Bulls flyhalf Fouche to play in Japan

Bulls flyhalf Louis Fouche has joined the ever growing list of Super Rugby players leaving South Africa and agreeing to play in Japan.

Fouche has signed a one year contract to play in Japan for the Ricoh Black Rams.

The flyhalf has had a difficult season with the Bulls as he was dropped in his second Super Rugby match and has fallen down in the selection order behind Jacques-Louis Potgieter and Handre Pollard.

Since his last Super Rugby match Fouche has played a handful of Vodacom Cup and chosen to play in Japan where he will get more game time.

Fouche has only signed a one year deal with the Rams and has the option of returning to South Africa for the 2015 Super Rugby season.

The flyhalf is the third person to leave the Bulls this week after lock Paul Willemse announced that he is moving to France to play for Grenoble while kicking consultant Vlok Cilliers is moving to the Stormers.

South African Super Rugby broadcasters SuperSport say thay winger Akona Ndungane is still negotiating his contract and hooker Bongi Mbonambi has not yet signed his contract and there is concern that he too may leave Pretoria.
