Cape Town - Boland Cavaliers coach Brent Janse van Rensburg has made a few changes to his team for their Currie Cup clash against the Blue Bulls in Wellington on Friday (15:00 kick-off).

After starting at fullback in the 46-22 loss to Griquas two weeks ago, Namibian international Theuns Kotze moves back to No 10 in place of Adriaan Carelse, who takes Kotze’s position at the back.

In midfield, Gerrit van Wyk moves into the No 13 jersey in place of Robbie Louw, while Logan Basson replaces Sergio Torrens on the wing.

Up front, Zandre Jordaan replaces Jacques Engelbrecht at No 8, with the latter moving to blindside flank in place of Shaun McDonald, who shifts to the second row. Keenan Cronje completes the back row.

In the front row, Basil short returns to the front row in place of Enoch Mnyaka.
