    Retired Maku accepts off-field role at Bulls

    2016-12-02 10:55

    Cape Town - Bulls and Blue Bulls hooker Bandise Maku has announced his retirement from rugby, but he will continue working at the union as a Super Rugby franchise co-ordinator. 

    That role will see him cement the relationship between the Bulls and their three franchise partners: Boland, Border and the Pumas.

    The 30-year-old, who made his senior debut for the Blue Bulls in 2006, also had career stints with the Lions and EP Kings at both Super Rugby and Currie Cup levels, before returning to Loftus in 2013, where he filled a senior role in the team until his retirement this year. 

    The veteran hooker also had the honor of representing the Emerging Boks in two matches, and the Springboks in a Test match against Italy.  

    Barend van Graan, CEO of the Blue Bulls Company is excited about having a man of Maku’s caliber joining the support team.

    "Bandise has always been an exceptional rugby player and a man that has not only contributed on the field, but also to the overall brand with his positive energy and unspoken leadership skills," Van Graan said.

    "We are truly excited about having him join the support team at Loftus, and firmly believe that he will not only immensely contribute to the Vodacom Bulls but also to the game that he loves."
