Hard-running fullback Jacques Rossouw is fit again and has been included in the Vodacom Blue Bulls Under-21 side to play Sharks Under-21 in Durban on Friday.
Rossouw takes over from Jesse Kriel, who moves down to captain the Under-19's in the only change to the backs, whilst coach Nollis Marais also tweaked his loose trio from the side that beat Toyota Free State in the Absa Under-21 Provincial Championship last weekend.
With Clyde Davids out injured, Nardus van der Walt moves to No 8 and Roelof Smit moves from the bench to the No 7 jersey. This opens up an opportunity for Ferdi Horn on the bench.
Damian van Wyk is also fit again and back on the bench, replacing Malcolm Theo as utility back.
The team to play Sharks Under-21 at 15h00 on Friday is: Jacques Rossouw, Jade Stiglingh, Dries Swanepoel, Burger Odendaal, Jermaine Kleinsmith, Handre Pollard, Rudi van Rooyen, Nardus van der Walt, Roelof Smit, Shaun Adendorff, Dennis Visser, Jannes Kirsten, Hencus van Wyk, Jaco Visagie (c), Andrew Beerwinkel. Replacements: Jason Thomas, Justin Forwood, Irne Herbst, Ferdi Horn, Kefentse Mahlo, Christopher Bosch, Damian van Wyk.
