2014-01-29 15:13

Pretoria - AFGRI Limited (“AFGRI”), the leading South African agricultural services and diversified foods group, on Wednesday announced their active participation in the sponsorship of Blue Bulls rugby in South Africa.

Chris Venter, CEO of AFGRI, said at an official Blue Bulls Company press conference that AFGRI is pleased to be associated with a winning culture.

Blue Bulls CEO Barend van Graan is pleased to welcome AFGRI on board.

“I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the AFGRI team to the Vodacom Bulls family. We look forward to working with you both on the field and off as we strive to grow and improve the game on a professional level as well as community development level by creating opportunities for young rugby players.”

AFGRI draws its history in South Africa back 90 years and so too the Blue Bulls are no strangers to transformation, tenacity and a fighting spirit.

The Blue Bulls hold no less than 23 Currie Cup titles in South Africa and three titles in the Super Rugby competition which has been in place since 1996.

  • Chris de Beer - 2014-01-29 15:19

    "AFGRI is pleased to be associated with a winning culture." This man knows his rugby. Very wise choice made.

      Trokkie Datsun - 2014-01-29 15:28

  • Genio Deporte - 2014-01-29 15:24

    Hopefully the Bulls will give them the publicity that they need and in turn they will supply the Bulls with funds to further expand their union. Can only help the Bulls.

      Genio Deporte - 2014-01-29 16:48

      You're basing that prediction on?

      Albertus Lombaard - 2014-01-29 18:54

  • Trokkie Datsun - 2014-01-29 15:27

    "AFGRI is pleased to be associated with a winning culture" Have AFGRI watched the rugby lately? What a joke

      Genio Deporte - 2014-01-29 15:28

      dono - 2014-01-29 18:16

      Raisin we have only won a total of 8 starting with naasholes class of 1990. Talk about not knowing much about rugby.

      dono - 2014-01-29 18:20

      Jaycee, raisin will never take that chip off her shoulder, it's her cross to bear and so it should be, considering how the previous regime treated her and her Bantu people. Khululeka raisin, one day at a time. Sharp sharp

      Albertus Lombaard - 2014-01-29 18:58

      Once again, what the vuk is this RAA aap trying to say?

      dono - 2014-01-29 20:52

      Raisin I school you in chirps daily. Blou job koning I counted 1990 twice cos naasholes face crumpling in utter disbelief as the banana boys thrashed you mofs was worth a double.

  • Chrono Man - 2014-01-29 15:39

    They're also negotiating with Phonak, Specsavers and Grandpa.

  • Orrin Mark Faulmann - 2014-01-29 16:58

  • Albertus Lombaard - 2014-01-29 19:08

    I smaak the " three super koppies" part. I bet that wannabe cell company and that other fly by night transport outfit would love to include at least " winner of one super koppie" in their sponsorship logo. Chokers just like the teams they sponsor....

    Danville *Jy weet jy is in Danville as jou girl se ouma verwag. *As 'n Danviller verby n dam loop gooi die eende vir hom brood. *Hoe vind 'n Danviller sy sussie in die donker? Blerri lekker. *In Danville kan hulle net tot 3 tel: 1L Brandewyn, 2L Coke, 3L Cortina. *6uur in die aand sluit die Danvillers hulle kinders in die huis toe sodat die honde buite kan speel. *Danville pickup line: “Ek weet jy's nie 'n klip nie maar kan ek jou maar gooi?” ...... *..... of: “Hey koekie, gaan jy buk of kan ek jou maar trip?” *Kan iemand asb. vir die Danvillers die verskil tussen sneeu en kokaïne verduidelik.. julle is nie op 'n trip nie, dis brain freeezzzz!! *In Danville loop die honde in pare, hulle is bang die kinders byt. *As 'n Danviller die lotto wen...sit hy Ferrari mags op sy Cortina. *Hoe weet jy iemand kom van Danville af? As hy dink "fast food" is om 'n rooibok op 150km/h met sy Cortina te slaan. *Die deurmekaarste dag op Danville is vadersdag. *Danvillers se huise lyk almal dieselfde; Die vensters is getint en fondasies is gedrop. *Wat is die verskil tussen 'n Danville girl en 'n muskiet? As jy ? muskiet klap hou hy op suig. *Danville girls is goedkoper as ‘please call me's’. *Jy weet jy's in Danville as die kinders dink Jack Daniels is familie. *Hulle sê dat Danvillers so arm is dat hulle die kinders op die grasperk laat k*k sodat die diewe kan dink daar is waghonde op die erf. *Party Danvillers laat weer die hoenders in die sitkamer k*k om die grasperk skoon te hou.

      Hans Oosthuizen - 2014-01-29 20:23

      Ek het gedink die fake nurse bly in Danville en speel met sy matchbox Ferrari.

      Hans Oosthuizen - 2014-01-29 22:28

      Nurse, is jy ook so confused soos die res van jou maatjies op Vadersdag in jou dorpie?

      Hans Oosthuizen - 2014-01-30 06:44

      So nurse, jy is Danville se eie Steve Hofmeyr. Die girls is dan ook seker in die model karretjies storie in. Mooi so..

    The Bulls have a winning culture : Hougaard won a modeling contract Spies won a weightlifting competition Jurgen Visser won a "snoek lookalike" competition Bjorn Basson won a dads and kids race at the local primary school . He was later disqualified as the dad and the child had to be 2 separate people Deon Steggman won free movie tickets to see The Hobbit (later discovered that they gave it to him cause he was mistaken for the lead actor) Winning culture, yeah sure. but since 2010 to date they are only know as having a export culture
