Bulls prop to miss season opener

Marcel van der Merwe has been ruled out of the Vodacom Bulls' match against the Stormers at Loftus on 14 February.

The Bok prop sustained a medial knee ligament injury during the second half of the pre-season game against Saracens in London on Saturday.

Van der Merwe also pulled his hamstring and would be out for three to four weeks, Bulls team doctor Org Strauss confirmed.
