Gelant named in Bulls touring squad
SQAUD ANNOUNCMENT: Bulls coach John Mitchell inlcuded Warrick Gelant in his 27-man touring sqaud.
The Springbok missed two Super Rugby matches due to a knee injury.
Thus far, Gelant's spot in the starting XV has been occupied by 21-year-old Divan Rossouw as Bulls head coach John Mitchell indicated that he is wary not to rush the Springboks back to action.
The Bulls opened their campaign with a 21-19 win over the Hurricanes, however, had to settle for a 35-49 defeat to the Lions on Saturday.
The Pretoria-based franchise will first travel to the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane to take on the Queensland Reds, before heading to New Zealand to take on the Chiefs at the Waikato Stadium, with their final stop in Christchurch facing the mighty Crusaders.
