Clean bill of health for Bulls after Lions loss
Pretoria - The Bulls emerged unscathed on the injury front following their 49-35 Super Rugby loss to the Lions at Loftus Versfeld at the weekend.
The Bulls medical team announced on Monday that the entire match-day squad that did duty against the Lions will be available for selection against the Reds in Brisbane on Saturday.
Additionally, captain Burger Odendaal (rib) and lock Jason Jenkins (AC joint) have recovered and will be in contention for selection this week.
Odendaal was a late withdrawal before the Lions game.
In his absence, Handre Pollard took over the captaincy and moved to inside centre, with Marnitz Boshoff starting at flyhalf.
Following the Reds game, the Bulls also face the Chiefs (Hamilton, March 16) and Crusaders (March 23) before returning home.
