Bulls sign former Southern Kings flanker

The Bulls have bolstered their loose forward stocks with the signing of former EP, Southern Kings and NNT Docomo loose forward Wimpie van der Walt on a short term contract.

The 25 year old player, who represented the Southern Kings in the Super Rugby tournament in 2013, will join the Bulls on a two month loan contract.

According to the BBC’s High Performance Manager, Xander Janse van Rensburg, the contract could be extended, depending on Van der Walt’s performances and fitness levels.

“It is no secret that injuries have ravaged our loose forward stock and we are quite keen for Wimpie to join us as soon as possible. He had a stellar season with the Kings last year and will not only add versatility, but also depth to our squad.”

Janse van Rensburg also confirmed that former Bulls player and captain, Dewald Potgieter, could join Van der Walt this week as negotiations on his availability are in an advanced stage.

Potgieter plays for the Japanese club Yamaha Jubilo and could join the team till after the completion of the Bulls pool stage phase. He then has to return for his pre – season with the Japanese club in July.

“We are hopeful that Dewald can join us. He is used to our structures and will fit in immediately,” Janse Van Rensburg said.
