Vodacom WP coach Allister Coetzee on Wednesday announced his team to take on the Vodacom Blue Bulls at Newlands on Saturday 14 August 2010. Kick-off is at 17h05.

He was forced to make two changes to the backline due to the unavailability of Springbok duo Gio Aplon and Juan de Jongh. They have rejoined the Springbok squad for the remainder of the Tri-Nations competition.

Veteran winger Fabian Juries is back after losing his place at right wing to Aplon, while Tim Whitehead also makes a return at outside centre in place of De Jongh, who was Man of the Match against Griquas last Saturday.

Coetzee has bracketed Springbok Francois Louw and the promising Nick Koster at number seven flank. Wicus Blaauw is also back in the starting line-up at loosehead prop in place of JD Moller.

The Vodacom WP u19 and u21's take on their Blue Bulls counterparts in two curtain raiser games at 13h00 and 14h45 respectively.

Tickets to Saturday's game are selling fast, with limited seating and standing room tickets still available.

Tickets are available from Computicket, Shoprite Checkers and Checkers Hyperstores nationwide as well as the Newlands Ticket office. Tickets can also be purchased via the Computicket Credit Card booking line on 083 915 8000 or on www.computicket.com
