Two Bok forwards declared fit

Although Jacques Potgieter and Dean Greyling will return for the Bulls against the Sharks this weekend, there is still doubt over Zane Kirchner's availability.

Springbok forwards Potgieter and Greyling have both been declared fit, but Kirchner will have to visit a specialist later this week to determine whether he can play against the Sharks in Durban having had the screw in his finger removed on Friday

Although the Bulls declared a clean bill of health after beating the Highlanders, a number of players are still recovering from slight niggles.

Flip van der Merwe (calf), Francois Hougaard (knee), Werner Kruger (flu), Jan Serfontein (lower leg), Dewald Potgieter (knee), Frik Kirsten, Juandrè Kruger (hamstring) and Lionel Mapoe (knee) will all start training on Tuesday, while a call will be made on Louis Fouchè on Wednesday as he is still recovering from a hip pointer.

Chiliboy Ralepelle (knee) will also return to the field on Wednesday.
