Bulls coach Heyneke Meyer has made a number of changes to the team that lost to the Blues last week and must now face the Chiefs.

Springbok Tim Dlulane makes his first start for the Bulls this year. He has played for the Bulls but has only come on as replacement and this is the only change in the pack.

The back line sees a few changes in the back line most notably in the midfield. Rudi Coetzee & Wynand Olivier make up

The biggest change is at 10 where Morn’ Steyn also makes his first start for the Bulls this year and comes in for the injured Derick Hougaard. Steyn will be paired with No.9, Fourie du Preez how comes in for Heini Adams.

On the whole the team is not as big in weight as last week but this is compensated for in pace and experience.
