Pretoria - Deon Stegmann has been declared fit and available for selection ahead of the Bulls' match against the Blues at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.
Kick-off is at 19:10.
Stegmann suffered a groin strain early in the Bulls' warm-up match against the Stormers in January in Polokwane and was kept on the sidelines while he recovered.
Stegmann will take full part in the full Bulls training session this week, team doctor Org Strauss said on Monday.
Not so for Jono Ross (contusion quad) or Frik Kirsten (back) who will not train, with Kirsten also sitting out Tuesday's scrum session.
Jessie Kriel (calf) and Travis Ismaiel (hip) will also join the rest of the squad on Tuesday.
Pierre Spies (arm, 6 months) and Arno Botha (knee, 5 months) are the only two long term casualties.
