Reading Time: < 1 minute

Former Springboks flyhalf Morne Steyn is set to start ahead of Manie Libbok for the Vodacom Bulls when they face archrivals the Emirates Lions on #SuperHeroSunday at the FNB Stadium in Soweto.

In the second game of the afternoon, the Cape Town-based DHL Stormers will take on the Cell C Sharks in their clash as all four sides prepared for the upcoming Super Rugby season.

Bulls coach Pote Human explains some of their selections ahead of the game.

After leading the side out during their warm-up matches against Varsity Cup side TUKS last weekend, Human also confirmed that center Burger Odendaal has been selected as team captain for the remainder of the Super Rugby campaign.

The 27-year-old Odendaal, who is now one of the senior and the longer serving members in the team, say he is also looking forward to leading the team injury permitting.

The veteran Pivot, Steyn, recently joined the Bulls side following the birth of his Baby last month and Odendaal says they can already see his impact in and amongst the team.

Odendaal adds that he is looking forward to playing with the World Cup winner on his inside.
