The Perkins brothers, Jeff and George, will once again combine when the Valke travel to Tzaneen to meet the Blue Bulls in a Vodacom Cup rugby match on Saturday.

Jeff has been moved back to flyhalf and his brother will play next to him. Two other Perkins brothers, Warren and Reg, donned the Valke jersey last year. Warren has been selected to represent the Lions against Griquas on Friday night and Reg is playing in France.

Jeff's superior boot and defensive game gave him the nod at flyhalf and the young Gido Horn, who scored the only try against the Leopards, moves down to the bench.

l Peter Grant will start at centre for the Vodacom Stormers when they meet the Crusaders in a Vodacom Super 14 rugby match in Christchurch on Saturday at 8.35am (SA time).

Gcobani Bobo moves to the wing to make place for Grant. Captain Jean De Villiers will play his 50th game for the Stormers. - Sapa
