Serfontein blow for Bulls
Cape Town - The Bulls have been dealt a
blow with centre Jan Serfontein ruled out of the rest of their Australasian
tour with a knee injury.
Serfontein picked up a Grade 1 medial knee
ligament injury in last Friday’s 34-20 loss to the Chiefs in Rotorua.
The Springbok midfielder has already made
his way back to South Africa and will be replaced by Jurgen Visser for the
Australian leg of the trip.
In other injury news, fullback Jesse Kriel
- who limped off against the Chiefs - has a contusion on his knee, but trained
on Monday, team doctor Org Strauss confirmed.
Prop Trevor Nyakane - who had a bruised hip - also trained, while loose forward Lappies Labuschagne will only train on
Tuesday due to a trachea contusion.
The Bulls have two games left on tour -
against the Brumbies (Friday, May 29) and Rebels (Saturday, June 6).
