50 up for Gelant while Tuitavake set for Bulls debut against Jaguares

The high flying fullback made his debut against the Stormers back in 2016 and has scored 15 tries for the Pretoria based side.

CAPE TOWN - Warrick Gelant will run out for his 50th Super Rugby cap against Jaguares when the Bulls host the Argentine team at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

The high flying fullback made his debut against the Stormers back in 2016 and has scored 15 tries for the Pretoria based side.

Regular captain Burger Odendaal has been ruled out with an ankle injury, which makes space for Tongan centre Nafi Tuitavake to make his Bulls debut.

The fleet-footed Tuitavake is no stranger to Super Rugby as he amassed 20 caps for the Crusaders after making his tournament debut in 2014 before plying his trade in Europe for several seasons.

There is one change and two positional changes amongst the forwards with Marco van Staden packing down at openside flank while Jeandré Rudolph and Josh Strauss shift around the loose trio with Strauss slotting in at blindside flank and Rudolph donning the No.8 jumper.

The backline is tweaked slightly with Embrose Papier earning his first start of the season and Johnny Kotze moving to inside centre to make space for Tuitavake. The bench remains unchanged.
