Bulls out to tame Stormers
The high-riding Bulls will be gunning for full points when they play the struggling Stormers in a Super 14 clash at Loftus tomorrow. Kick-off time is at 5pm.
The Bulls have won three out of three and are on top of the log with 14 points. They will be eager to keep their home record clean after beating the Blues 59-26 and the Reds 33-20 recently.
Coach Frans Ludeke has named Victor Matfield among his reserves while the young winger, Gerhard van den Heever comes in for Springbok Bryan Habana, who injured a hand. Van den Heever will be making his Super 14 debut.
Despite their poor start this season, the Stormers are playing good rugby and it is only a matter of time before they find their feet.
Under the tutelage of Rassie Erasmus, the Stormers will have to go broke if they hope to upset the Gauteng giants at home.
Some of the Stormers players likely to give the Bulls a torrid time include Luke Watson and Percy Montgomery.
Today: Chiefs v Western Force (Hamilton); Waratahs v Reds (Sydney).
Tomorrow: Hurricanes v Cheetahs (Wellingon); Blues v Sharks (Auckland); Highlanders v Crusaders (Dunedin); Bulls v Stormers (Loftus).
