The Pumas beefed up their pack for Friday evening’s SuperSport Challenge semi-final in the Mbombela Stadium against the Sharks XV.
Lock Stefan Willemse shifts to the side of the scrum to replace the injured Hilton Lobberts and Le Roux Roets adds some physicality to the side.
De-Jay Terblanche, who will set a new Puma record of 184 games should he gets a run, has been moved to the bench with Simon Westraadt getting a start.
This weekend it’s winger Ruwellyn Isbell turn to set a milestone when he takes the field for the 50th time in a Puma-jersey.
The Pumas’ wise men has also opted for Justin van Staden at fullback and big Henko Marais at inside centre.
Captain Hennie Skorbinski therefor shift to theoutside centre channel.
