Captain Burger Odendaal is likely to miss the Vodacom Bulls’ match against the Jaguares at Loftus on Saturday due to injury.
The 26-year-old skipper is the only new casualty on the Bulls’ injury list, having complained of a sore ankle during the team’s post-match medical examination.
Odendaal suffered the injury in the game against the Blues this past Saturday. Scans have since revealed that there is bruising of his ligaments and a call on his availability will only be made later in the week.
