No new injury worries for Bulls

    2016-07-12 13:00

    Cape Town - The Bulls need a miracle to qualify for the Super Rugby playoffs this weekend, but the good news is that they have no new injury concerns following their 50-3 win over the Sunwolves at Loftus on Saturday. 

    Coach Nollis Marais's men are two points behind the Sharks and need the Durbanites to stumble at home to the Sunwolves. 

    It is almost impossible to see that happening, and the Bulls will have to wait until 2017 in their endeavour to rediscover their glory years. 

    Lizo Gqoboka is returning to training this week after sitting out the Sunwolves match with a groin injury, but a decision on his availability for Saturday's trip to the Cheetahs will only be taken on Tuesday.

    RG Snyman and Trevor Nyakane are still out with ankle injuries, Roelof Smit remains sidelines with an eye injury and Deon Stegmann continues to recover from his toe injury. 

    On the long-term injury list Handre Pollard, Jan Serfontein and Warrick Gelant are making good progress in their rehabilitation, the franchise says.
