Kruger to become Vodacom Bulls' latest centurion
April 08, 2014
Werner Kruger will play in his 100th Vodacom Super Rugby match for the Vodacom Bulls when the team takes on the Highlanders in Dunedin on Friday.

Vodacom Bulls coach Frans Ludeke named a new loose trio for the match, the second of the team's overseas trip, with Grant Hattingh, Jacques du Plessis and Jono Ross the preferred combination.

Ross and Du Plessis comes in for the injured Deon Stegmann and Dewald Potgieter, whilst Hattingh comes in for Jacques Engelbrecht, who moves to the bench.

Victor Matfield will also start at lock, with Paul Willemse dropping to the bench.

William Small-Smith is new on the bench, replacing Ulrich Beyers. If he takes to the field, Small-Smith will make his Super Rugby debut.

“It is great for Werner to play in his 100th match. He has been a real stalwart to the team since his debut in 2008 and has hardly put a foot wrong in all those seasons since. He is the first to acknowledge though that personal milestones only mean something if the team function successfully as a unit and that will be something we will strive to achieve,” Ludeke said.

Vodacom Bulls team: Jurgen Visser, Akona Ndungane, JJ Engelbrecht, Jan Serfontein, Bjorn Basson, Jacques-Louis Potgieter, Francois Hougaard, Grant Hattingh, Jacques du Plessis, Jono Ross, Victor Matfield, Flip van der Merwe (captain), Werner Kruger, Callie Visagie, Dean Greyling. Replacements: Bongi Mbonambi, Marcel van der Merwe, Morne Mellett, Paul Willemse, Jacques Engelbrecht, Piet van Zyl, Handré Pollard, William Small-Smith.
