BLUE BULLS flanker Dewald Potgieter has been ruled out of the Absa Currie Cup match against the Boland Cavaliers at Loftus on Friday.

He will be out of action for at least four weeks after he fractured his wrist.

Ian Schwartz, the Bulls media officer, confirmed Potgieter's injury yesterday.

He will be replaced by Gerrit-Jan van Velze. Potgieter's replacement is the only change coach Frans Ludeke made to the starting line-up for the Cavaliers match. Scrumhalf Francois Hougaard's groin injury is still keeping him on the sidelines.

The squad: Tiger Mangweni, Gerhard van den Heever, Jaco Pretorius, Stefan Watermeyer, Marius Delport, Francois Brummer, Heini Adams, Dries van Schalkwyk, Gerrit-Jan van Velze, Jacques Burger, Wilhelm Steenkamp, Flip van der Merwe, Werner Kruger, Derick Kuun (captain), Gurthro Steenkamp.
