Bulls confirm 14 changes for Stormers match

6:39 am on 13 May 2010

The Bulls rugby coach Frans Ludeke insists he hasn't compromised the Super 14 competition by making 14 changes to his lineup for their final round robin match this weekend against the Stormers.

The defending champions locked up the top qualifying spot last weekend, and after naming a second string side last night, Ludeke said he had to rest some of his senior players who've played every match this season, and he's assured his critics the Bulls will be going to Newlands to be competitive.

The Waratahs chief executive Jim L'Estrange had threatened to protest to SANZAR, if the Bulls made wholesale changes.
