Bulls team doctor Org Strauss says the team have no new serious injuries following their 61-8 hammering of the Reds at Loftus on Saturday.

Six Bulls players missed training on Monday but Strauss said that all of them should be available to play against the Stormers in Cape Town on Saturday.

Willie Wepener (ear), Chiliboy Ralepelle (flu), Werner Kruger (neck), Jacques Potgieter (neck and back), Jano Vermaak (back) and CJ Stander (head wound) sat out the afternoon session.

However Strauss also told SuperSport that Deon Stegmann is likely to miss the match against the Stormers.

"Steggies is a bit doubtful at the moment," said Strauss.

"And to be honest the chances are slim that he will be ready," explained Strauss.

"Still we will take a final decision after Tuesday afternoon's practice session."

Stegmann has missed the Bulls last two matches with a hamstring injury and a scan last week revealed that what had initially looked like a grade one tear now looks more like a grade two tear.

Strauss said a final call on Stegmann's availability for the Stormers match will be made on Tuesday.
