Do or die for Bulls as Bok Kirchner returns
The Blue Bulls provisionally announced the return of Springbok fullback Zane Kirchner to their ranks for Friday’s Currie Cup clash against the Leopards in Pretoria.
Kirchner was the only returning Springbok available for selection.
His inclusion, however, was not set in stone as the Bulls could not get hold of Kirchner who was not yet back from New Zealand.
If he is not available for Friday’s match, Jurgen Visser who is returning from injury, will slot in at fullback.
Gerhard van den Heever, who covered in the last line against Griquas moves to the bench.
Blue Bulls team: Jurgen Visser/Zane Kirchner, Akona Ndungane, Wynand Olivier, Francois Venter, Bjorn Basson, Louis Fouché, Jano Vermaak, CJ Stander, Jacques Potgieter, Deon Stegmann, Juandré Kruger, Flip van der Merwe, Werner Kruger, Gary Botha (captain), Dean Greyling. Replacements: Willie Wepener, Frik Kirsten, Gerrit-Jan van Velze, Arno Botha, Dustin Jinka, Francois Brummer, Jurgen Visser / Gerhard van den Heever.
