Mabeta ruled out of Super Rugby

Bulls lock forward Matunzi Mabeta, better known as Fudge, has sustained a serious knee injury in a car accident and will play no part in the Bulls Super Rugby campaign this year.

Bulls team doctor Org Strauss confirmed to the side’s official website that Mabeta will be operated on later this month to repair a ruptured knee ligament; he will play no rugby for at least 6 months, ruling him out of the premier Southern Hemisphere regional tournament. Having already lost Victor Matfield, Bakkies Botha and Danie Rossouw at the end of the season, the Bulls will not relish the prospect of another of their more experienced second rowers crying off. In Flip van der Merwe and Juandre Kruger, though, they have a young starting lock partnership that would be the envy of most teams. Backup looks a little thin, though, particularly in this most gruelling of competitions.

Other Bulls to be currently on the injury list include Kruger, Bjorn Basson, Gerrit-Jan van Velze, Wesley Dunlop, Dewald Potgieter, Francois Venter, Warwick Tecklenburg and Wynand Olivier, however, all are expected to be fit for selection by the time the tournament kicks off. Props Rossouw de Klerk and Morne Mellet are more long-term casualties, with the former likely to miss the bulk of the tournament and the latter to come into the selection frame in about 6 weeks time.

The Bulls opening Super Rugby game is against the Sharks at Loftus on 24 February.
