Bulls expect Bok duo to be fit

    Cape Town - Bulls centre Jan Serfontein and scrumhalf Rudy Paige should be ready to face the Kings on Saturday despite suffering minor injuries.

    Bulls team doctor Herman Rossouw on Monday confirmed that the Springbok duo suffered minor “niggles” in last Saturday’s 23-18 win over the Cheetahs in Pretoria.

    “They are expected to make full recoveries and should train with the team as of tomorrow (Tuesday),” said Rossouw.

    Rossouw also confirmed the news that centre Burger Odendaal will be sidelined for an extended period after undergoing an operation for a quad muscle injury.

    “He had surgery on Sunday morning and is only expected to make a return after four weeks.”

    Rossouw said fullback Warrick Gelant was still recovering after undergoing surgery on a broken jaw and will be sidelined for five more weeks.

    The Bulls doctor also welcomed the return to fitness of loose forwards Lappies Labuschagne and Deon Stegmann, as well as prop Dean Greyling from long-term injuries.

    Saturday’s clash against the Kings in Port Elizabeth is scheduled for 19:15.
