Cape Town - Bulls flanker Dewald Potgieter is fit again and can be considered for their Super Rugby clash against the Crusaders in Christchurch on Saturday, according to the Bulls' website.
Potgieter, 26, suffered a hamstring strain against the Stormers few weeks back, which saw him miss their wins over the Force and Blues.
Potgieter's return means coach Frans Ludeke
has an abundance of riches at loose forward. The trio of Pierre Spies
, Deon Stegmann and Arno Botha performed well in Sunday's 28-21 win over the Blues
in Auckland, while Springbok Jacques Potgieter was on the bench.
Meanwhile, scrumhalf Francois Hougaard
(ankle) and centre Lionel Mapoe (shoulder) picked up niggles in Sunday's win. However, both will be ready for this weekend's clash.
Wing Bjorn Basson will be available in two weeks' time, while prop Dean Greyling (one month) and Marcel van der Merwe (May) will be fit after their Australasian tour only.
The men from Pretoria are currently unbeaten after three matches, leading the South African conference while only trailing the Brumbies on the overall log
