Bulls lose Potgieter (too)

After we reported yesterday that the Bulls have lost flanker Deon Stegmann to a broken cheek, it turn out that their other flanker (and current skipper) Dewald Potgieter, will also miss out on this weekend’s must-win home game against Griquas.

Stegmann has been confirmed out for a month, while Potgieter has been forced to undergo corrective surgery after a nasty nose break two weeks ago. The blonde flanker will probably be back within a week or two, but the Bulls will now need to look elsewhere for a captain for Friday’s match. With Chilliboy Ralepelle back with the Boks, the somewhat out-of-sorts Gary Botha will probably come back into the starting line-up and grab the captain’s armband as he does so.

Replacing the missing flankers is more difficult, with few candidates putting their hands up for selection. Don’t be terribly surprised, though, to find on-loan Bulls flanker, Marnus Schoeman, mysteriously unavailable for Griquas selection this week.
