Bulls sign Losper

In an effort to boost their depleted fullback stocks the Blue Bulls last week signed 21-year-old Namibian Tertius Losper on a two-year deal.

Losper joins the side after the Bulls’ veteran number fifteen Johan Roets announced his retirement earlier this month and back-up full-back Stefan Basson signed a two-year contract with Italian club Rovigo.

The youngster, who was in high demand during the World Cup in France, will compete with former Griquas players Tiger Mangweni and Zane Kirchner for the Bulls No.15 jersey.

Losper, who has often played at fly-half, has played seven Tests for Namibia and is a dynamic player with a strong boot and plenty of flair.

He attended Hoogenhout Primary and HTS Windhoek and played for Namibia in the Under-19 World Cup which was held in Durban in 2004, and after matriculating enrolled at the Griquas’ Rugby Academy, where he played for the Union’s under 21-team as well as the amateur side.

His father, Sarel, is Namibia’s most-capped player in history having played on the flank and as a lock for his country in the late eighties and early nineties. He has also been the manager of the Namibian side.
