Perth - Bulls scrumhalf Piet van Zyl has picked up a knee injury and will not play against the Western Force in Perth on Saturday, the last tour match of their 2014 overseas tour for the Pretoria team.
Van Zyl left the field against the Waratahs in Sydney last weekend and will be out of action for two weeks, Bulls team doctor, Org Strauss, said on Monday.
Good news is that both Akona Ndungane (knee) and Jurgen Visser (foot) has been declared fit to face the home side in the nib Stadium.
Ndungane's availability will result in Francois Hougaard moving back to the base of the scrum.
The Bulls is also awaiting the result of Flip van der Merwe's citing, as this will determine his availability for the match.
