Bulls get some beef back for Reds

The Bulls take on the vastly-improved Reds in Brisbane on Saturday, before heading to New Zealand where they will face the Chiefs in Hamilton and the Crusaders in Christchurch.

The Bulls suffered no injuries in their 35-49 loss to the Lions at the weekend.

Additionally, lock Jason Jenkins (AC joint) and captain Burger Odendaal (rib) have recovered and will be in contention for selection this week.

Odendaal suffered the rib injury in the Round Two win over the Hurricanes and was replaced by Springbok flyhalf Handre Pollard in the No.12 jersey against the Lions.

Marnitz Boshoff started at flyhalf.

Springbok Warrick Gelant, who was also included in the 27-man touring squad, will add further depth to the Bulls backline resources.

Bulls squad:

Forwards: Pierre Schoeman, Lizo Gqoboka, Trevor Nyakane, Conraad  van Vuuren, Frans van Wyk, Jaco Visagie, Adriaan Strauss, Jason Jenkins, Rudolph Snyman, Lodewyk de Jager,  Roelof Smit, Marco van Staden, Thembelani Bholi, Hanro Liebenberg, Nic de Jager.

Backs: Andre Warner, Embrose Papier, Handre Pollard, Marnitz Boshoff, Manie Libbok, Burger Odendaal (captain), Jesse Kriel, Johnny Kotze, Travis Ismaiel, Divan Rossouw, Warrick Gelant, Duncan Matthews.
