Pretoria - Bulls coach Frans Ludeke has named his team to tackle Saracens in a friendly clash in London on Saturday.

Returning Springboks Pierre Spies, Handre Pollard and Marcel van der Merwe will all get game time but only from the bench, as Ludeke opts to ease the trio back into action.

Flank Deon Stegmann will captain the Bulls at Allianz Park on Saturday (kick-off 17:00 SA time). The game will be televised live on SuperSport.

The men from Pretoria start their Super Rugby campaign at home to the Stormers on February 14.
