Johannesburg - Blue Bulls hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle, will undergo a foot operation on Tuesday and Bulls team doctor Org Strauss, estimates he will be sidelined for at least three months.

Ralepelle injured his foot earlier this year while with the Boks. The injury recurred in the second round of the Absa Currie Cup - and on the year-end tour to Europe it was evident the stress fracture hadn't healed completely.

* The Bulls reassembled at Loftus Versfeld on Monday to start their preparation for the 2010 Super 14 tournament, and apart from Ralepelle's stress fracture, there aren't any other injury concerns in the camp.

The Bulls will train in Pretoria until Friday, December 4, whereafter they will depart for George for their annual summer camp.
