The Bulls winger Bryan Habana will be out for up to a month after suffering a broken hand against the Lions at the weekend. The Pretoria franchise confirmed the news on their website www.thebulls.co.za, with the team doctor Org Strauss confirming the 25-year-old will undergo an operation today to rectify the problem. The Bulls play the Stormers in their next match and then travel to Australia for the away leg. Before that they have a bye on match-day five meaning the South Africa star could be back in action against the Highlanders on March 28 or the Crusaders a week later. Another Bulls player that was injured against their Gauteng rivals is Dewald Potgieter. The young flanker has been diagnosed with a sterno clavicular injury and faces a race against time to be fit for this week's game against the Stormers at Loftus Versfeld. *PA Sport
