Pretoria – The Bulls take on the Hurricanes in a Super Rugby clash on Saturday.

The Pretoria side are searching for a top-three spot with a win against the New Zealand team.

Frans Ludeke’s side are three points behind the Cheetahs, and are on a three-match winning streak, having defeated the Cheetahs, Southern Kings and the Waratahs.

The Bulls didn’t find success on their Australasian tour and are eager to get their season back on track.

A win will see them leapfrog the Cheetahs into a top-three spot as they hold a game in hand over the Free State side.

But it will be a tough game for Pierre Spies and his boys.

The Hurricanes are coming off a close loss to the Stormers and will be looking for redemption.

The Wellington outfit are lying tenth on the log --- seven points behind the Chiefs -- and will have to pick up the pace if they wish to secure a crucial playoff spot.

This thrilling encounter kicks off at 19:10 from Loftus Versfeld.
