Bulls: injured Steenkamp to be out for weeks

2011-03-23 00:00

JOHANNESBURG — The Vodacom Bulls were dealt a major setback when it emerged that Springbok prop Gurthro Steenkamp has fractured a bone in his arm and will be out of action for between six to 12 weeks. Steenkamp was under the watchful medical eye of the Bulls’ doctor Org Strauss this week, initially for an ankle strain sustained in this past weekend’s clash against the Stormers.

The Bulls are likely to take their incumbent tighthead Werner Kruger and his back-up Rossouw de Klerk, but with injuries to Frik Kirsten, Dean Greyling remains the only loosehead in the Super Rugby squad.
