Burger Odendaal has withdrawn due to injury

Bulls Super rugby head coach John Mitchell has named a 26 man squad that will travel to Buenos Aires to play the Jaguares on Saturday.

The squad includes two players that have not featured in the tournament this season, with Edgar Marutlulle and Matthys Basson added to the squad.

Marutlulle has 31 caps to his name already though, while Basson could make a first appearance for the Bulls if he is named in the match day squad.

Regular captain Burger Odendaal, was also withdrawn due to a rib injury, and was replaced by JT Jackson, with Handre Pollard taking over the captaincy.

Mitchell has also opted for an extra prop, hooker and scrumhalf.

“We are very aware of the importance of this trip. We will be facing a team playing with massive confidence and having their best run in the competition, so it will be a massive task to beat them at home. That said, we have set ourselves some targets this year and winning in Buenos Aires will take us a step closer to achieving those. So, we know what is at stake,” Mitchell said.
