Johannesburg - Blue Bulls wing Bjorn Basson has been withdrawn from Saturday's Absa Currie Cup rugby match against the Lions in Pretoria because of concussion sustained in last week's Test match between the Springboks and All Blacks in Wellington.

Basson, who scored a record 21 tries in last year's competition while still at Griquas, will be replaced by Stephan Dippenaar with Jurgen Visser coming in on the bench.

The speedster is expected to be back to make his Blue Bulls debut next week when the men from Pretoria host Griquas - his former team.
