Werner Kruger, Arno Botha and William Small-Smith have all been ruled out of Vodacom Super Rugby action for the next couple of weeks after picking up injuries on the weekend.

In fact, Vodacom Bulls prop Kruger has been ruled out for at least six weeks, if not longer, after he picked up an ankle injury against the DHL Stormers. Arno Botha, who also left the field on Saturday evening, will be out for two to three weeks with a pectoral injury, team doctor Org Strauss confirmed.

Small-Smith, who played for the Vodacom Blue Bulls team against Steval Pumas in a warm-up match, injured his ankle and will be out of action for at least two weeks. Another midfielder, Burger Odendaal (knee) was ruled out for 4-6 weeks.

There is some good news on the propping front, with Dean Greyling training on Thursday and Marcel van der Merwe (knee/hamstring) due to return in two weeks.

Morne Mellett (ribs), Jacques du Plessis (hip), Hanro Liebenberg (back) and Basil Short (eye) will all train on Tuesday, but Akona Ndungane and Travis Ismaiel both trained on Monday and will be considered for Friday's match against the Hurricanes at Loftus Versfeld. Nicolaas Janse van Rensburg (shoulder) will also be rested for a week.

Flip van der Merwe (pectoral, mid-April), Hencus van Wyk (foot, three weeks), Pierre Schoeman (knee, five months) and Bandise Maku (pectoral, four months) have joined Kruger and Odendaal on the long-term injury list.

    Frans het nou 'n gerieflike verskoning

    "Beserings keer dat ek nie my gameplan kan speel nie"

    Ek is bitter die duiwel in oor die beserings in n stupid onnodige game wat WSS en BO opgedoen het.
    Ek hoor Carlo Engelbrecht het net so seer gekry.
    Soo ook is Hanro beseer. Wat help dit om te se daar is n rotasie beleid - en die spelers wat sogenaamd moet "rus" speel in elk geval.

    The game on Saturday proofed again Frans Ludeke and his coaching team has no feel for an athlete! Why do I say that.......they pick the "weakest link" ...to fill the full back position? This guy has proofed in the past he is not on the super rugby level - Kriel is a phenomenal athlete with MANY qualities - please read what a former Springbok full back - Johan Heunis - had to say about him!!
    What about the forwards......... they let the most young potentially hooker off to the Stormers.....what a loss! Visagie doesn`t nearly match his physical nature!

    What about Rhudi Page .............Piet was fired from the Stormers --He is the weakest link in the backline - start Rhudi!!

    What about all the other athletes who left the Bulls as a result of the limitations of Frans Ludeke as a coach on this level!
    Now let’s look at the scrum...how pathetic!!! Is Victor still a factor???? He has lost his abilities clearly!! Go to the young Bull players and pick those athletes. Typically the young props!!! Look at the rugby the Cheetahs is playing ...fast and furious - quite a few of their players left the Bulls because of Frans Ludeke`s vision problem!!
    I will support the Cheetahs in future and trust they will play Frans Ludeke and his team off the map!
    I will support the Cheetahs in future and trust they will play Frans Ludeke and his team off the map so the Bulls can rise again with a different coach!!
    Remember Frans Ludeke was never a successful coach ---the lions? Even his first year with the Bulls was pathetic ……! Fortunately the old Bull players took that up with the Blue Bull Union ………what was said we never know but the next year the players won the super rugby cup!!
    What made Frans Ludeke at the Bulls………….the team he inherited a who was built by Heyneke Meyer!!
    WHAT ABOUT THOSE STAR YOUNG (athletes) PLAYERS WHO WON THE CUP LAST YEAR???..........IGNORE THEM SO OTHER UNIONS CAN SNATCH THEM?
    Give Werner pension
    Retire Victor and use him in the coaching team
    Bring in two young props - if not they will get rid of you anyway, joining other unions.
    Bring in a young lock to substitute Victor.
    I will support the Cheetahs in future and trust they will play Frans Ludeke and his team off the map so the Bulls can rise again with a different coach!!

    @Fred Lol....are you done?!?!? It's no use bud as long as FI and Xander are in charge nothing will come right for this union...save your breath they won't listen some of us have been preaching what you've just said since 2011.......

    Nou ja nou wat nou. Arno ek weet nie mater wat aangaan nie. WSS is n terugslag (twyfel of hy enige game time sou gekry het)

    So ja ek dink die span sal so lyk kom vrydag

    15) Visser 14) Basson 13) JJ 12) Serfontein 11) Hougaard 10) Pollard 9) PvZ 8) Spies 7) Lappies 6) Steggies 5) Vic 4) J Dup 3) Dayan 2) Strauss 1) Nyakane

    Ek voorspel ongelukkig nog n pakslae as die span min of meer so lyk
  7. gravatar Frik says:
    Manne, ek het ongelukkig nie al die kommentare gelees nie, en ek is nie seker of die punt al ge-opper is nie, maar ons groot probleem op hierdie oomblik is: VICTOR MATFIELD!!! Nie dat hy n swak speler is of hieroor of daroor nie, hy het ongelukkig te se in die unie, hy is soos n "öne man jury". Hoof afrigter, attack coach, kaptein, speler, media man, ens ens. dit sal werk by Boksburg se kaas en wyn span, nie by n potentiele Super 15 contnder nie SORRY!!!
  8. gravatar Lekkerblou says:
    Frik jy slaan die spyker op die kop.

    Matfield is een van die grootste voorstanders van negatiewe rugby.Hy wil in beheer wees van alles,maar is regtig in beheer van niks.

    Behalwe vir die verloor wat ons almal(Die regte Bul ondersteuners) vrek seer maak.

    Is die feit dat daar geen vuur in die span is nie.Dit het net gelyk asof ons agtal net aanvaar het dat die stormers hulle geboelie het.

    EUGENE Ek het nie gese Ludeke 3 nie, wel Bulls 3 Ludeke 2.
    BLOUKAAP. Dankie vir 'n deeglike en sinvolle inligtingstuk rondom Pretoruis, Meyer en Ludeke. Nou weet ons wat ver van Pta is wat die situasie is, asook diegene wat IN Pta. is en glo hulle weet wat aangaan, maar tog nie weet wat aangaan nie ook. Geniet jou tyd weg.
    BALAS. Ek het nooit gese ek is tevrede met die situasie sedert 2010 nie Ek het bloot gereageer op iemand se opmerkings. Die feit dat GEEN SA span die Super 15 kon wen sedert 2010 is vir my as rugby ondersteuner, iets meer om histeries oor te raak as net dieBulls wat dit ook nie kon doen nie.
    Ek se weer. IN 2013 HET 'N ENKELE VERKEERDE BESLUIT ONS DIE SEMI FINAAL GEKOS OP LOFTUS EN WIE WEET DALK 'N DERDE SUPER 15 VIR LUDEKE EN 'N VIERDE VIR DIE BULLS.
