Prop Rayno Gerber and utility forward Gerrit-Jan van Velze have been summoned to join the Bulls Super Rugby tour party as injury replacements this week.

Gerber, who rejoined the Bulls late last year after a stint playing in France, will replace tight head Frik Kirsten, who broke his hand against the Rebels and will be out of action for around 6 weeks as a result. The Northampton-bound van Velze comes in as a loose-forward replacement for former EP man Jacques Potgieter, whose knee injury will keep him out for up to two months.

Both players starred for the Blue Bulls Vodacom Cup side in their unlikely come-from-behind quarter-final triumph over the Sharks XV on Saturday.
