Cape Town - The Bulls have reported no new injuries following their 37-14 win over the Sharks in Pretoria at the weekend.

Team doctor Herman Rossouw said on Monday that all the players emerged unscathed from the Sharks game.

"It is expected that the whole squad will be available next week after our bye," Rossouw said.

Rossouw added that injured quartet of locks Eli Snyman and Aston Fortuin, hooker Jaco Visagie and flank Ruan Snyman would make a return against the Chiefs at Loftus Versfeld on March 23.

"All four of them will also be available after our bye," Rossouw said.

The Bulls doctor also gave updates on injured players still sidelined.

"Further good news is that Travis Ismaiel (wing), Johnny Kotze (centre/wing) and Marco van Staden (flank) will also be able to train fully with the squad, not selectable yet, but they will be able to train.

"Also good news to report is that RG Snyman (lock) is making good recovery. He is starting with selective field work as of next week, but not an option for selection yet."
