    Cape Town - Bulls loose forward Jono Ross has been cleared of concussion and will be ready for this Saturday's Super Rugby derby against the Lions at Ellis Park (17:05 kick-off).

    As it happened: Bulls v Brumbies

    Ross sustained a knock to the head in the Bulls' 44-23 win over the Brumbies at Loftus Versfeld last Friday.

    However, he received welcome news on Monday when he was cleared of concussion.

    Fullback Jurgen Visser also suffered a contusion against the Brumbies, but will also be ready to face the Lions.

    Both Ross and Visser sat out the Bulls' field session on Monday but will train on Tuesday, team doctor Org Strauss confirmed.

    William Small-Smith is also available again for selection. The 22-year old midfielder was ruled out of last week's selection due to a stomach ailment.

    Meanwhile, back-up scrumhalf Lohan Jacobs has joined the Bulls' long-term injury list after surgery ruled him out at least three weeks.

    The rest of the rehab group is: Tian Schoeman (foot, 3 months), Pierre Spies (bicep, 6-9 months), Arno Botha (knee, 5-6 months), Frik Kirsten (neck, 5 months), Jaco Visagie (knee, 2-3 months), Deon Stegmann (groin, 6 weeks), Hencus van Wyk (AC joint, 2-3 weeks).
