Spies Injured
June 25, 2013, 10:31:06
Bulls captain Pierre Spies will be out for the rest of the season after tearing a bicep muscle last Saturday while playing for the Boks against Samoa.

Spies saw two specialists, one in Johannesburg and one in Pretoria, for opinions and ultrasound scans revealed the damage. He requires surgery.

Bulls team doctor Org Strauss said this operation will rule Spies out for the rest of the season.

Not great news for him as a person. But at the same time, this opens the door for someone in that eighth position. Duane is out injured already, so who's fit to take that place guys?

 Laberschagne would be my choice as he is an allrounder like Vermuelen. 

Cotzee like most Sharks players in not in the form he was last year
