Bulls duo ruled out

Flank Deon Stegmann and hooker Willie Wepener will miss Saturday’s match against the Stormers.

Stegmann hasn’t recovered sufficiently from a hamstring injury and so won’t be risked in a clash of this nature. Wepener has picked up an infection of a facial muscle and is also unavailable.

The absence of Stegmann will mean that neither the Bulls nor Stormers will field a specialist opensider at Newlands this Saturday.
