Blue Bulls keep stars fresh for Allianz Park
The Blue Bulls are holding back their big guns for next Saturday’s Sanlam Challenge showdown against Saracens at Allianz Park.
The Pretoria team fielded essentially a second team for their match against the Cheetahs this weekend, keeping the likes of Matfield, Hougaard, Serfontein and Pollard fresh for the main event in London. The Blue Bulls fly north on Wednesday night.
Coach Frans Ludeke said: “We know the Sharks and Western Province have lost to Saracens, so our players are not lacking in motivation. Everybody in South Africa knows what Saracens have achieved in recent years – winning the Premiership league for the past two years and reaching the European Cup final . For us, any win at Allianz Park would be a great win.”
