Gary Botha out for 4 weeks


The Vodacom Blue Bulls on Monday received the good news that their captain and Springbok hooker Gary Botha doesn’t require surgery.

Botha will miss the next four weeks of Currie Cup action after suffering medial ligament damage inside the first quarter of his team’s 12-15 loss to Western Province at the weekend.

Team doctor Org Strauss confirmed that scans showed the veteran hooker does not require surgery.

“He will recover through rehabilitation,” Strauss said.

Stand-in captain Derrick Kuün was also cleared from serious injury.

“He [Kuün] took a knock to the knee, but he has started training again today [Monday],” Strauss said, adding that the utility forward will be fit to take his place when the Bulls tackle Griquas on Friday.

  1. Wonder if they’ll bring in the young Baby Boks firebrand at hooker behind Maku?

    Unfortunately for Ralepelle this wasn’t a few weeks earlier he might have made the bench…

    This is nasty thing to say… very indeed… but all the ‘wrong’ people are getting injured…

    Bulls did give GB a break though against the Leopards… albeit the first in around 17 this season… but then again he was not in the Bok plans…
