Pretoria - Blue Bulls executive of rugby John Mitchell has named his team for Saturday’s Currie Cup semi-final against the Sharks in Durban.

Mitchell has named unchanged starting XV from the one which beat the Pumas 52-32 at Loftus Versfeld last weekend.

There is however some doubt over the fitness of lock Aston Fortuin, who has been bracketed with Jannes Kirsten in the starting line-up.

Fortuin sprained his ankle against the Pumas and will be given as much time as possible to recover.

Kick-off for Saturday’s clash at Kings Park is scheduled for 14:30.
