Bulls dealt double injury blow



The Vodacom Bulls were dealt a double blow on Sunday as it was learnt that both flanker Jacques Potgieter and prop Frik Kirsten would return home with injuries.

Potgieter, who limped off the field with a knee injury, went for a scan in Sydney on Saturday and was given the bad news that he had damaged his kneecap and would be out for between six and eight weeks.

Kirsten, who came onto the field as a replacement, broke his hand in the game and has also been ruled out for six weeks.

While the Bulls already gave Springbok prop Dean Greyling permission to return to South Africa because of the birth of his first child, they now have a small problem in the front row with only one fit loosehead on tour.

Dawie Steyn will start this weekend against the Waratahs, with Rayno Gerber joining up with the team on Monday after flying out of South Africa on Sunday. Loose forward Gerrit-Jan van Velze will also join the Bulls in Australia.

Wynand Olivier injured ribs and is likely to miss the match against the Waratahs in Sydney on Friday. He will be replaced by Francois Venter or Johan Sadie.
