Bulls forced into late change
Pretoria - Utility back Ulrich Beyers will start at fullback for the Vodacom Bulls against the Waratahs on Saturday after Jurgen Visser was ruled out of the match due to a foot injury.
Kick-off is at 11:40 SA time.
Beyers, who came off the bench in both tour matches in New Zealand, played at centre on those occasions, but now get a first start of the season following the failed fitness test by Visser.
His only Vodacom Super Rugby start (at fullback) was against the Waratahs almost a year ago on April 27, 2013, when the Bulls defeated the visiting Australians 30-19 at Loftus Versfeld. Teams:Waratahs
