Bulls bolstered for Cheetahs

The Bulls have confirmed that Akona Ndungane and Flip van der Merwe will both be considered for selection for their match against the Cheetahs.

Furthermore, Bjorn Basson and Francois Hougaard can prove their fitness tomorrow before the team announcement to further strengthen the team ahead of their first match at Loftus since touring the Antipodes.

The Bulls arrived home a week ago ahead of a bye weekend, allowing their players to take a break and slowly return to full fitness. The only high profile injury remaining is that of Wynand Olivier, who is out for another two weeks. Grant Hattingh and Marcel van der Merwe are set to return in five and three weeks respectively.
