The coach of the Vodacom Blue Bulls Frans Ludeke confirmed on Monday morning that the Springboks Victor Matfield, Fourie du Preez, Pierre Spies and Danie Rossouw will immediately start to train with the Bulls.
The Bulls’ official website reports that Bryan Habana is still struggling with his hamstring injury and will only be able to return to the training field at a later stage, but whether these guys will be able to play against the Sharks in Durban on Saturday will only be decided on Wednesday.
Ludeke said another meeting with SA Rugby will take place on Wednesday, but in the meantime Matfield, Du Preez, Spies and Rossouw will train with the Bulls.
However, their Springbok teammate Bakkies Botha will miss the entire ABSA Currie Cup due to injury.
Other good news from the Bulls’ camp is that there are no injuries following Friday night’s drubbing of the Western Province and all the players are up for selection for Saturday’s match in Durban.Tweet
