The Vodacom Blue Bulls have made three changes to the side that trounced the Sharks in Durban.
The most notable of those is the exclusion of Pierre Spies. The 21-year-old, who Pote Human hoped would fill the void left by Pedrie Wannenburg at eighthman, has failed to shake a calf strain.
Human is also being cautious with Derick Hougaard, whose participation in training has been stifled by a stiff groin muscle. He will watch from the bench but the Bulls lose little in the equally prolific MornÃ© Steyn.
In the pack, Derick KuÃ¼n will play at No 8, while Adriaan Fondse replaces Rossouw in the second row, to accommodate the Springbok’s shift to openside flank.
