Ndungane back in action

2010-04-08 08:57

Springbok winger, Akona Ndungane, will make his highly anticipated

return to first class rugby on Saturday after being included in the Vodacom Blue

Bulls side that will travel to Windhoek to face Namibia’s Welwitchias in a

Vodacom Cup match.

After playing in all the Vodacom Super 14 matches for the Bulls

last season, Ndungane broke his leg in September during the Absa Currie Cup and

was out of action since.

With his well planned rehabilitation now completed, the 29-year-old

wing is raring to go. “I had to be patient to make sure I am fully recovered,

but now I am quite excited to play again,” Ndungane said.

The Vodacom Blue Bulls are the only undefeated side in the

competition and will be looking to extend their winning streak to six.

The team is: Tiger Mangweni, Sello Mametsa, Deon Helberg, Stefan

Watermeyer, Akona Ndungane, Francois Brummer, Ruan Snyman, Gerrit- Jan Van Velze

(c), Devin Oosthuizen, Okkie Kruger, Cornell Hess, Bêrend Botha, Rossouw de

Klerk, Chiliboy Ralepelle, Dean Greyling. Replacements: Zane Botha, Ivann Espag,

Morne Mellett, Vincent Gwavu, Danie Faasen, Marnitz Boshoff, Vianon Willis.
