The Blue Bulls have been given a boost for their Currie Cup match this weekend as loose forward Jacques du Plessis has recovered from his broken jaw and will be available for selection.

Du Plessis trained with the rest of the team on Monday as preparations began for their Currie Cup match against Western Province this week.

While Du Plessis returned to training a number of players sat out with minor ailments.

Sampie Mastriet (hip contusion) and JJ Engelbrecht (rib contusion) will again train on Tuesday, but prop Dean Greyling will have to pass a fitness test on Thursday is he is to play against Western Province on Saturday in Cape Town.

He is suffering from a calf strain. His regular back-up, Morne Mellett is having a scope on his knee today and will be out of action for at least four weeks.

Bjorn Basson (ankle) is also close to full fitness, team doctor Org Strauss confirmed and should be ready to play in the next two weeks.

Tian Schoeman is another who is recovering well from an ankle injury and could train next week.

Pierre Spies, Arno Botha, Frik Kirsten, Jaco Visagie and Flip van der Merwe remain on the long-term injury list.
