Vodacom Blou Bulle kies Snyman
August 21, 2013
Die Vodacom Blou Bulle span wat Saterdag op Loftus Versfeld teen die MTN Goue Leeus in Absa se Curriebekerreeks speel, toon twee veranderinge van die een wat GWK-Griekwas verlede naweek getroef het.

Ruan Snyman is die nuwe skrumskakel in die plek van Rudy Paige (wat bank toe skuif) en op haker begin Bongi Mbonambi in die beseerde Callie Visagie se plek.

Die voormalige Vodacom Blou Bulle haker, Bandise Maku, wat laas in 2010 vir die span uitgedraf het, is die plaasvervanger in Mbonambi se plek. Nog ‘n nuweling op die plaasvervangerbank is Jacques Engelbrecht wat die beseerde Jean Cook vervang.

Engelbrecht, ‘n voormalige SWD Arende, Kings en Springbok Sewes-speler, sal sy debuut vir die Vodacom Blou Bulle in die kompetisie maak as hy speelkans kry.

Die span wat teen die Leeus speel is:

Jürgen Visser, Sampie Mastriet, Ulrich Beyers, Francois Venter, Travis Ismaiel, Tony Jantjies, Ruan Snyman, Jono Ross (k), Jacques du Plessis, Wiaan Liebenberg, Grant Hattingh, Paul Willemse, Werner Kruger, Mbongeni Mbonambi, Morné Mellett. Plaasvervangers: Bandise Maku, Marcel van der Merwe, Wilhelm Steenkamp, Jacques Engelbrecht, Rudy Paige, Waylon Murray, Clayton Blommetjies.

•Blue Bulls calls on Snyman

The Vodacom Blue Bulls team to face the MTN Golden Lions in Pretoria on Saturday sees two changes from the one that beat GWK-Griquas at Loftus Versfeld last weekend.

At scrumhalf, Ruan Snyman will earn his first start, swopping places with Rudy Paige (who drops to the bench) and Bongi Mbonambi who will start at hooker in place of the injured Callie Visagie.

Former Vodacom Blue Bulls hooker Bandise Maku, who left Pretoria to play for the Lions and later the Southern Kings, returns to the team on the bench, whilst Jacques Engelbrecht will earn his first start for his new team should he be called upon from the bench.

Engelbrecht, a former SWD Eagles, Kings and Springbok Sevens player, comes in for injured Jean Cook.

The team to play the Lions is:

Jürgen Visser, Sampie Mastriet, Ulrich Beyers, Francois Venter, Travis Ismaiel, Tony Jantjies, Ruan Snyman, Jono Ross (c), Jacques du Plessis, Wiaan Liebenberg, Grant Hattingh, Paul Willemse, Werner Kruger, Mbongeni Mbonambi, Morné Mellett. Replacements: Bandise Maku, Marcel van der Merwe, Wilhelm Steenkamp, Jacques Engelbrecht, Rudy Paige, Waylon Murray, Clayton Blommetjies.
