Vodacom Bulls skipper Victor Matfield will be sidelined for three weeks after injuring his shoulder in Saturday’s victory over the Reds at Loftus.

He has a grade one tear in his AC joint.

This means the Springbok lock will miss the games against the Blues this weekend as well as against the Lions in Johannesburg the following week.
