    According to the Rugby365 website, Hattingh, 21, who joined the Lions on a short-term Vodacom Super Rugby deal earlier this season, confirmed his trans-Jukskei move on both Facebook and Twitter on Thursday.

    "Anyone got a place for me to stay in Pretoria?......or know of anyone pls let me know!!!!shot," Hattingh wrote on his Facebook page.

    Soon thereafter on his Twitter page he wrote: "Nervous but exited! will be spending the next 2 and a half years in Pretoria! Bulls is great union!"

    With uncertainly over the Lions' future in Super Rugby, Hattingh joins a growing lists of departures from Johannesburg. Centre Doppies la Grange has signed to play in Italy and wing Michael Killian has confirmed he will join up with the Southern Kings.

    Hattingh played age-group rugby for Western Province between 2009 and 2011 and also represented Maties in the 2011 and 2012 Varsity Cups.

    Hattingh attended Kingswood College and has played lock, flank and No 8.
