Most of the changes to the team for this match - which kicks off at 18h30 (SA time) and will be broadcast live on SuperSport - are mostly rotational, with a number of players promoted from the bench from the team that lost to Munster in Ireland last weekend.

Johan Goosen (flyhalf) and Cornal Hendricks (utility back) were ruled out due to injury, which means the Vodacom Bulls' backline had to be tweaked.

At the back, David Kriel (right wing), Stedman Gans (centre) and Chris Smith (flyhalf) will all start against Benetton in a replay of last year's Rainbow Cup final, which the Italian side won.

Upfront, White has named Marco van Staden (flanker), Janko Swanepoel (lock), Francois Klopppers (prop), Bismarck du Plessis (hooker) and Gerhard Steenekamp (prop) to start.

Players who started against Munster last weekend, but will now be required to make an impact off the bench, are WJ Steenkamp (flanker), Walt Steenkamp (lock), Mornay Smith (prop), Simphiwe Matanzima (prop) and Jan-Hendrik Wessels (hooker).

Vodacom Bulls: 15 Kurt-Lee Arendse, 14 David Kriel, 13 Stedman Gans, 12 Harold Vorster, 11 Wandisile Simelane, 10 Chris Smith, 9 Embrose Papier, 8 Elrigh Louw, 7 Marco van Staden, 6 Marcell Coetzee (captain), 5 Ruan Nortje, 4 Janko Swanepoel, 3 Francois Klopper, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Gerhard Steenekamp.
