White reveals extended Bulls squad for crunch midweek game
SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT: Bulls Director of Rugby, Jake White, has named an extended squad in preparation for the Currie Cup clash against the Lions at Loftus Versfeld on Wednesday.
The larger than normal group is mainly due to the fact that the team is still awaiting a few COVID-19 test results.
The final matchday squad will be trimmed and finalised as soon as possible.
“It’s been an interesting and challenging season to say the least, with the past two weeks probably being our most testing yet. We haven’t had a lot of time together following the isolation protocols, which doesn’t make it ideal going into a crunch game like this one,” White explained.
“Having said that, we’re just excited to be able to play again and get our campaign back on track.”
Bulls extended matchday squad: Lizo Gqoboka, Schalk Erasmus, Trevor Nyakane, Jan Uys, Ruan Nortje, Marco van Staden, Elrigh Louw, Duane Vermeulen, Embrose Papier, Chris Smith, Stravino Jacobs, Cornal Hendricks, Marnus Potgieter, Jay-Cee Nel, David Kriel, Johan Grobbelaar, Jacques van Rooyen, Marcel van der Merwe, Walt Steenkamp, Arno Botha, Tim Agaba, Ivan van Zyl, Morne Steyn, Keagan Johannes, David Kellerman, Jade Stighling, Jan-Hendrik Wessels, Joe van Zyl.
