Blue Bulls flyer Bjorn Basson has been declared fit for Saturday's clash with Western Province in Pretoria.

Basson was sidelined for the start of the competition due to an ankle injury.

Blue Bulls team doctor Org Strauss confirmed the continued unavailability of Jacques-Louis Potgieter (ribs) for this weekend, but indicated good progress and the player might return in the next two weeks.

A number of players will miss training on Monday, but will be back on the field Tuesday.

They include Jurgen Visser (toe), Ulrich Beyers (concussion), Burger Odendaal (quad), Akona Ndungane (knee), Deon Stegmann (groin) and Paul Willemse (hamstring), who will all be available to face WP.
