Bulls call on Geldenhuys

Lions prop Ross Geldenhuys has been training with the Bulls who’ve suffered something of a tighthead crisis.

The Bulls have an agreement with the Lions and have thus roped in Geldenhuys, a prop who played for the Johannesburg franchise in this year’s Super 14. The latest rib injury to regular Bulls No 3 Werner Kruger necessitated the call up.

Geldenhuys has recently been involved in the South African National Club Champs for Pirates. Should he start against the Cheetahs at Loftus Versfeld, he’ll be up against a formidable scrummaging opponent in Wian du Preez.
