    2015-04-14 09:00

    Pretoria - Incumbent Springboks Adriaan Strauss, Jan Serfontein and Handre Pollard are fit again and will be considered for Saturday's Super Rugby clash against the Sharks in Durban.

    According to Bulls team doctor Org Strauss, all three are ready to travel to the East Coast, along with Lappies Labuschagne, who recovered from his shoulder injury that kept him out of action for the matches against the Crusaders, Lions and Reds.

    Strauss was rested against the Reds per SARU agreement, while Serfontein last played against the Force and Pollard against the Crusaders.

    A number of players, Jacques-Louis Potgieter (hamstring), Marcel van der Merwe (ankle), Burger Odendaal (contusion), Bjorn Basson (ankle) and Morne Mellett (back spasm) did not train on Monday, but will be back on Tuesday, Strauss confirmed. Akona Ndungane has also recovered from a broken hand.

    Victor Matfield (knee, two to three weeks), Travis Ismaiel (ribs, April 20) and William Small-Smith (foot, April 20) will return before month's end.

    Pierre Schoeman, Bandise Maku, Carlo Engelbrecht, Werner Kruger, Duncan Matthews, Ruan Steenkamp and Ryan Nell are all still on the long-term injury list.

    Saturday's clash at Kings Park kicks off at 17:05.
