The British, Vermeulen, start against Stormers



2019-01-30 12:34

Pretoria – novices Schalk Brits and Duane Vermeulen will start for the Bulls when they take on Stormers in Super Rugby friendly at Cape Town Stadium on Sunday.

Duo, both former Stormers players, will also return to the South African franchising landscape after club shadows abroad.

Vermeulen will start at No. 8 with Jannes Kirsten and Paul Schoeman, who will be dealing with the Bulls for the first time after the Cheetahs.

Bulls coach Pote Human has named eight Springboks in his starting team, while the second, Embrose Papier completes the match to be played at the Cape Town stadium from the bench.

Johnny Kotze, who joined the team again after finishing with Ospreys in Wales, will also play from a bench in a team with many well-known faces.

Lood de Jager will be the lead party for the first time since the captain set for the season.

People feel the match will be an important first step for his party.

"There are new faces in the team, but Schalk and Duane are so experienced that they have come from the beginning, but it will be a question of how the combination will be done, whether they are testing against a quality opposition like the Stormers and gaining an idea of ​​where we are. I am satisfied with the experience and quality of the group, but you still need to have joint matches so you can go, and a weekend match in Cape Town will do exactly that, "said Human.

The first first double hero superhero at Cape Town will feature all four Super Rugby franchise teams on the same day in one place.

The best players in South Africa wear their new jersey inspired by Marvel's Spider-Man, Thor, Black Panther and Captain America.

Lions dress up in a familiar Spider-Man suit; Sharks receive the appearance of a black panther; The Stormers will try to knock their enemies in the colors of Thor; and the Bulls will protect all the attacks that have pushed their way as Captain America.

Jerseys will be worn exclusively in most South African derby. Teams will wear their usual jerseys for matches against international opposition.

The Stormers in the Bulls match begins at 16:15 on Sunday.
