    Bulls surprise with Libbok at flyhalf

    2018-05-17 08:54

    Cape Town - Bulls coach John Mitchell has named his team for Saturday’s Super Rugby encounter against the Jaguares in Buenos Aires.

    Former Junior Springbok Manie Libbok has been named at flyhalf, with regular pivot Handre Pollard moving to inside centre in place of the injured Burger Odendaal.

    Pollard takes over the captaincy from Odendaal.

    Up front, Mitchell was also forced to make changes after injuries to lock Lood de Jager and prop Lizo Gqoboka.

    As such, Trevor Nyakane moves back to loosehead prop, with Conraad van Vuuren the new tighthead.

    Jason Jenkins moves from flank to lock to take De Jager’s spot, with Thembelani Bholi coming into the loose trio.

    Saturday's clash is scheduled for 23:40 (SA time).
