle kan Saterdag dalk net vriend en vyand verras

      Kleinboet - 2011-08-31 13:40

      Ek dink nie so nie, Oukoos! Die Sharks is gekwes en sal weer 'n slag goed speel, soos wat hulle in staat is om te doen. Die Sharks se probleem die afgelope jaar of twee is wisselvalligheid en daar is niks soos 'n verloor om hulle aan te spoor nie. @ Anneleen en @ Shark-Chic, I will cross my fingers for your team this weekend, even though it will not necessarily suit WP!

      Oukoos - 2011-08-31 13:56

      Kleinboet, ek het gesê 'dalk'. Wat waar is, dit sal 'n verrassing wees as die Blou Bulle wen

  • BLOODY AGENT - 2011-08-31 13:34

    Bulle gaan nou weer begin opwaarts beweeg,Lions sien julle in die Final

      jk - 2011-08-31 13:39

      LOL!!!!!!!! DIS DIE GROOTSTE KLOM BOLLIE WAT EK AL OOIT HEHOOR HET, EVEN AL WEN DIE BULLE AL HULLE GAMES, IS DIT NOG STEEDS TE MIN!!!!!

      Oukoos - 2011-08-31 13:43

      Bloody Agent, Dewald Potgieter is 'n goeie speler, maar julle het nog 14 ander spelers nodig om opwaarts te beweeg. Waar's hulle? Die 6de plek op die log is nie juis 'n vleiende getuigskrif vir julle beskikbare talent nie

      jk - 2011-08-31 13:49

      oukoos- hy sal nie verstaan nie, jy weet mos..

      BlueRaven - 2011-08-31 14:05

      You go Agent, I like the way you think!

  • jk - 2011-08-31 13:42

    bulle het te min tusen die bene om iets te breik... sharks by 8, wp by 9, france by 8

      BlueRaven - 2011-08-31 14:01

      en jy het te min tussen die ore

      jk - 2011-08-31 14:07

      RAVEN- YOU ALSO ON A DOWNWARD SPIRAL IN YOUR LIFE LIKE THE OTHER BULLE ON HERE???

      BlueRaven - 2011-08-31 14:20

      jk you don't have a life sweetie, or do you think making stupid comments on a sport site equates a life? Ps. I won't be so confident about beating the Griquas in Kimberley since you could not even manage a win at Newlands.

      jk - 2011-08-31 14:39

      raven- WELCOME TO THE CLUB WHO GOT NO LIFE, APART FROM THIS BLOG...

      BlueRaven - 2011-08-31 14:52

      You and me will never belong to the same "club" jk...

      jk - 2011-08-31 14:54

      raven- jys heeltemal reg- my kelvin grove club sal jou nooit invat nie...jy kan dit elk geval nie bekostig nie...

      BlueRaven - 2011-08-31 15:16

      Ai hier gaan ons al weer... bla bla bla, my pa het soveel geld, ek ry n Amarok... boring! Se my het jou ouers altyd net geld in jou hand gestop in plaas daarvan om jou liefde en aandag te gee? Want dit verduidelik baie dinge... poor little rich boy... shame. Ek voel amper jammer vir jou.

      jk - 2011-08-31 15:59

      liefde & aandag!!bla bla

  • PietSkiet - 2011-08-31 14:18

      jk - 2011-08-31 14:41

      Blouste-Blou - 2011-08-31 17:16

      As jy nie belangstel nie, wat de joos maak jy by 'n berig wat lui "Potgieter named in Bulls team"

  • vallemj@24.com - 2011-08-31 14:29

    Oukoos no buddy it was 7th in the Super 15.

      Fasie - 2011-08-31 17:57

      @vallemj But won it 3 out of 4 years prior to this year. How many has the Stormers taken?

      Prowler - 2011-09-01 03:17

      @Fasie. Ag shame, OK, we'll acknowledge that the Flou Nulle once was a good team that won something. Although they are useless at the moment, we'll give you that past glory. It's all you've got.

  • Paul - 2011-08-31 17:04

    JK your hatred for the Bulls is undeniable, but please leave your child like behaviour at school. If you have any decent intelligent rugby comments you are more than welcome to share. Hoping you can be respectful to others!

      Fasie - 2011-08-31 17:55

      Walk in the park for the Bulls. On their way to their millionth CC trophy

      Prowler - 2011-09-01 03:31

      @Hasie. It would have been only their 24th. If they were able to reach the final and win that. But that won't happen. So the Flou Nulle will only have 23 titles after this year's final. Compare that to WP's 32.

      Damian@bulls - 2011-09-01 07:28

      @Prowder Trek asseblief so 10 currie cups af van 32 af, daai jare was die currie beker elke 4 of 5 jaar gespeel , terwyl daar vier of 5 spanne was, daar was nie eers 'n finaal gewees nie. Julle bestaan in elke geval baie langer as die bulle. julle rekord is eientelik baie swak in vergelyking met die bulle sin!!!! maar moet my nie glo nie gaan soek dit self na my vriend sterkte met jou span die naweek rugby groete

      Prowler - 2011-09-01 07:43

      @Damian. It's pathetic that for more than 50 years Pretoria was not even good enough to have a team that can play in the Currie Cup. They had to play with Transvaal. And even then Transvaal only won 2 cups.

      Sme - 2011-09-01 08:50

      Prowler, when were those titles won by the WP? In the friggin dark ages bwaaaaahahahahahahahahaha. Same as every year, they look promising only to falter near the end...........

      Damian@bulls - 2011-09-01 09:23

      @Prowler once again thats is no the case , in that years there was only 4 or 5 unions, we were so good instead we decided to go on our own, our record proofs it today. cheers.

      Oukoos - 2011-09-01 10:12

      @Paul, jy is seker 'n Blou Bul ondersteuner? Of is jy te skaam om te verklaar watter span jy ondersteun?

  • Sme - 2011-09-01 08:40

    jk this is specially for you!!! One day a ufo was hovering above Cape Town, the aliens then decided to do a test on humans to test their brain functions, they noticed a fish seller on the docks who was calling Snoek, lekka vas Snoek". They then decided to remove a 1/4 of his brain, he then called "lekka vas Snoek" Not satisfied they removed another 1/4 of his brain, leaving only 1/2 functioning, he then called "vas Snoek". still not satisfied they removed the rest of his brain. he then called "PROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVIIIIIIIIINCE"

      jk - 2011-09-01 08:52

      sme- the spelling of vas in wrong, its actually vars...

      Sme - 2011-09-01 08:56

      ai jk that is the accent you idiot, or do you think Lekker is spelt Lekka? as I said, no brain Proooooooovince hahahaha

      Koos - 2011-09-01 09:21

      @ sme, jy moet prentjies teken sodat jk kan verstaan.

  • pappavyf - 2011-09-01 14:07

    Sharks to beat the Bulls by 8. The team moral is at an all time low, one player will not make a difference. WP and Shark final

      Fasie - 2011-09-01 20:45

      @pappasnyf WP??? HA HA HA Like the last decade?

  • Carl Muller - 2011-09-02 16:46
