Returning Bulls fit to play

2012-10-08 15:01

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.

      @dronk rot Isak I can smell your fear for the mighty Bulls. Next year's Currie cup teams: Bulls/Sharks/Lions/Cheetahs/Griquas/Kings

      @vissie- jy's reg omtrent Botha en malherbe, maaaar jy moet in gedagte hou, dat Botha def later vir di Bokke gaan speel, maar malherbe nooit gaan uitdraf vir di Bokke ni, dus moet jy verstaan, dat HM net weepee ondersteuners wou sus of bly maak?? ook wou HM miskien di arme weepee unie help, deur sulke swak spelers soos malherbe op te roep en uit di cc te hou sodat weepee 'n beter kans het om di uitspeel rondes te haal, wie weet??

    The boks can make a big difference, although it did not help the Sharks much last year. Anyone of 4 teams can still end last. Bulls and WP to both miss the play offs?

      spyker.oflanagan - 2012-10-08 14:55

      Miskien WP.

      jaco.groenewald.731 - 2012-10-08 15:26

      It is actually possible mate, if Grikwas beat the Sharks and FS whack WP, and the bulls lose to the Lions. WP and Bulls will be 5 and 6!!!

      stirrer.stirrer - 2012-10-08 15:38

      kaptein.spies - 2012-10-08 17:16

      @spyker Lag maar net lekker uit jou sphincter van Oddi vir Eddie.Minora, hy kom van Mosselbaai af. Say no more. Net Despatch het groter pyle

      spyker.oflanagan - 2012-10-08 18:12

      Die grootstes.

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-08 22:45

      Eddie die pink pansies is nie outomaties terug in die Currie Beker in 2014 nie. Hulle moet eers die 1st division wen (sal hulle darem bietjie silwer gee in die stof belaaide kas op moftus). Dan moet hulle weer promotion relegation games teen die Kings speel.

  • kaptein.spies - 2012-10-08 17:06

    2012 Semi-finals: Sharks vs Bulls, Lions vs Griquas 2013 Currie cup teams: Bulls/Sharks/Lions/Cheetahs/Griquas/Kings

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-08 22:46

      Ons noem jou sommer Nostradamus.

  • RetiefC - 2012-10-08 17:30

    Welkom terug al die BUL Bokke!

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-08 22:47

      Kan jy hulle regtig Bokke noem as nie een van hulle 'n game in die Rugby Championship gespeel het nie?

  • chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-08 22:37

    Was there any doubt that they were not fit? None of them played in the Rugby Championship. Of course all of them will be fit. Just won't have any game-time behind them.
