'Camo' Bulls do away with pink
Cape Town - The Bulls will play their away matches during next year's Super Rugby competition wearing different colours.VIDEO: Bulls unveil new jersey!
The Pretoria-based franchise played their away games wearing pink over the last few seasons - something which upset many of their die hard fans who believed the colour was not appropriate for their image.
However, from next year they will wear an army-style camouflage of khaki, green and brown for away games.
For home games, they will wear a blue camouflage kit.
PUMA, the Bulls kits sponsors, designed the jersey playing on the fact that ‘camo’ is designed to make you invisible.
Blue Bulls Company CEO, Barend van Graan, said: “PUMA have certainly transformed the pace since their arrival at the Bulls and the team feels that new away khaki green and brown jersey, a complete contrast from our old-style kit, is a bold statement towards distinctiveness.” Akona Ndungane, Pierre Spies, Bjorn Basson and Francois Hougaard sport the Bulls' new away kit (Picture: Nelio de Sa - Twitter)Francois Hougaard and Pierre Spies in the Bulls' respective new home and away jerseys.
