JJ Engelbrecht will start at wing when the Blue Bulls face WP at Newlands on Saturday.
Engelbrecht was on the bench during both Bok Tests against Argentina over the last fortnight, but was left out of the 28-man squad to tour Australasia. He now finds himself in the Bulls’ starting line-up for the clash in Cape Town, which will be his first Currie Cup appearance for the Pretoria union.
This sees Clayton Blommetjies shifted to fullback, while Jurgen Visser drops to the bench.
Blue Bulls – 15 Clayton Blommetjies, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Francois Venter, 11 JJ Engelbrecht, 10 Louis Fouché, 9 Ruan Snyman, 8 Dewald Potgieter (c), 7 CJ Stander, 6 Deon Stegmann, 5 Grant Hattingh, 4 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 Dawie Steyn.
Subs: 16 Robbie Coetzee, 17 Frik Kirsten, 18 Cornell Hess, 19 Warwick Tecklenburg, 20 Rudi Paige, 21 Lionel Cronje, 22 Jurgen Visser.
