Sadie could quit Bulls - report

2012-07-19 16:53

Cape Town - Bulls centre Johann Sadie could leave the Pretoria-based union after asking to be released from his contract, according to

Sadie has had an indifferent season since joining from the Stormers at the end of last year. He has struggled to hold down a spot in the Bulls' 22-man squad after a season plagued by injury and a dip in form.

The Bulls management have apparently given the 23-year-old their blessing to “look at other options” ahead of a possible release from his contract. It is believed he's unhappy with the lack of game time he has received this season.

This is quite a turn in fortunes for the former Paarl Gymnasium pupil. In February this year he said he felt a "stronger, fitter and mentally tougher" player since joining the Bulls from the Stormers.

"Everything has changed since I came to the Bulls 13 weeks ago.

"Things are done a lot differently here than at the Stormers and each of the regions have their own culture.

"I don't really want to make comparisons but what I can say is that I never realised what my body and mind were capable of before I joined the Bulls. I didn't realise one could be pushed so far (to the limit)," he said at the time.

      @isak, die dronk tor Soos julle beker op beker op beker die laaste 11 jaar gewen het. Pragtige voorbeeld wat julle is

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-19 17:42

      hated the fact sadie was coming to the bulls from the beginning and he proved how useless he is very quickly - i dont know what they were thinking when buying him. engelbrecht is the man though.

      sportmal.legrangemarais - 2012-07-19 17:50

      @Isak, As much as I enjoy your undying love and support for Province and Stormers rugby, being a WP supporter myself, let's be honest with each other, we can't claim to be the team winning all the cups in SA, Vodacom cup was nothing more than a good foundation for the future and the conference cup didn't even mean anything to the players and coaches, so until we have 3 superrugby titles we can't be making these types of statements. However, I still LOVE WP/STORMERS!!

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-19 18:05

      mongo visser. i feel nothing but pity for her

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-19 18:10

      sadie is over rated, he doesnt even hit rucks

      " BEKERS wen" ..Mr Potato head has really gone off the deep end

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-19 18:24

      mr potato head...perfect description! sign sealed delivered.

      steyts - 2012-07-19 20:07

      He's leaving because the Bulls bought about 20 centres this year from all over the country, and 5 flyhalves and 1000 other players in the hope that 15 of them might beat the MIGHTY STORMERS!!!!!!!!!

      sean.lambie.3 - 2012-07-20 00:38

      @steyts - Win something , then you talk !! Mighty ??? Mighty f@kkol yet !!

  • johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-19 16:58

    Hy's net eenvoudig nie goed genoeg vir Bulls rugby waar daar al 3 Superbekers gewen is nie. Maak maar soos Habana en gaan retire in die Kaap, word lekker vet soos Jason op die blog en vergeet van ooit 'n regte beker wen Bye bye

      John - 2012-07-19 16:59

      johan.spies.18 - 2012-07-19 17:13

    "I don't really want to make comparisons but what I can say is that I never realised what my body and mind were capable of before I joined the Bulls. I didn't realise one could be pushed so far (to the limit)," It's because we don't have time for sissies at the Bulls. Man up or go play for Province!!!!!

      Stirrer - 2012-07-19 17:21

      "we don't have time for sissies at the Bulls" - what's with the pink kit, then?

      tokolos.tokkie - 2012-07-19 17:31

      Stirrer... A kit is a kit. It does not matter if it's pink, blue, white or green. It's the man inside the kit that makes the difference. He is a softie and cannot handle the pressure at the Bulls.... and you guys groomed him into being this "wonder boy". It says much of your way of training down there hey!!! You need to come learn from the toughest and the best in the sport. Toughen up or look for a contract at the Stompies Sadie!!!

      charl.stander.14 - 2012-07-19 20:02

      DUH ?? Bulletjies se neuse is 2 keer in grond gevryf in een seisoen deur die eintste Province !!

  • michael.casteling - 2012-07-19 17:30

    with all the players the Bulls have signed, this will happen over and over again with players not getting game time they want and end up leaving go stormers!!!

      John - 2012-07-19 17:44

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-19 17:44

      jj rose to the top and sadie has to go to the stormers. i dont care if he was from there, he now has to go back because he is sh*t

      bfvillet - 2012-07-19 21:07

      tom JJ is a wing and doesn`t need to hit rucks and thats why he will leave

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-19 21:13

      Jj hits enough rucks

  • melt.esterhuizen - 2012-07-19 17:59

    Daar was so n paar maande n groepie wat vir Sadie "vervloek" het omdat hy n veraaier is? Ek dink dit was meer teleurstelling as iets anders. As ek reg kan onthou het Meyer in persoon aan Sadie beloof hy sal die no 1 senter by die Bulle wees.....natuurlik was dit na n deeglike evalueering deur die manne in Blou/ Pienk. Gedurig moet ons hoor dat die Bulle jong talent raaksien en dan van hulle goeie rugbyspelers maak ?......en nou? Bulle julle het gevaal, erken dit vergeet van Sadie en beweeg aan. JJ doen goed , maar is hy werklik gelukkig....tyd sal leer. Pollard ......Hatting en kie....ons sal julle vordering by die Bulle met belangstelling volg. G

      bfvillet - 2012-07-19 20:52

      jj is n wing hy gaan ook loop

  • donovan.hendricks.7 - 2012-07-19 18:53

    Soos die bulle deesdae aangaan, gaan hulle die ondergang wees van menige jong belowende spelers se rugbyloopbane.They are biting off far more then they can chew.bloubul land het altyd in die verlede goeie spelers opgelewer,wat gaan dan deesdae aan dat hulle so gulsig koop? Smaak my hulle is baie 'insecure' deesdae,of lyk my die klomp dronk pretoriaanse'Jemtone' hou meer van wen as van seks.

  • rufuss1 - 2012-07-19 19:17

    As dit moeilik gaan by die Bulls is dit geen happy camp nie. In Pretoors is daar ongelukkig nie wyn, visvang, strande, regte berge, ens. om jou aandag af te lei en te ontspan nie.

  • steven.loots.33 - 2012-07-19 19:33

    Tom wat se Mallet.

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-19 20:21

      Mallet said the stormers will win the s15 and Sadie doesn't hit rucks

  • luvo.luvos - 2012-07-19 20:09

    Yeah I know how it feels like. Its like changing jobs. You move from a job where you were well appreciated and onto a job where your presence or opinion matters not. You even wonder why they hired you in the first place.

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-19 20:27

      Yes and for u that was moving from garbage collection to toilet cleaning

  • bfvillet - 2012-07-19 20:40

  • bidi.barett - 2012-07-19 21:34

    good bye sadie. Thanx for leaving. We've got better centres anyway. I hope this report is true

  • heinrich.vanjaarsveld.52 - 2012-07-19 21:52

    Geluk kings hoor sadie gaan na julle kom kies hom ook op die bank of vra hom net water aan te dra hy te swak kan nie pressure handle nie weet nie wat dit verg om op die hoogste vlak te speel nie gebruik jul 40mil om hom te leer hoe om waterboy te speel

      Izak - 2012-07-19 22:12

      Aan tommy, johan spies, charlie en al die ander kinderagtige pienk koeie, ek is so bly dat julle more oggend weer inboek by die kleuterskool, of by Boswell wilkie sirkus as die hoof narre! Dit is regtig wat julle is! Ta Ta pienk koeie!

  • Ashley - 2012-07-19 22:20

    Sadie you did not perform. unlucky with injuries. Why don't you fight 4 your spot. If you don't work hard, don't expect any favours. Nothing in life is certain. If thats your attitude, then you won't succeed where ever you go...GROW UP...

  • francois.v.eeden.3 - 2012-07-19 22:52

    die klong moet net vasbyt en uithou, mense vandag gee te vinnig op, geen deursettings vermoens nie...hys talentvol, maar dis nie genoeg nie. JJ Engelbrecht aan die anderkant speel die veld aan die brand en niemand het iets gese toe hy by die bulle aangesluit het nie...Sadie het baie talent, maar hy moet vasbyt en deurdruk.

  • maakdiebulle.almalbokke - 2012-07-20 07:10

    Running with the Bulls, not that easy hey? You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting

  • haydn.gawronsky - 2012-07-20 08:35

    To all you fools saying Stormers/WP must win something please note that WP has won more Currie Cups than ANY other side, all sides go through rebuilding and tough times, the wheels they turn! Stormers/WP are coming back again! Bulls are going to hit a slump and then it'll turn again....

      quite down pollak

  • jjskosana - 2012-07-20 08:54
