    Bulls join scrap for Van Zyl

    2013-07-01 10:30
    Cape Town - The Bulls are reportedly also after the services of Springbok and Cheetahs scrumhalf Piet van Zyl.

    According to a report on the SowetanLIVE website, Van Zyl - who made his Springbok debut against Scotland a few weeks ago - could join the Pretoria-based franchise after the completion of this year's Super Rugby competition.

    He is yet to conclude terms, but will likely fill the void left by France-bound Jano Vermaak.

    This news comes after Die Burger last week reported that Western Province were also interested in singing the livewire 23-year-old.

    WP and Stormers coach Allister Coetzee at the time denied the report, but admitted they need a new scrumhalf in the Cape.

    "I don't know where that information comes from. Agents could possibly have spoken to Rob (Wagner, Stormers CEO).

    "It's the silly season and it does not necessarily mean that players are coming to Cape Town.

    "I will only say so if it is in black and white.

    "But I must obviously look where I can replace players like Bryan Habana, Andries Bekker and Dewaldt Duvenage who will definitely be leaving," said Coetzee.
