Nyakane, Ismaiel and Smit return to Bulls to face Sharks as Mitchell manages his player
Bulls’ coach John Mitchell says the three changes to his team to face the Sharks in their Super Rugby derby at Loftus Versfeld on tomorrow have been made with consideration to player management. Mitchell has selected Travis Ismaiel on the wing ahead of Divan Rossouw while Thembelani Bholi will start from the bench with Roelof Smit being chosen to start at flank and Marco van Staden moving to number eight in place of Bholi. Another change sees Trevor Nyakane return to start at tighthead prop after missing out on last weekend’s game because of injury. Mitchell says it is important to manage the load his players carry through the campaign.
