Hurricanes beef up scrums for Bulls

The Hurricanes camp has been hit by a stomach bug which has affected several members of the management team and is threatening to spread throughout the players.

Hooker Andrew Hore has been hit by the bug and this has coach Colin Cooper doing a daily check on his players.

This weeks match against the Bulls has an added incentive for Cooper as the Bulls are the only team that the Hurricanes have not beaten since he took over in 2003.

The Hurricanes have beefed up their front row to equal the Bulls forwards in the scrums using John Schwalger & Tim Fairbrother as props.

Gopperth will start on the bench again and will serve as an impact player as he did last week.
