Serfontein, Hougaard fit for Brumbies clash
July 24, 2013
Vodacom Bulls coach Frans Ludeke included fit-again Jan Serfontein and Francois Hougaard in his starting team and former Junior Springbok lock Paul Willemse on the bench for his side’s Vodacom Super Rugby semifinal match against the Brumbies at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

All three players recovered from the injuries that kept them out of the last league fixture against the DHL Stormers in Cape Town two weeks ago.

Serfontein replaces Francois Venter in the midfield and Hougaard’s inclusion comes at the expense of Jano Vermaak, who will move to the bench, where he replaces Rudy Paige. Willemse replaces Jacques du Plessis, who made his debut in Cape Town.

The Vodacom Bulls team (with Super Rugby caps) is:

Zane Kirchner (81), Akona Ndungane (95), JJ Engelbrecht (32), Jan Serfontein (11), Bjorn Basson ((54), Mornè Steyn (122), Francois Hougaard ((55), Dewald Potgieter (66, c), Jacques Potgieter (22), Deon Stegmann (74), Grant Hattingh (20), Flip van der Merwe (62), Werner Kruger (91), Chiliboy Ralepelle (68), Dean Greyling (37). Replacements: Callie Visagie (22), Frik Kirsten (30), Mornè Mellett (11), Paul Willemse (5), Jono Ross (3), Jano Vermaak (103), Jürgen Visser (11).
