There was good news for Blue Bulls coach Pine Pienaar on Monday with all players returning from the Springboks squad declared fit and available to play the Golden Lions on Saturday.

This means that Zane Kirchner, Francois Hougaard, Mornè Steyn, Arno Botha, Jacques Potgieter, Juandrè Kruger and Flip van der Merwe are available to play on the weekend.

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 play-offs of the Currie Cup, so the return of seven boks will come as a huge boost.

Kirchner (hip) and Potgieter (stomach muscle strain), did not train on Monday, but will be back on the field on Tuesday according to team doctor Org Strauss.

Louis Fouchè (AC-joint strain), Dewald Potgieter (quad), Bjorn Basson (knee) and Franco Mostert (head knock) were also on the sideline on Monday, but will train on Tuesday.
