Hougaard out for 4 weeks

The Blou Bulle can’t seem to catch a break with regard to the vital scrumhalf position; newly capped Springbok Francois Hougaard has been ruled out for 4 weeks due to a stress fracture in his foot.

The Bulls are anxiously holding fumbs that the fiery young number 9 will be ready for the Super Rugby game against the Lions on 9 February 2011, but judging by the late diagnosis last week, this seems unlikely.

While the Blou Masjien will miss his speed, creativity and tigerish defence, they have a reasonable replacement in the form of one Fourie du Preez – a man certainly deserving of 2 surnames. However, while both the Bulls and the Springboks are anxiously hoping that du Preez will yet again be the general to guide their respective teams to glory this year, he is just returning from a lengthy lay-off, and will need some time to ease into the high-paced Super rugby league, leave alone being ready for the intensity of test rugby.

Even if he does make a quick recovery, Hougaard can certainly be expected to play a significant impact role off the bench at both provincial and national level, and so we wish the mulleted star all the best for a speedy recovery.

  • bloody good scrummie… sad thing is, he’s probably also a better wing and outside centre than anyone else they have in those two positions. Assuming Basson gets a ban…

  • so who is the Bulls third choice scrummie?
    Houghard spent last S14 almost exclusively at the wing and with Basson in uncertainty who will they put at the wing.

  • MMMM? And won’t it be sooo very dissapointing(for some)if the Bulls, with their backs to the wall, go on to do well in the competition, or, lo and behold, even win it :shock:

    Sign of respect really. I don’t believe that the Bulls will be derailed by 1 or 2 injuries – they have plenty of depth.

    Not counting any chickens – if I’ve learnt anything about rugby it’s that there’s many a slip twix the cup & the lip ;-) – I am always so stressed when “my” boykies play that I often wonder why I bother to watch – sucker for punishment i guess :!: :mrgreen:
