Jantjies set for timely return

Flyhalf Tony Jantjies is fit and available for the Bulls’ Super Rugby match against the Stormers in Pretoria on Saturday.

Jantjies sustained a rib injury against the Sharks in Durban two weeks ago and subsequently missed the Bulls' match against the Kings last Saturday. But he returned to full training on Monday and is in contention for selection ahead of the Bulls’ last Super Rugby match of the season.

According to SuperSport.com, Handré Pollard will consult a specialist on Tuesday morning regarding his ongoing ankle injury, with a time for his return set to be made after the diagnosis.

Meanwhile, Springbok duo Lood de Jager (back) and Trevor Nyakane (wrist) are also still nursing injuries and will not take any part in Saturday’s game.

Kick-off time for the game has been brought forward from 19:00 to 15:00 on a request from Sanzaar.
