Additional reporting from the Blue Bulls official website.
Handré Pollard will return at flyhalf and captain for Friday’s Super Rugby clash against the Highlanders at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin.
The pivot missed the last two matches on tour due to injury, but returns in a much-changed backline from the one that drew against the Blues a week ago.
Divan Rossouw (for Warrick Gelant) and Dylan Sage (for Rosko Specman) will join Pollard (replacing Manie Libbok) in the starting line-up. Sage will move to outside centre, while Johnny Kotze moves one out in place of the injured Specman.
