Cape Town - Springbok and Bulls centre Jesse Kriel underwent a successful ankle operation on Tuesday.

The Bulls posted a picture on Twitter of Kriel lying in his hospital bed, giving fans a "thumbs up" that the operation had gone well.

Kriel injured his ankle in the Bulls' 24-23 loss to the Stormers at Newlands over the weekend.

Bulls team doctor Herman Rossouw on Monday said Kriel was expected to be sidelined for between six to eight weeks.

In their next assignment, the Bulls host the Waratahs at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday (15:05 kick-off).
