Paige and Hougaard fit to play
Vodacom Bulls halfback Rudy Paige and wing Francois Hougaard have been cleared to train with the team as they prepare for their Vodacom Super Rugby clash against the Chiefs in Rotorua on Saturday.
Paige had a knee ligament sprain and Hougaard a left quad contusion after their match against the Blues in Auckland, but will be available for the final tour match on New Zealand soil.
Irne Herbst and Piet van Zyl, who are both ruled out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury, heads the long-term injury list. Pierre Schoeman (knee), Bandise Maku (pectoral) and Ruan Steenkamp (knee) will all return on 31 July and Ryan Nell (knee) and Duncan Matthews (knee) on 31 August.
