Pretoria - There was good news for Blue Bulls coach Pine Pienaar on Monday with all the players returning from the Springboks squad declared fit and available to play against the Golden Lions on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 19:10.

Latest Absa Currie Cup standings

This means that Zane Kirchner, Francois Hougaard, Mornè Steyn, Arno Botha, Jacques Potgieter, Juandrè Kruger and Flip van der Merwe are available to play on the weekend.

The Blue Bulls need to win the match to avoid the promotion/relegation match and if other results go their way, could still qualify for the playoffs of the Absa Currie Cup.

Kirchner (hip) and Potgieter (stomach muscle strain), did not train on Monday, but will be back on the field on Tuesday, team doctor Org Strauss confirmed.

Louis Fouchè (AC-joint strain), Dewald Potgieter (quad), Bjorn Basson (knee) and Franco Mostert (head knock) were also sidelined today, but will train tomorrow.

Pienaar will name his team for the Coca-Cola Park clash on Wednesday.
