The Team Doctor and Heyneke Meyer in conjunction with Bakkies Botha tonight decided to withdraw him from the Vodacom Bulls Team because the knee wish he injured against the Lions last weekend has not recovered 100%.


Danie Rossouw will replace him in the starting line-up while Francois van Schouwenburg move up to the bench. ‘It is obviously a mayor setback for the Team.


We don’t want to risk the injury against the Blues. Bakkies still have a mayor role to play in the 2007 season, for both the Bulls and the Springboks.


To lose a player of the caliber of Bakkies is devastating and heart sore but I have full confidence in Danie Rossouw as a lock.

He was disappointed because he was not included in the starting line-up in the first place and now has the opportunity to go out there and make all proud.’ said Heyneke Meyer, Coach of the Vodacom Bulls.
