Bulls plagued by injuries

2012-05-14 09:34

Three Bulls players have been ruled out of the Super Rugby competition until July.

The Pretoria union said in a statement today that Deon Stegmann (fractured forearm), Jacques Potgieter (knee cap dislocation) and Frik Kirsten (hand fracture) had returned home after picking up injuries on their tour of Australia.

Bulls team doctor Org Strauss said Dewald Potgieter (grade two hamstring tear) and Wynand Olivier (ribs) had been declared fit and would be available for selection for their match against the Highlanders on Friday.

The Bulls defeated the Waratahs 27-24 in Sydney last week to move top of the Super Rugby table.
