Pienaar kies dieselfde span
October 17, 2012
Die Vodacom Blou Bulle-afrigter, Pine Pienaar, het dieselfde 22-tal wat die Goue Leeus verlede naweek geklop het, weer gekies om Saterdag in die Absa Curriebeker-halfeindstryd teen die Sharks in Durban te speel.

Dit is die eerste keer hierdie seisoen dat die afrigter daardie luukse het en hy voel dit behoort aan die span broodnodige momentum vir hul belangrikste wedstryd van die seisoen te gee.

Die veelsydige agterspeler, Francois Hougaard, sal dus weer van die bank af speel.

Vodacom Blue Bulls coach Pine Pienaar made no changes to his side that beat the MTN Lions last weekend for their Absa Currie Cup semi-finals clash against The Sharks in Durban.

It is the first time this season that Pienaar could name the same 22 on consecutive weekends and the coach feels that this could help them carry some momentum into Saturday’s showdown.

This means that Bok utility back Francois Hougaard will again play off the bench.

The team is: Zane Kirchner, Akona Ndungane, JJ Engelbrecht, Francois Venter, Bjorn Basson, Mornè Steyn, Jano Vermaak, Arno Botha, Jacques Potgieter, Dewald Potgieter (c), Juandrè Kruger, Flip van der Merwe, Werner Kruger, Willie Wepener, Mornè Mellett. Replacements: Chiliboy Ralepelle, Frik Kirsten, Wilhelm Steenkamp, CJ Stander, Francois Hougaard, Louis Fouchè, Dean Greyling.
