Moore back for Bulls clash
Cape Town - Brumbies head coach Stephen Larkham has made
four changes to his starting XV that will face the Bulls in a Super Rugby clash
in Canberra on Friday (11:45 SA time).
The two-time champions are currently tied for second placed
with the Waratahs, on 21 points, two points adrift surprise package side, the
Rebels in the Australian Conference.
Nigel Ah Wong and Robbie Coleman switch places, with the
former being named on the left wing.
Captain David Pocock (flank), Jarrad Butler (No 8) and Scott
Fardy (flank) are once again named as the loose forward combination.
Rory Arnold replaces Tom Staniforth in the second row, with
the latter being named amongst the replacements.
Wallaby captain Stephen Moore returns to the starting line-up
after picking up an injury in the 40-14 loss to the Crusaders two weeks ago.

in a new-look front row combination.
