Bull sweating over star lock

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 21:01

INJURY UPDATE: The Blue Bulls could be without one of their key players when they head to Durban on Saturday for a Currie Cup semifinal showdown with the Sharks.

Lock Aston Fortuin, one of the young stars in the team, sprained his ankle in the win over the Pumas last Friday.

Although he had made good recovery by Monday, when the players returned to training, a decision on Fortuin's availability will only be made later in the week.

It is the only new injury concern for the men from Pretoria.

Jannes Kirsten (ankle), Duncan Matthews (hamstring strain) and Ulrich Beyers (concussion) have all resumed training.

They will be available for selection this week.
