Pierre Spies out for season
Cape Town - Bulls captain Pierre Spies
will be out for the rest of the 2013 rugby season after tearing a bicep muscle on Saturday while playing for the Springboks against Samoa in the Incoming Series.
Spies saw two specialists, one in Johannesburg and one in Pretoria for opinions and ultrasound scans revealed the damage. He will undergo an operation on Tuesday.
Bulls team doctor Org Strauss said there is no chance of Spies returning to action this season.
The Bulls will therefore have to appoint a new captain, with hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle
and loose forward Dewald Potgieter
the likely candidates.
They tackle the Kings at Loftus Verfeld on Saturday (17:05 kick-off).
