Out of the last five Super Rugby matches between the Pretoria based Bulls and the Brisbane based Reds the Bulls have won two and the Reds three.

All three of the Reds victories were at home and the Bulls two wins were also at home so home advantage was the deciding factor.

Overall the Bulls have played the Reds 16 times since 1998 and the Bulls have won 6 matches and lost 10 matches.

That gives the Bulls a record of winning 38% of their matches against the Reds regardless of venue with an average score of : Bulls 27 Reds 23.

This weekend the match will be played in Pretoria which is home for the Bulls and where the teams have met 7 times. From those 7 matches the Bulls have won five and lost two.

The Reds won the first two matches – in 1999 and 2001 – and the Bulls have won the last five matches consecutively. The Reds have not won in Pretoria since 2003.

The Bulls have had some differing form this year. They have played 7 matches and won four. Last week they fell at the final hurdle against the Lions in Johannesburg but prior to that they had won four in a row.

The Bulls have played 5 of their 7 matches in Pretoria and won 3 giving them a record of winning 60% of their home matches.

The Reds have also played 7 matches so far and they have won 1 and lost 6. They beat the Force at home in Round 2 but have lost their last five matches.

In terms of selections the Reds have lost Quade Cooper (long term) and James O’Connor (short term) to injury so they have named Nick Frisby at 10 and Karmichael Hunt at 15 with Lachie Turner on the wing.

The Reds have been able to name lock Rob Simmons in the team for the first time this season as he has recovered from a shoulder injury and he replaces James Horwill who has been suspended.

Saia Fainga’a replaces James Hanson who has moved to the bench and an injury to Jake Schatz has forced a shuffle in the back row, with Curtis Browning starting at blindside flanker and Adam Thomson shifting to Number 8.

The Bulls have chosen to rest Handre Pollard, Jan Serfontein and Adriaan Strauss this week so Jacques Louis Potgieter, Burger Odendaal and Callie Visagie start against the Reds.

Arno Botha replaces Hanro Liebenberg at flank having recovered from a hamstring strain, with Liebenberg replacing Roelof Smit on the bench.

Another new face on the bench is that of Flip van der Merwe, who replaces Nicolaas Janse van Rensburg – Van der Merwe missed the first half of the season due to a pectoral muscle tear.
