    Potgieter's S15 season over

    2014-04-14 14:09
    Cape Town - Bulls flank Dewald Potgieter has been ruled out for the remainder of the Super Rugby tournament.

    Potgieter, 27, injured his bicep in the Bulls' match against the Hurricanes in Napier a few weeks ago.

    He returned home to South Africa to go under the knife.

    The Bulls on Monday confirmed that Potgieter had undergone a successful operation but that he will be sidelined for six months.

    Fellow loose forward, Deon Stegmann, who also returned home due to a groin injury, will undergo surgery on April 23. This could rule him out for at least four months.

    The Bulls have already lost several key forwards to long-term injuries. Pierre Spies (bicep), Arno Botha (knee) and Frik Kirsten (neck) remain on the long-term recovery list.
