Bulls lose V/d Merwe to injury
Blue Bulls lock Flip van der Merwe will miss Saturday's Currie Cup clash with the Free State Cheetahs in Bloemfontein due to a knee injury.
The Springbok, who missed last Saturday's Test with the All Blacks through suspension,will be out of action for at least a week, Bulls team doctor Org Strauss confirmed.
Another Springbok, JJ Engelbrecht, has bruised ribs, but should be back on the training field on Tuesday.
Francois Venter (shoulder) will train on Wednesday while Mornè Mellett (neck, four weeks) and Callie Visagie (ankle, seven weeks) have been declared non-starters for the rest of the Currie Cup campaign.
