The Bulls entertain the Sharks at Loftus Versfeld in a Super Rugby Unlocked clash on Saturday evening. Neither side has made the most impressive of starts to the competition, making this a match which the home side will fancy winning.

Bulls Form & News


The Bulls kicked off their Super Rugby Unlocked season with a 30-23 victory over Griquas at Loftus. That win was followed by a 19-17 loss to the Cheetahs away in Bloemfontein. 

The Bulls could have claimed a draw in Bloemfontein, but they missed a late conversion.

The Bulls has struggled of late in all competitions, but the arrival of Jake White as Director of Rugby will no doubt give their fortunes a boost going forward.

Utility back Gio Aplon has been ruled out for the season with David Kriel likely to replace him. The Bulls have no other injury concerns at this stage.

Sharks Form & News


The Sharks did not play last weekend after taking down the Lions 19-16 in their Super Rugby Unlocked opener two weeks ago.

The last thing the Sharks would have wanted last weekend was a bye, given that there has been almost no rugby played over the last six months.

Any momentum they picked up from their opening weekend victory is likely to have been lost and this could well play in the Bulls' favour.

The Sharks welcome back a number of players this weekend. Sbu Nkosi is available for selection on the wing while hooker Kerron van Vuuren, wing Madosh Tambwe and flank James Venter are all available.

New signing Yaw Penxe is also available this week.
