TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Bulls Director of Rugby Jake White has made several changes to the team that will face Ospreys in the United Rugby Championship Round 15 match at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

The Bulls will be eager to bounce back following their 22-27 defeat to URC title-holders Munster last weekend.

Bulls mentor Jake White will field a very different-looking team for this Saturday’s outing.

Nizaam Carr returns to the starting XV. He is accompanied by Cameron Hanekom at No.8 and Elrich Louw at flank. Louw will retain the captain’s armband.

In the second row, Reinhardt Ludwig replaces JF van Heerden.

The other changes are in the backline, where Springbok Canan Moodie moves from outside centre to the right wing. David Kriel will don the No.13 jersey and partners with Harold Voster.

Chris Smith is at flyhalf in the place of Johan Goosen, who copped a three-week ban after last weekend’s red card.
