Bulls v Western Force - Super Rugby match preview
Last Updated: 28/02/13 8:29am
Sampie Mastriet will make his Super Rugby debut when the Bulls tackle the winless Western Force on Saturday.
The winger is one of three changes of personnel made by coach Frans Ludeke following the morale-boosting win over the Stormers.
Jacques Potgieter and Arno Botha also start after Dewald Potgieter and Deon Stegmann were ruled out through injury.
Mastriet's inclusion means Lionel Mapoe switches to the centres for the sidelined JJ Engelbrecht.
On the bench, Jean Cook is poised to make his Super Rugby debut while Jan Serfontein is also included.
