The Bulls seem to have come out their bye week in a pretty good position; just a few points behind the Cheetahs, in third place on the SA conference log, they can leap-frog the Free Staters with a win at Loftus this weekend. What’s more, they’ll welcome some players back from injury too.

Flip van der Merwe and Akona Ndungane, both of whom suffered injuries that forced them to return early from tour, have recovered sufficiently to be considered for selection this week.

Beeld’s Marco Botha further reports that scrumhalf Francois Hougaard and winger Bjorn Basson face fitness tests later today and may also be passed fit for this weekend’s clash.

The Cheetahs last recorded a Super Rugby win over the Bulls back in 1997.
