Frans Ludeke’s Bulls will have to face the six-time champions the Crusaders this coming friday without star winger Bryan Habana after it was determined that the pace man will be out of action for up to a month.

The Bulls opened their Super 14 title defence with a win over fellow South Africans the Stormers in Cape Town but the price of victory may have been high.

The only try of the match came from Bryan Habana in the 35th minute and injured his shoulder when he dived over the line to score the try.


Habana was visibly in pain after the touchdown. He recieved medical attention and chose to stay on only to put in a tackle a minute later seemingly injuring his shoulder further.

Habana was replaced at half time by Marius Delport.

Ludeke admitted after the match that the injury “looked serious”.

Bulls team doctor Tommie Smook said after his first evaluation of Bryan Habana’s shoulder injury that the star winger will be out for two to four weeks.
