Things looked all hunky-dory for the Bulls after they thrashed the Stormers, but as they say, a week is a long time in rugby.
From the heights of the 40-3 mauling of their arch rivals at Loftus Versfeld, the Pretoria outfit were given a bloody nose by the Jaguares in Buenos Aires on Saturday, losing 27-12.
And it turned out to be a blue Monday for coach Pote Human and his team, as they found out that captain Lood de Jager has been ruled out for the next two weeks with a shoulder injury.
“After our game in Argentina against the Jaguares, there is just one new injury concern. Lood de Jager left the field of play after 15 minutes with an injury to his shoulder,” Bulls team doctor Herman Rossouw said in his medical report on Monday.
“He will be going for a scan tomorrow morning to determine the extent of the injury there. But he is definitely out for the next two weeks.”
