Blue Bulls lose Stegmann for Currie Cup season

The Blue Bulls have lost Deon Stegmann for the remainder of the Currie Cup season.

The international loose forward broke his arm while playing for the Blue Bulls against Western Province in Cape Town on the weekend and will be out of action for at least two months.

This was confirmed by Blue Bulls team doctor Org Strauss on Tuesday.

“Deon again broke the same arm that was injured during the Super Rugby season,” Strauss said.

The injury means that coach Pine Pienaar will again have to make changes to his loose trio ahead of Saturday’s Currie Cup match against the Golden Lions at Loftus Versfeld.

Arno Botha is still out for another week or two due to a hamstring strain, but Strauss had some good news with regards to Bjorn Basson.

“Bjorn should be back next week and will be able to start training,” he said.

The Blue Bulls will name their side to play the Lions on Wednesday.
