Pretoria - Incumbent Springboks Adriaan Strauss,
Jan Serfontein and Handre Pollard are fit again and will be considered for
Saturday's Super Rugby clash against the Sharks in Durban.
According to Bulls team doctor Org Strauss,
all three are ready to travel to the East Coast, along with Lappies
Labuschagne, who recovered from his shoulder injury that kept him out of action
for the matches against the Crusaders, Lions and Reds.
Strauss was rested against the Reds per
SARU agreement, while Serfontein last played against the Force and Pollard
against the Crusaders.
A number of players, Jacques-Louis
Potgieter (hamstring), Marcel van der Merwe (ankle), Burger Odendaal
(contusion), Bjorn Basson (ankle) and Morne Mellett (back spasm) did not train
on Monday, but will be back on Tuesday, Strauss confirmed. Akona Ndungane has
also recovered from a broken hand.
Victor Matfield (knee, two to three weeks),
Travis Ismaiel (ribs, April 20) and William Small-Smith (foot, April 20) will
return before month's end.
Pierre Schoeman, Bandise Maku, Carlo
Engelbrecht, Werner Kruger, Duncan Matthews, Ruan Steenkamp and Ryan Nell are
all still on the long-term injury list.
Saturday's clash at Kings Park kicks off at 17:05.
