Title-chasing Bulls have a new headache

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 20:39

INJURY UPDATE: The Blue Bulls have a new injury concern as they head into the decisive final round of Currie Cup league action.

The Bulls, fresh off a 64-36 win over the Free State Cheetahs in Bloemfontein last Friday, host the Pumas at Loftus Versfeld this coming Friday.

The 15-try, 100-point thriller, in Bloemfontein means the Bulls can cement their place in the semifinals with a win over the Pumas.

However, midfielder Ulrich Beyers sustained a concussion late in the match against the Cheetahs.

He did not pass the HIA test on Monday.

As a result, it is unlikely that he will be available for selection this week.

Jannes Kirsten, who picked up an ankle injury against the Sharks last month, will be monitored throughout the week and a call on his availability will be made in due course.

Eli Snyman, Roelof Smit and Travis Ismaiel will be available for selection against the Pumas on Friday.
