    Bulls bolster forward stock

    2014-03-03 16:00
    Pretoria - The Bulls have confirmed that NNT Docomo loose forward, Wimpie van der Walt, has signed a short term contract with the three-time Super Rugby champions on Monday.

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

    According to the Bulls' 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
