The Currie Cup's record try scorer Bjorn Basson has been declared fit and will be considered for selection for the match againstWestern Province at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

Winger Basson missed the start of the Currie Cup competition due to an ankle injury but is now ready to return for the Pretoria based team.

Blue Bulls team doctor Org Strauss confirmed the continued unavailability of Jacques-Louis Potgieter (ribs) for this weekend, but indicated good progress and the player might return in the next two weeks.

A number of players will miss training on Monday, but will be back on the field Tuesday.

They include Jurgen Visser (toe), Ulrich Beyers (concussion), Burger Odendaal (quad), Akona Ndungane (knee), Deon Stegmann (groin) and Paul Willemse (hamstring), however all will be available to face WP.
