New front row for Bulls
New front row for BullsSHARE
The prop missed last weekend's win over Griquas due to injury, but has been restored to the starting team to contest the Blue Bulls last Currie Cup fixture of the season and will face the team he first represented in 2008.
Adriaanse replaces Martin Dreyer, who drops to the bench, with Jon-Roy Jenkinson missing the trip to Cape Town.
Marais also changed the rest of his front row. Bandise Maku and Jaco Visagie rotates again and Lizo Gqoboka comes in for Pierre Schoeman as part of their rotational policy.
In an enforced change at the back, Bjorn Basson replaces Travis Ismaiel, who is nursing a groin. Divan Rossouw comes in for Basson on the bench.
Blue Bulls coach Nollis Marais urged his side to hit the ground running in Wellington.
Hanro Liebenberg will again lead the team from the base of the scrum.
