    Le Roux will face Bulls - Naka

    Cape Town - A hamstring niggle won't keep Cheetahs wing Willie le Roux out of their clash against the Bulls, says coach Naka Drotské.

    Le Roux was brilliant in the Cheetahs' 34-22 win over the Kings in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, as his break just before half-time set up a try for centre Johann Sadie which swung the momentum of the match.

    But he left the field in the 64th minute with a hamstring injury, which also plagued him in the build-up to the game.

    However, according to Drotské, Le Roux will be ready to take his pace against the South African conference leaders this Saturday.

    "Willie left the field as a precautionary measure. He will be ready (to face the Bulls)," he told the Volksblad website.

    Le Roux is currently in Durban where a 38-man Springbok squad is gathering for a two-day camp.

    The Cheetahs are fourth on the overall Super Rugby log and second in the South African conference, trailing the Bulls by five points.

    Their clash at the Free State Stadium kicks off at 19:10 on Saturday.
