Although they have already secured their place in the playoffs, the Tshwane-based side will want to put themselves in a good position for a potential home quarter-final spot, depending on permutations of other exciting fixtures this weekend, should they secure a victory in their final league match on Friday night.
Vodacom Bulls Director of Rugby, Jake White, has selected a strong group for the one-week tour which includes one of the side’s newest recruits, former Junior Springbok utility forward Ruan Vermaak, who joined the side late last week from Japan, where he played for the NTT Red Hurricanes.
“We have an important tour where we will face a dangerous Ospreys team in their own backyard," said White.
"We are at a crucial stage of the competition – the business end of the round-robin stages and on the verge of the playoffs, with plenty to play for in terms of securing home quarter-final spots.
“Be that as it may, the focus is on playing well as a group this week and to start building good momentum going into the playoffs.”
The match will be played at the Swansea.com (Liberty) Stadium, kicking off at 21h10 on Friday.
