    Bulls go green for Reds clash

    2019-04-10 16:12

    Pretoria - The Bulls have teamed up with South African National Parks (SANParks) and Wild Card to create awareness about the extraordinary effort that the rangers put in on a daily basis.

    These unsung heroes will be honoured at their next home Super Rugby match against the Reds on Saturday, April 13.

    The men from Pretoria will play in their green away strip, a design by their apparel sponsor PUMA that pays tribute to SANParks, and in so doing, will further drive home their commitment to what SANParks do. 

    SANParks CEO Fundisile Mketeni says that support from one of the biggest sports teams in South Africa will go a long way in creating awareness for conservation and our men and women in green.

    Several SANParks rangers will be in attendance at the game and will also walk a lap of honour.

    Bulls captain Handre Pollard stated, "This cause is close to the player's hearts and that they will rise to occasion to honour our rangers who put their lives on the line to protect our heritage."

    "There is nothing better for South Africans to experience than to spend time at one of our many national parks and our enjoyment of this would not be possible without the excellent work that SANParks does.

    "We love playing in front of our supporters in the hallowed Bulls jersey and we will have the privilege of facing the Reds with some of SANParks rangers in attendance which serves as extra motivation to play our best game."

    There will be activities for our loyal supporters to enjoy on the day and those that do attend are urged to wear their green Bulls jersey, something green.

    SANParks would not be able to do what they do without the generosity of the public with donations being able to be made on their website, www.sanparks.org, or by sending an SMS to 40401 at a cost of R20.

    Saturday's Bulls v Reds clash is scheduled for 17:15.
