Deon Stegmann back for Bulls next week

The Bulls have revealed that loose forward Deon Stegmann will return to the playing field and be available for selection next week

Stegmann is in the final stage of recovery following a groin operation.

His departure from the long-term injury list was good news, not so the new arrivals in Flip van der Merwe and Jacques du Plessis.

Van der Merwe injured his knee whilst on Springboks duty and was ruled out for six months, while Du Plessis broke his jaw in a warm-up match against Namibia. He has been ruled out for at least five weeks.

The rest of the players on the mend are: Tian Schoeman (ankle, 6-8 weeks), Pierre Spies (Bicep tear, 4-5 months), Arno Botha (knee surgery, 4-5 months), Frik Kirsten (neck surgery, 4 months), Jaco Visagie (knee surgery, 3-4 months), Rohan Janse van Rensburg (ankle, 4-5 weeks).

Travis Ismaiel (finger dislocation) will train next week, whilst Waylon Murray (ankle) will train on Thursday.
