The Bulls have named their team to face the Brumbies on Friday night. Following their 30-18 win over the Cheetahs which made them third on the log thanks to Habana’s last minute try the Bulls will now face the Brumbies who triumphed over fellow Australian newcomers The Western Force.

Derick Hougaard has been named in the side after suffering a rib injury and Bulls coach Heyneke Meyer has named Danie Thiart at tighthead over Andries Human.

The Bulls are known for their powerful forwards and Meyer is keen to show that his backline is just as powerful. Earlier in the week he was quick to point out that his team scored the third most tried in the Super 12 and the most in the Currie Cup. 

Meyer feels that his backline is underestimated and wants his backline to prove themselves against an experienced Brumbie backline.

The Brumbies are currently fourth on the log.
