Specman & Hendricks set to start for the Bulls against Lions at Loftus

New signings Rosko Specman and Cornal Hendricks will start on the wings for the Vodacom Bulls when they open their warm-up campaign for the Vodacom Super Rugby competition in a friendly match against the Emirates Lions in Pretoria on Saturday.

Specman concluded his sevens duties with the Blitzboks in December and Hendricks joined the Pretoria side a month earlier after medical clearance. They will add some attacking punch to the team named by Head Coach, Pote Human, for this opening match, starting at 15h00 on the Loftus B field.

Another newcomer in the set-up is Marco Jansen van Vuren, who last year played for the Emirates Lions before a short stint with the SA Rugby Sevens Academy, while Muller Uys will also start. Uys, a former Junior Springbok, arrived from DHL Western Province, where he played age group rugby last year.

“It is a long season, with no June window to interrupt the proceedings, so it will be important to have all available players fit and ready when needed,” says Human.

“A number of the guys starting this weekend will have the opportunity to show why they should be in the squad. We are all eager to see how the new guys do, but also to get the season going.”

The Vodacom Bulls Starting Team:

Earll Dowrie, Cornal Hendricks, Franco Naude, JT Jackson, Rosko Specman, Manie Libbok, Marco Jansen van Vuren, Muller Uys, Thembelani Bholi, Ruan Steenkamp. Eli Snyman, Ruan Nortje, Dayan van der Westhuizen, Corniel Els, Simphiwe Matanzima.

The Vodacom Bulls Finishing Team:

Johan Grobbelaar, Matthys Basson, Conrad van Vuuren, Tim Agaba, Nic de Jager, Ivan van Zyl, Tinus de Beer, Jay-Cee Nel, Jade Stighling, Divan Rossouw.
