Pretoria - Blue Bulls front rower Hencus van Wyk will miss the rest of the Currie Cup season after undergoing ankle surgery which ruled him out of rugby for six months.

Van Wyk was injured in the match against Western Province on August 30.

There were no casualties in the Blue Bulls ranks following their 36-26 win over the Golden Lions at Loftus Versfeld at the weekend, team doctor Org Strauss confirmed on Monday.

Dean Greyling (ankle) and Callie Visagie (groin) will only train on Tuesday, while Ulrich Beyers and Nardus van der Walt is sick and sat out Monday's session.

Jesse Kriel will return next week from his ankle strain as well as Morne Mellett (knee).

Jurgen Visser, Pierre Spies, Arno Botha, Frik Kirsten, Jaco Visagie, Flip van der Merwe and now Van Wyk remain on the long-term casualty list.
