    Meyer to return to Bulls in 2016?

    Cape Town - Could Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer possibly return to the Bulls after this year’s Rugby World Cup?

    READ: Ludeke to get a promotion at Bulls?

    According to the website, the South African Rugby Union (SARU) has not offered Meyer an extension of his contract beyond the current Rugby World Cup.

    While talks are ongoing at SARU about Meyer’s future, it is understood the Bulls would be happy to return him and his management team to Loftus Versfeld if he doesn’t continue as Bok coach.

    The future of current Bulls coach Frans Ludeke appears uncertain after the men from Pretoria again failed to reach the Super Rugby playoffs.

    Ludeke has a contract with the Bulls until October 2016, but there are rumours he could be relieved of his coaching duties, while there is also talk of Ludeke being promoted to Director of Rugby.

    How Meyer would come into the picture remains an open question, but his availability would in all likelihood depend on how well the Boks perform in 2015, and whether Meyer has his Bok contract extended.
