Pretoria - Current Blue Bulls Team Manager Wynie Strydom will be leaving the union at the end of the year.

The Blue Bulls have, however, moved quickly to replace Strydom with new Super Rugby and Currie Cup Team Manager come 2014, Tim Dlulane.

Having represented both the Bulls and Blue Bulls and Springboks as a loose forward, Dlulane, 32, is well poised to take on the position of managing the first team.

Blue Bulls Company (BBC) CEO Barend van Graan looked forward to the new appointment.

Tim has been with us for many years in which time he has worked hard and smart. His dedication towards the BBC, relationship with players, organisational strength and knowledge of the game resulted in him being an obvious choice.”

Dlulane’s CV is an impressive one with qualifications in sports management, coaching and refereeing. In 2009 he participated in a Professional Athlete Mentorship training programme through the Gauteng Provincial Government. In 2009 and 2010, Dlulane worked with SA Rugby as the logistics manager for the South African Under-20 team.

Since January 2007, Dlulane has been employed as the Blue Bulls Junior High Performance Team Manager with responsibilities ranging from the management of budgets for Blue Bulls' Vodacom Cup team, and Blue Bulls Under-19 and 21 teams, procurement of equipment and apparel, and day to day organisation. Perhaps his greatest responsibility has been the co-ordination and management of the Blue Bulls Junior High Performance department consisting of 18 coaches, doctor, physiotherapists, biokineticists, masseuse and baggage master.

Dlulane looked forward to filling the boots of the departing Wynie Strydom.

“I have learnt so much from Wynie and look forward to continue with the current structures and powerful team ethic that is synonymous with the Blue Bulls family.”
