Saints refusing to rule out star ahead of Bulls clash

SPOTLIGHT: Northampton boss Phil Dowson has refused to rule out George Furbank from Saturday’s Champions Cup quarterfinal at home to the Bulls.


The Saints qualified for the last eight with a 24-14 win over Irish province Munster last weekend, a match England fullback Furbank missed with a calf injury.

Dowson said on Tuesday there was still a chance the 27-year-old could face the South Africans.

“He has trained a bit more so we will just wait and see,” Dowson told reporters.

“Any of these soft-tissue things we are very nervy around because you give them a go and then you wait to see what the reaction is.

“He has done a few bits today [Tuesday] so we will manage him coming back in really, in terms of when he gets into contact,” Dowson added.
