team's training session on Tuesday to prepare for the final Absa Currie Cup match
at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

pool match against Griquas.

Paige (hip flexor muscle), Dean Greyling (calf), Jono Ross (ankle), Callie
Visagie (back muscle) and Deon Stegmann (contusion) also sat out Monday's
session, team doctor Org Strauss confirmed.
of these players will be back on the field on Tuesday and available for selection.
Visser (foot), Pierre Spies (bicep), Arno Botha (knee), Frik Kirsten (neck),
Jaco Visagie (knee), Flip van der Merwe (knee) and Hencus van Wyk (leg) are
still on the long-term injury list and out for the season.
The Blue Bulls, currently in fourth spot in the standings and unable to finish any higher than their current position, may well have to beat Griquas to reach the playoffs.
Should the Pumas beat the EP Kings on Friday night in Port Elizabeth, and the Free State Cheetahs topple to the Golden Lions in Johannesburg on Saturday (17:05), the Blue Bulls will need to beat Griquas to avoid missing out on a trip to Newlands to tackle WP in the semi-finals.
