Luke Watson gets lifeline at Bulls
Cape Town - Former Kings and Springbok loose forward Luke Watson’s career received a shock lifeline on Friday, April 1 after he signed a short-term Super Rugby deal at the Bulls.
Watson’s career has been in limbo recently after not receiving a contract from SA Rugby to play for the Kings in this year’s tournament.
The 32-year-old Watson, who has struggled with injuries over the last few seasons, was one of the Kings players not offered a contract by SA Rugby and it appeared his career was over.
However, a reliable source confirmed to Sport24 that the Pretoria-based franchise said they'd be "foolish" to turn down Watson.
The official announcement is expected to be confirmed no later than 12:00 on Friday, April 1.
Watson, a former Stormers and Bath player, played 10 Tests for the Springboks between 2007 and 2008.
