Comment on this story
iol spt arp21 rugby ball Supplied Ho�rskool Garsfontein in Pretoria has denied having post-matric students and mercenaries in its first rugby team.

Johannesburg – Bulls scrumhalf Piet van Zyl picked up a knee injury and will not play against the Western Force in Perth on Saturday, the last tour match of their 2014 overseas tour for the Pretoria team.

Van Zyl left the field against the Waratahs in Sydney last weekend and will be out of action for two weeks, Bulls team doctor Org Strauss said on Monday.

Akona Ndungane (knee) and Jurgen Visser (foot) have been declared fit to face the Force.

Ndungane's availability will result in Francois Hougaard moving back to the base of the scrum.

The Bulls are also awaiting the result of Flip van der Merwe's citing, as this will determine his availability for the match. – Sapa
