Cape Town - The Bulls have reported three new injuries ahead of Friday's Super Rugby encounter against the Highlanders in Dunedin.

Wing Rosko Specman and loose forward Paul Schoeman have been ruled out, while there is also concern about fullback Warrick Gelant's availability.

Team doctor Herman Rossouw said Specman sustained a grade two hamstring strain in the 22-all draw with the Blues in Auckland, while Schoeman suffered a knee injury.

Both players have returned to South Africa, with fit-again flyhalf Handre Pollard and lock Eli Snyman flown to New Zealand to replace them.

Gelant, meanwhile, picked up a hamstring strain and a call on his availability will be made later in the week.

Friday's clash in Dundedin is scheduled for 09:35 (SA time).
