Triple blow for Bulls
- 19 Aug 2013
The Blue Bulls have lost hooker Callie Visagie, prop Frik Kirsten and loose forward Jean Cook to injury.
SuperSport.com reports that Visagie (ankle) will be out for between three and four weeks, Cook (thumb) for six weeks and Kirsten (ankle) for a fortnight.
Winger Akona Ndungane (hamstring strain) will probably only be back next week.
The former Kings duo of hooker Bandise Maku and loose forward Jacques Engelbrecht could replace Visagie and Cook for the Bulls' match against the Golden Lions on Saturday.
