Greyling terug vir Vodacom Bulls
April 25, 2013
Dean Greyling maak Saterdag sy terugkeer tot Vodacom Super Rugby as hy vir die Vodacom Bulls teen die Waratahs op Loftus Versfeld uitdraf.

Die loskopstut het die eerste deel van die seisoen weens ‘n stresfraktuur in sy voet gemis.

Die verandering is een van vier wat afrigter Frans Ludeke gemaak het aan die beginspan wat die Southern Kings geklop het, met die terugkeer na fiksheid van gereelde staatmakers die groot rede.

Drieëvraat Bjorn Basson is terug op linkervleuel in Lionel Mapoe se plek en Dewald Potgieter speel in Deon Stegmann se plek as kantman.

Greyling back for Vodacom Bulls

Dean Greyling will make his first start for the Vodacom Bulls this season, when the Pretoria-based side takes on the Waratahs in a Vodacom Super Rugby clash at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

Greyling missed the first part of the season due to a stress fracture in his foot and played his way back to match fitness with some stellar performances in the Vodacom Blue Bulls side in the last couple of weeks.

He replaces Mornè Mellett, who has started in all eight matches this season.

The change at prop is one of four made by Vodacom Bulls coach Frans Ludeke from the side that outplayed the Southern Kings, with the return of fit-again players the main criteria in selection.

Try-scoring ace Bjorn Basson will start on the left wing ahead of Lionel Mapoe and Dewald Potgieter will take over from Deon Stegmann in the fetcher role. Werner Kruger replaces injured Frik Kirsten at tighthead.

The team to play the Waratahs (with Super Rugby caps) is: Jurgen Visser (5), Akona Ndungane (88), JJ Engelbrecht (24), Jan Serfontein (6), Bjorn Basson (46), Mornè Steyn (114), Jano Vermaak (96), Pierre Spies (97, k), Arno Botha (17), Dewald Potgieter (58), Juandrè Kruger (25), Flip van der Merwe (54), Werner Kruger ((83), Chiliboy Ralepelle (60), Dean Greyling (30). Replacements: Willie Wepener (59), Frik Kirsten (23), Wilhelm Steenkamp (52), Jacques Potgieter (18), Francois Hougaard (48), Louis Fouchè (17), Lionel Mapoe (35).
