Jantjies back for Bulls' season finale

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 20:50

INJURY UPDATE: The Bulls received a double boost ahead of their last Super Rugby match of the season, against the Stormers in Pretoria on Saturday.

Flyhalf Tony Jantjies and Springbok prop Trevor Nyakane have both returned from injury and are likely to feature in the matchday 23 at Loftus Versfeld.

Jantjies injured his rib against the Sharks two weeks ago.

Nyakane injured his wrist while representing South Africa A against the French Barbarians in June.

There is also a possibility that Springbok flyhalf Handré Pollard could play this week.

Pollard, who has been struggling with an ankle injury since last year and withdrew from the SA A team in June, will consult a specialist on Tuesday.

A decision on his availability will be made later this week, according to team doctor Herman Rossouw.

Springbok lock Lodewyk de Jager remain sidelined with a back injury he sustained while on Bok duty in June.

The Bulls will name their team - to face the Stormers - only on Thursday.
