Pretoria - With so many changes this season, the Bulls are quite used to another change of scenery.

First it was the move to Orlando, and then the administration moved their offices out of Loftus Versfeld to make way for FIFA.

On Monday it was the Bulls team themselves which swopped their traditional Loftus training base for the nearby Groenkloof venue at the old Normaal Teachers Training College grounds, these days a satellite campus of Tuks.

The Bulls will again be in Orlando this weekend facing the Stormers in the final of the Vodacom Super 14 and are ready for the challenge they will face.

The team won’t train at Orlando this week before the game, mainly because it being used for the Bafana Bafana game on Monday night.

The other reason is that it is a logistical nightmare to get the team to Johannesburg with the current roadworks on the N1, with a simple training session meaning an extra three hours round trip on top of the two the team spends training.

For now Groenkloof will act as the team’s base until this weekend as FIFA have now taken control of the Loftus Versfeld stadium.

The Bulls will return to the stadium after the soccer spectacular, and will reclaim their base for the Absa Currie Cup in July.
