JOHANNESBURG - Blue Bulls wing Bjorn Basson could be back in action next week when his side takes on the Lions in a Currie Cup match at Loftus.

Basson injured his intestines during the Bulls play-off defeat to the Crusaders in July and was kept in hospital after undergoing an operation to repair the damage.

Team Doctor Org Strauss says a call on Basson will be made in the next couple of days.

"There's a chance he may be available for next week's game. At this stage we're not sure, but he is progressing nicely."

Over the weekend, the Lions beat Western Province 26-23, while the Bulls beat the Sharks 42-31.
