    Bulls forced to tweak pack for Force

    2016-04-28 08:30

    Cape Town - The Bulls have been forced into a late change ahead of their Super Rugby match against the Force in Perth on Friday (kick-off 13:05 SA time).

    Lock Jason Jenkins has had to withdraw from the match-day squad for this match due to a pectoral muscle injury.

    This has prompted coach Nollis Marais to start Marvin Orie at No 5 lock, with RG Snyman - who was scheduled to start in that position - moving to No 4.

    It will be Orie’s first Super Rugby start for the Bulls.

    In the back row, Jannes Kirsten drops to the bench, with Arno Botha, who was not included in the original match-day 23, taking his place at openside flank.

    Jannes Kirsten is subsequently named amongst the replacements.
