Cape Town - Coach Franco Smith has been forced to make changes to his Varsity Cup Dream Team which will tackle the Baby Boks in Stellenbosch.
UP-Tuks players Dan Kriel and Jaco Visagie are not available for selection, and had to be replaced.
Kriel’s spot at inside centre has been taken by Johan Deysel who will now link up with his NWU-Pukke team-mate Rowayne Beukman in midfield.
Visagie was due to start as a replacement, and experienced UFS-Shimlas hooker Elandre Hugget will now take his spot on the bench.
Smith, who took Shimlas to their first ever Varsity Cup title, was named coach of the Dream Team, with Hendro Scholtz and David Manual named as his assistants.
The once off fixture will be played at Danie Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch on April 21 and broadcast live on SuperSport at 18:30.
