CAPE TOWN - The Blue Bulls on Monday said they could welcome back flankers Arno Botha and Dewald Potgieter from injury ahead of their Currie Cup match against the Sharks this weekend.

The two men were injured during their side's 32-18 loss to the Cheetahs on Friday.

Team doctor Org Strauss said he is confident the pair will be declared fit later this week.

"Arno [Botha] sustained an injury to his thigh muscle, while Dewald [Potgieter] strained his hamstring muscle. They may be available for the game this weekend."

Strauss said despite the injuries, the team has a clean bill of health.

"Currently, all the guys that played Friday should be available to play this coming Saturday."

In another Currie Cup game, Western Province beat the Griquas on Saturday.

Defending champions the Golden Arrows were beaten by the Sharks at Kings Park in Durban.
