VIDEO: Bulls change flyhalves again
TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Flyhalf Manie Libbok will start at flyhalf for the Blue Bulls in Pretoria on Saturday when they take on Griquas in Round Four of the Currie Cup.
Libbok played off the bench last weekend in Nelspruit, where the Blue Bulls edged the Pumas to claim their first win of the competition and coach Pote Human kept faith in those returning victorious from the Mbombela Stadium.
Libbok swops jerseys with Marnitz Boshoff, who will finish the game while Stedman Gans is the only new face in the matchday squad.
Gans has been fully integrated since his return from the BlitzBoks last month and will play off the bench against the Kimberley side, the same team he made his debut against two seasons ago.
He comes in for Jade Stighling.
