Springbok full-back Zane Kirchner will be fit to return to action next week when the Bulls take on the Highlanders.

Kirchner has been sidelined since the beginning of April when he was forced to undergo surgery on a dislocated finger. The 28-year-old is still a week away from full fitness, but with the Bulls currently enjoying a bye, he will be ready to run out with them against the Otago outfit next Saturday.

Callie Visagie (ankle), Jan Serfontein (lower leg) and Marcel van der Merwe (knee) will also be available for selection.

Paul Willemse (knee - 11 weeks), Cornall Hess (knee - 6 months) and Frans Venter (groin - 5 weeks) remain out of action.
