Bulls forced to tweak pack for Force
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
