Bulls flank Dewald Potgieter has been declared fit for the clash with the Crusaders on Saturday after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Potgieter picked up the injury in the season's opener against Stormers, and is now ready to play again.

The loose trio of captain Pierre Spies, Deon Stegmann and Arno Botha performed particularly well against the Blues last week, and coach Frans Ludeke faces a tough decision on how best to utilise their respective talents against the Crusaders.

According to team doctor, Org Strauss, only Francois Hougaard and Lionel Mapoe picked up niggles in the win over the Blues on Sunday.

Hougaard is recovering from an ankle injury and Mapoe, who scored his first try for the Bulls, injured his shoulder. Both will be fit to face the Crusaders.

Back home in South Africa, Bjorn Basson will be available in two weeks time, while Dean Greyling (one month) and Marcel van der Merwe (May) will be fit after the tour only.
