Reigning champions the Blue Bulls have called up fullback Adilio Coetzee to replace the injured Tiger Mangweni ahead of the Vodacom Cup semifinals against the Leopards at Loftus on Saturday at 2pm.

Mangweni, a former Stormers and Cheetahs player, suffered a broken cheekbone during the quarterfinal tie against Western Province at home at the weekend. The Bulls won 36-16.

Tim Dlulane, team manager, said yesterday that with Mangweni sidelined, they had lost a hard-working winger .

But the former Springbok flanker is optimistic that the equally courageous Coetzee will easily fill in the gap left in the backline.

The promising Coetzee's performance in the early rounds of the domestic competition was outstanding.

He is expected to form a good combination with the experienced John Mametsa.

In their last meeting on April 3, the Bulls and the Leopards drew 22-all in an absorbing game in Potchefstroom in North West.

No doubt sparks will fly when both giants troop onto the field in a match that can go either way.

Dlulane added that the boys will be inspired by the presence of their vociferous supporters to secure a berth in the final.

On the same day, the Sharks XV welcome the Griquas from Kimberley in the second semifinals in Durban at noon.
