Du Preez concern for Bulls

Fourie du Preez is a doubt for the Bulls’ game against the Cheetahs at Loftus on Saturday after injuring his calf muscle in the win over the Force.

Dr Org Strauss said that there is a chance that Du Preez has torn his calf but the extent of the injury will only be known on Monday afternoon.

Du Preez’s Springbok team mate Wynand Olivier hurt his back as well as his leg against John Mitchell’s team, but Strauss is optimistic that he will recover in time for the derby.

The rest of the squad are all eligible for selection and Bakkies Botha makes a welcome return to the squad having served his three week suspension.
