    All these injuries to the players is why we need a squad with depth and one of the reasons I’m happy that Pierre Spies has signed for another 3 years. We’ve already lost so many loose forwards to ‘greener pastures’ and on this list alone there are another 4 (including Spies) injured. Only one question it lists Jano Vermaak as ‘on loan’ from the Lions but we signed him quite a while ago so who is the other player thats on loan with Mapoe?

    Is there not a problem with the conditioning at the Bulls that they have so many injury problems? Worry

    2 @ Loosehead:
    MUST be, they have almost a third as many injuries as the Free State Cheetahs, and we all know Free State have a conditioning issue… hehehe
