    French interest in Bulls lock

    2014-06-19 10:20
    Cape Town - French Top 14 club Grenoble are reportedly hunting the services of promising Bulls lock Paul Willemse.

    According to the Beeld website, there are rumours that he could leave the Bulls after the completion of this year's Super Rugby competition.

    The Bulls though insisted that the 21-year-old Willemse would play for them in the Currie Cup later this year.

    Their High Performance Manager, Xander Janse van Rensburg, said Willemse is contracted to the union until after the Currie Cup.

    "Paul will be important for us during the Currie Cup competition and we won't let him go before then. There was also no such request."

    It remains to be seen though if the Bulls will fight to keep the services of Willemse once the Currie Cup is completed.
