Bulls injury update

The Bulls face a few selection posers for their clash against Griquas in Kimberley on Saturday, with some players returning from injury and dealiong with the call-up to New Zealand for Zane Kirchner.

Akona Ndungane and Deon Stegmann are both back from injuries and will be available for selection, with Stegmann back after missing seven weeks with a fractured cheekbone.

With Zane Kirchner no longer available for the Bulls, and Jurgen Visser hurting himself against the Pumas last weekend, the Bulls might be forced to play Gerhard van den Heever or even Akona Ndungane at fullback.

Coach Pine Pienaar has made it clear that he will consider van den Heever at fullback, as he has played in that position in both Super Rugby and Currie Cup before.

The Bulls need to take a win from Kimberley if they are to have any chance of making the top four and playing in the semi finals in two weeks time.

  • I still believe that van der Heever has an Israel Dagg quality to him and should be developed into a fullback. Sort out his defence and he’s already way ahead of Zane Kirchner in my opinion.

  • @Megatron (Comment 4) @Richard Ferguson (Comment 6) : To each their own but I stand by my statement. I think this kid has a ton of potential and a temperament similar to Francois Hougaard. He hasn’t had a great 2011 season but their have been glimpses of the potential he showed in 2010.

    Keep an eye on him. If he’s managed a little better by the Bulls he’s one for the future.

    He has the potential though but we’ll have to see how it goes in years to come…

  • @Megatron (Comment 16) : Doth the lady protest too much?

    Go read my first comment again. I did not claim that van der Heever is the South African version of Dagg. There’s no use in making direct comparisons like that. I do however see a Dagg-like quality in van der Heever. They’ve both been devastating in their line-breaking ability on the counter-attack at Super Rugby level. van der Heever not so much in 2011 but as I said, we saw glimpses of it.

  • @vanmartin (Comment 9) : There is this amazingly talented kid coming out of Grey College this season – Jan Serfontein. Altho he’s a centre by trade I suggested that the Bulls should consider him for the no.15 jersey (sort of like Taute was moved there and where the likes of Jaque Fourie and Wynand Venter started out). This position is a weak area at the Bulls right now.

    And yes he was from the Eastern Cape originally, so no need for you-know-who-you-are to use the P-word around here. :mrgreen:

    Venter..Jordaan and Serfontein can easily make the step up to senior rugby.

    Can’t he play on the other side of the scrum ahead of Potgieter?

  • @Muzi (Comment 82) : I don’t think we’re developing enough Brussow/Stegmann/Pocock type opensider ground players in SA rugby. Marnus Schoeman is class. We have a standout at u21 level this season – Cloete but he’s too small for the big times. If I were WP, I’d follow on what Dawie Theron did with Nizaam and convert him into a dedicated ground player.

    What surprised me the most when I saw Wiaan for the Bulls u19 at Kingspark, is how tall he is. I didn’t realise that. He is actually about 1.90m. At Craven Week and for SA HP he looked much shorter.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 137) : Richard, I can’t understand that. His run on performances and his cameos suggest that he should have got more starts. He’s a workaholic and knows how to soften up an oppo D. He didn’t seem to be a let down on defence himself. So I’m puzzled.

    At the same time the Sharks have to develop and place emphasis on long term prospects. Jafta, Kleynhans and Mthembu will all most likely receive or already have contract extensions . Teru will have to make a big career decision at the end of the Vodacom Cup imho. Last year I thought he would be the star of u21 rugga. It hasn’t turned out that way. He will have to up his game in the months to come. Alternatively he might see an oppo for game time at a higher level elsewhere. Brynard would be good to keep around for the Vodacom Cup and I wouldn’t be surprised if he plays many more games at a smaller Union in the future.
