Cape Town - Flank Deon Stegmann is the only Bulls player who cannot be considered for their Super Rugby clash against the Cheetahs at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday.
Team doctor Org Strauss told Beeld
that Stegmann, who broke his arm earlier in the season, should come into consideration for next week's match against the Sharks in Durban.
Springbok fullback Zane Kirchner, who missed the last two Tests against England with a knee injury, is fit again and will be in contention for selection this week.
Prop Frik Kirsten, who struggled with a hand injury, should also be ready to tackle the Cheetahs.
The Bulls' returning Springboks did not practice on Monday but will hit the ground running on Tuesday.
The team will be eager to get back to winning ways after three successive losses against the Highlanders, Chiefs and Stormers.
They are currently fifth on the overall log
and second in the South African conference with 49 points.
The clash at Loftus kicks off at 19:10 on Saturday.
