  • Engels heading to Perth
    Sat, 29 Mar 2008 07:59

    Bulls prop Jaco Engels has served his three match suspension and will fly out to Perth to replace the injured Dewald Potgieter in the Bulls Touring Squad.

    Potgieter injured his hamstring during the captain’s practice on Friday and was subsequently replaced by hiltonLobberts on the replacements bench.

    Engels has been called up to replace the injured Potgieter after the medical team confirmed that he will not be able to play in the last match of the tour against the Force next Friday.

    I see that now. they have a 41 better PD than we do so even if we end on the same log points we will be behind them on PD. 🙁

    We have a game in hand though which is a bonus.

  • Didn’t watch the match, but sounds as if the Bulls improved somewhat. Hope they keep it up, if only to aid the Sharks’ log position.
