Pretoria - Blue Bulls coach Pote Human has named his team for Saturday's Currie Cup semi-final against Western Province in Cape Town.

Human has made a few changes to the team that lost 34-7 in the weather-affected match against Western Province in Pretoria last weekend.

In the backline, a fit-again Duncan Mathews replaces Jamba Ulengo at right wing, while Dylan Sage comes into the midfield in place of Franco Naude, with Johnny Kotze moving from outside to inside centre.

Up front, Springbok prop Trevor Nyakane moves from tighthead to loosehead in place of the injured Matthys Basson. Dayan van der Westhuizen takes Nyakane's place at tighthead.

Kick-off for Saturday’s match at Newlands is scheduled for 17:00.
