Pretoria Super Rugby franchise the Bulls have announced that prop John-Roy Jenkinson suffered a hamstring injury in his Super Rugby debut against the Blues in Albany on Saturday and will return home for further treatment

Jenkinson came on as a replacement in the second half of the match in Albany, but suffered a grade two hamstring tear.

This rules him out of the remainder of the tour, which includes matches against the Chiefs and Sunwolves respectively.

Conraad van Vuuren will be flying to New Zealand to join the squad in place of Jenkinson.

A call on the fitness of Hanro Liebenberg will also be made early in the week, according to Vodacom Bulls team doctor, Dr. Herman Rossouw.

“Hanro injured a pectoral muscle and we need to see how it is responding to treatment in the next day or two before we can make a call on his continued involvement on the tour,” Rossouw said.
