Super Rugby teams: Round five squads, injury news, referees, kickoff times

BULLS captain Burger Odendaal is back in the starting lineup to face the Chiefs in Hamilton on Friday after missing the previous two Super Rugby games due to injury.

He takes over the captaincy from Handre Pollard and the inside centre berth from Johnny Kotze.

Bulls coach John Mitchell has also opted for Divan Rossouw on the left wing, where he replaces Duncan Matthews in the other change to the backline.

Up front, Trevor Nyakane comes in for Frans van Wyk at tighthead prop and Thembelani Bholi is back at flanker, with Hanro Liebenberg moving to No 8 where he takes over from the injured Nic de Jager.

De Jager had to return home due to a broken rib and his replacement, Tim Agaba, is bracketed as a replacement with Jason Jenkins.
