The Blue Bulls received a boost when all their returning Springboks were declared fit for Saturday's Currie Cup clash with the Golden Lions in Johannesburg.
This means that Zane Kirchner, Francois Hougaard, Mornè Steyn, Arno Botha, Jacques Potgieter, Juandrè Kruger and Flip van der Merwe are all available to play in this crucial fixture.
The Blue Bulls need to win this match to avoid the promotion/relegation match and if other results go their way, could still qualify for the semi-finals.
Kirchner (hip) and Potgieter (stomach muscle strain), will not train on Monday, but will be back on the field on Tuesday, team doctor Org Strauss confirmed.
Louis Fouchè (AC-joint strain), Dewald Potgieter (quad), Bjorn Basson (knee) and Franco Mostert (head knock) are also on the sidelines, but will also return to training on Tuesday.
Coach Pine Pienaar will name his team for the clash on Wednesday.
