Van Zyl left the field against the Waratahs in Sydney last weekend and will be out of action for two weeks, Bulls team doctor, Org Strauss, said on Monday.

The Bulls did however get some good news as both Akona Ndungane (knee) and Jurgen Visser (foot) have been declared fit to face the home side in the nib Stadium.

Ndungane’s availability will result in Francois Hougaard moving back to the base of the scrum.

The Bulls are also awaiting the result of Flip van der Merwe’s citing, as this will determine his availability for the match.

    In other team news, I have it on good authority that Bongi Mbonambi is starting this weekend for the Bulls. That is great news for the young man. I hope heplays to his full potential.

    Americano I hope you watch this game, Bongi is a monster and might just make you a fan.
