    2016-04-14 10:08

    Cape Town - The Reds have made one change to their starting line-up as they prepare to face the Bulls in a Super Rugby clash in Pretoria on Saturday.

    The Queensland side recorded their first win of the season when they beat the defending champion Highlanders at home last weekend.

    Lock Ben Matwijow gets his first start of the season in place of Rob Simmons, who is ruled out with injury.

    There are also two changes to the bench, with lock Lukhan Tui and scrumhalf James Tuttle both set to make their debut should they make an appearance 

    Tui's inclusion follows Matwijow's promotion to the starting side, while Tuttle has replaced injured Scott Gale.

    Saturday’s clash at Loftus Versfeld is scheduled for 17:05.
