Scrumhalf Jano Vermaak is set make his 100th Super Rugby appearance this weekend as he was named in the Bulls match day squad to play the Sharks in Durban.

The former Cats (11 caps) and Lions (62 caps) player will represent the Bulls for the 28th time and become South Africa's 22nd centurion at that level.

Vermaak has been named on the Bulls replacements bench but should come on in what is anticipated to be a very bruising affair.

Bulls coach, Frans Ludeke, who earlier in the day signed a three year extension as Head Coach, made some minor changes to the team what outplayed the Highlanders last weekend of which two are in the backline.

Bjorn Basson returns to the left wing berth and swop places with Lionel Mapoe, who will move to the bench.

It will also be a milestone of sorts for Bjorn Basson, with the try-scoring ace playing in his 50th match of Super Rugby, having also represented the Cheetahs nine times.

The most experienced Super Rugby midfielder in the country, Wynand Olivier, is also back at 12, with Jan Serfontein moving to the bench.

Both Serfontein and replacement flyhalf Louis Fouche have niggles and a final call on who will play in Durban will be made later.

Ludeke also refreshed his front row with Werner Kruger and Dean Greyling returning in place of Frik Kirsten and Morne Mellett.

Willie Wepener also rotates with Callie Visagie on the bench.


Jurgen Visser , Akona Ndungane, J J Engelbrecht , Wynand Olivier , Bjorn Basson , Morne Steyn, Francois Hougaard, Pierre Spies (c), Dewald Potgieter , Deon Stegmann, Juandre Kruger , Flip van der Merwe, Werner Kruger (86), Chiliboy Ralepelle, Dean Greyling.

Replacements: Willie Wepener , Frik Kirsten, Grant Hattingh , Arno Botha, Jano Vermaak, Louis Fouche /Jan Serfontein , Lionel Mapoe.
