Du Preez given amber light

Bulls scrum-half Fourie du Preez’s chances of taking the pitch against the Crusaders in saturday’s Super 14 semi-final increased on Friday after he came through the captain’s run training session in Pretoria.

Du Preez will undergo a further fitness test Saturday lunchtime in South Africa – some two hours before kick-off – before he is given the all-clear, but the signs were encouraging.

Du Preez is trying to shake off a shoulder injury he picked up during the Bulls’ 40-19 win against the Blues a fortnight ago, and which was aggravated in the record-breaking 92-3 win over the Reds last weekend.
