Bulls have made two changes to the starting line up for the upcoming United Rugby Championship final against Glasgow Warriors to be played at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

Springbok Kurt-Lee Arendse makes a comeback after returning from injury that forced him to miss the semi-final game. He will start at left wing.

Willie le Roux misses out due to a concussion that he suffered in the knock out game against Leinster with Devon Williams making a shift to fullback.

This will be the first time Bulls will be hosting a major final since 2009 when they won the Super Rugby trophy against Stormers in 2022.

Meanwhile, Glasgow have named an unchanged starting line up for the final.
