Springboks lock Botha set for comeback

Springboks lock Bakkies Botha will make his long-awaited return from injury for the Bulls in Saturday's Super 14 match against the Sharks.

Botha is set to play his first game since South Africa's win over Italy in a test last November after being named in the Bulls' second row on Wednesday.

The physical forward has been sidelined for nearly six months with an Achilles' heel injury and last played in the Super 14 in the Bulls' 2009 final win over the Waikato Chiefs.

Botha has replaced Danie Rossouw at No.4, one of five changes to the team that beat the Lions 51-11 last weekend.
