URC Final | Kurt-Lee Arendse back for the Bulls

Bulls director of rugby Jake White has named his team for Saturday's URC final against Glasgow Warriors at Loftus Versfeld.

White has made two changes to the starting XV that beat Leinster 25-20 in last weekend's semi-finals.

Springbok speedster Kurt-Lee Arendse is back at left wing after missing the Leinster game due to a fractured cheekbone he suffered in the 30-23 quarter-final win over Benetton.

Arendse went under the knife but has made a remarkable recovery in time for the final.

The other change sees Bok fullback Willie le Roux miss out after he suffered concussion against Leinster. Le Roux's place at No 15 is taken by Devon Williams, who played in the No 11 jumper last weekend.

The forward pack remains unchanged, while there is one change on the bench where Zak Burger replaces Keagan Johannes as scrumhalf reserve.

Saturday's URC Grand Final kicks off at 18:00.

Bulls team:

15 Devon Williams, 14 Sergeal Petersen, 13 David Kriel, 12 Harold Vorster, 11 Kurt-Lee Arendse, 10 Johan Goosen, 9 Embrose Papier, 8 Cameron Hanekom, 7 Elrigh Louw, 6 Marco van Staden, 5 Ruan Nortje (captain), 4 Ruan Vermaak, 3 Wilco Louw, 2 Johan Grobbelaar, 1 Gerhard Steenekamp

Substitutes: 16 Akker van der Merwe, 17 Simphiwe Matanzima, 18 Francois Klopper, 19 Reinhardt Ludwig, 20 Nizaam Carr, 21 Zak Burger, 22 Chris Smith, 23 Cornel Smit
