Points machine and flyhalf Kobus Marais is back for the Vodacom Blue Bulls Under-19 team to play the Leopards in the semifinals of the Absa Under-19 provincial championships at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.
Marais has scored 94 points for the side in 6 matches and another 78 for the Under-21 team in six matches played for them.
The flyhalf was due to start in last weekend's 52-14 win over the Free State, but received a late call-up to the u.21 team.
The team will be looking for a 13th straight win in the competition. They have beaten the much-improved Leopards 48-12 and 61-14 in their league clashes.
The team to play the Leopards at 13h00 is: Jesse Kriel (c), Duncan Matthews, Daniel Kriel, Rohan Janse van Rensburg, Keagon Gordon, Kobus Marais, JP Smith, Chris Massyn, Jean Droste, Heinrich Viljoen, Nicolaas Janse van Rensburg, Justin Basson, Dayan van der Westhuizen, Corne Els, Pierre Schoeman. Replacements: Arno van Wyk, Wilco Louw, Ngwako Ralepelle, Carel Swart, Cameron Anthony, Leighton van Wyk, Ganfried May, Piet-Louw Strauss.
