Injury blows for Bulls

BY NATALI IVERSON - FEBRUARY 17, 2015

Vodacom Blue Bulls prop Werner Kruger, flanker Arno Botha and centre William Small-Smith have all been ruled out for the next few weeks, after they each picked up an injury during their Super Rugby match against the DHL Western Province Stormers this past weekend.

Kruger will be side-lined for at least six weeks, after picking up an ankle injury, with team doctor, Org Strauss saying that Botha, who has a pectoral injury, will be out for two to three weeks.

Small-Smith has been ruled out for at least two weeks also due to an ankle injury.

However, prop, Dean Greyling will continue training on Thursday and may be available for selection when the Bulls face the Hurricanes at Loftus on Friday evening.

Morne Mellett, Jacques du Plessis, Hanro Liebenberg and Basil Short will also be returning to training on Tuesday, and will hopefully be available for selection on Friday.
