JOHANNESBURG - Top of the log Bulls take on second placed Cheetahs on Saturday and will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the South African Super Ruby conference.

Bulls coach Frans Ludeke is confident the Bulls won't be disrupted by the upcoming international break.

Three weeks of intense Springbok action could prove costly, especially on the injury front.

Ludeke said they've made provisions for the Bok break.

"We feel much more prepared. We know what almost happened last year, that's why we use the squad system. We're smart about how we train and when we train, as well as the volume and intensity."

Bulls captain Pierre Spies is adamant that his side isn't looking ahead at to the play-off just yet.

"We're losing focus on what we need to be focused on. We live week-to-week and that can be quite the emotional rollercoaster, but that's the way it is. You can't really plan further and you can't really pick games."
