Loose forward boost for Bulls
Cape Town - Bulls loose forward duo of Dewald Potgieter and CJ Stander have been declared fit for their last match on tour against the Chiefs in Hamilton on Friday.
Both Potgieter (AC joint) and Stander (hip) were injured
in their 16-11 loss to the Highlanders in Dunedin on Saturday.
But according to Beeld
, scans on Monday cleared both ahead of the match against the second-placed Chiefs.
Coach Frans Ludeke
will now be able to pick the same team for Friday's clash. The men from Pretoria led the overall Super Rugby standings leading into last weekend's matches, but the hiccup in Dunedin - compounded with the Stormers beating the Waratahs - has seen them slip the fourth spot overall.
"We can finish the tour in the best possible manner. Therefore I am elated to again be able to call on CJ and Dewald's numbers," said coach Frans Ludeke
"You need your best players in key matches and this one - against (one of) the pace-setters in the competition - is certainly such a match."
