The Bulls have been given a clean bill of health ahead of their Super Rugby semifinal encounter with the Brumbies.

Bulls team doctor Org Strauss confirmed on Monday that the Bulls will be able to pick a full-strength team.

The likes of Springboks Jan Serfontein, Flip van der Merwe and Francois Hougaard has all been cleared to play.

Captain Dewald Potgieter (flu) was the only bystander at training on Monday.

There are a few long-term injuries - with Pierre Spies, Louis Fouché, Arno Botha, Lionel Mapoe, Cornel Hess and Handré Pollard all unavailable.

The Bulls, three-time champions (2007, 2009 and 2010), have qualified for the knock-out stages on four other occasions. Since 2005 they have appeared in the play-offs six times - with 2008 and 2011 the exceptions.

The Brumbies will make their first appearance in the semifinals since they won the second of their two title in 2004.
