Bulls chase Bok duo

Springbok flankers Juan Smith and Dewald Potgieter are being hunted by the Bulls following their loose forward injury toll, according to reports.

Pierre Spies (bicep) and Arno Botha (knee) have both been dealt lengthy injury setbacks, which has forced the Bulls' sights abroad.

Beeld is reporting that the franchise have made contact with Potgieter and are in advanced talks to have the 27-year-old return to Pretoria. Potgieter is currently playing with Japanese club Yamaha Jubilo.

On the other hand, Smith only wraps up his contract with French club Toulon at the end of June and could only return to South Africa then, if he chooses to do so.
