Bulls bring in a Stormer for Stormers

Wed, 02 May 2018 11:48

TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: The Bulls have changed up their team for the big north-south derby, when they face the Stormers in a Super Rugby Round 12 match.

Andre Warner will start at scrumhalf for the Bulls on Saturday, in this crucial clash at Newlands.

Cape Town-born Warner comes in for Ivan van Zyl, who will play off the bench.
 
The scrumhalf started the first four matches of the competition, before picking up an injury and has made some solid contributions off the bench since - including a try against the Rebels two weeks ago.

A number of player have been bracketed in a provisional team - the final selection depended on late fitness tests.

Adriaan Strauss will extend his South African record for Super Rugby matches to 153.
