Bulls flank Deon Stegmann has been declared available for selection ahead of Saturday's clash against the Blues at Loftus.
Bulls flank Deon Stegmann has been declared fit and available for selection ahead of Saturday's Super Rugby clash against the Blues at Loftus Versfeld.
Stegmann suffered a groin strain early in the Bulls' warm-up match against the Stormers in late January in Polokwane and has been kept on the sidelines while he recovered.
Stegmann will take full part in the full Bulls training session this week, team doctor Org Strauss said on Monday.
There is bad news however for loose forward Jono Ross (quad contusion) and prop Frik Kirsten (back) as neither will train with the team on Monday, with Kirsten also sitting out Tuesday's scrum session.
Jessie Kriel (calf) and Travis Ismaiel (hip) will also join the rest of the squad on Tuesday.
Pierre Spies (arm, our for six months) and Arno Botha (knee, five months) are the only two long-term casualties.
