The Vodacom Bulls have named an unchanged matchday 23 that will do duty against table-topping Irish side, Leinster in the ultimate regulation round of the 2022/23 Vodacom United Rugby Championship at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.
The two teams will meet at 16h00pm, flanked by two fixtures on the day as the fortress will host three premier rugby clashes, in one day. A rugby festival for the entire family. Noisy neighbours, the Emirates Lions will battle Zebre Parma from 13h00 followed by the Vodacom Bulls and Leinster meeting. The day’s action will culminate with the local Jukskei Derby between the Vodacom Bulls and Fidelity ADT Lions in round 7 of the Currie Cup.
