FULL TEAM LISTS: Boks aplenty for two big URC derbies

The four South African teams will look to make up valuable ground on the United Rugby Championship (URC) log this weekend as they take the field with a number of games in hand against most of the overseas franchises.

In a repeat of last week’s matches at alternate venues, the Bulls will host the Lions in Pretoria at 15:00 and the Stormers will meet the Sharks in Cape Town at 17:05, with both encounters being broadcast live on SuperSport.

The South African sides will go head-to-head in gripping local derbies in the next two rounds, as they make up for their URC matches that were cancelled late last year due to the travel restrictions.
