The Blue Bulls had a mixed bag of news on the injury front, following their humiliating  62-23 thrashing at the hands of the Golden Lions at the weekend.

Blue Bulls wing Travis Ismaiel has been ruled out of this coming weekend's Currie Cup match against the Sharks, after sustaining a knee injury in the loss to the Lions.

Ismaiel, who scored his first Currie Cup try, will be out of action for at least two weeks.

Springbok Akona Ndungane has been declared fit, following a hamstring strain, and started training on Monday.

According to the Blue Bulls team doctor Org Strauss Ismaiel was the only casualty from the Lions clash.

Tony Jantjies (back), Jacques du Plessis (finger) and Francois Venter (shoulder) - who all took knocks at Loftus at the weekend - will only train on Wednesday, as will Frik Kirsten, who missed the last two matches due to an ankle injury.

Hooker Callie Visagie, who missed the Lions match, has been added to the long-term injury list.

Visagie has also been ruled out for six weeks, following a scan on his ankle and he will join Jean Cook (broken thumb) on the sidelines.

Basil Short (knee), Francois Hougaard (ankle), Cornell Hess (knee), Deon Stegmann (shoulder), Arno Botha (knee), Pierre Spies (bicep) and Louis Fouché (knee) remain long term injuries.
