2012-11-20 15:20

Cape Town - Centre Wynand Olivier will return from Japan to play for the Bulls in next year's Super Rugby competition.

The Springbok joined Japanese club Ricoh Black Rams at the end of July this year which saw him miss the Currie Cup season.

Bulls coach Frans Ludeke was elated to secure Olivier's services for next year.

      braam.groenewald.39 - 2012-11-20 15:49

      jip snaaks hoe Olivier al meer super champ drie'e gedruk het as wat die stormers die laaste 2 jaar kon.

      simone.dechandra.7 - 2012-11-20 15:57

      liesure.larry - 2012-11-20 16:35

      Good News for the Boks... Maybe the back-line will break the line when they include him in the next tournament...

      liesure.larry - 2012-11-20 16:55

      liesure.larry - 2012-11-20 17:23

      Die enigste rede hoekom JdJ sidestep is om sy k** te sidestep poppie...

      chris.groenewald.56 - 2012-11-20 18:52

      Larry,Bulle se kas is leeg.....eish ma swak? Hulle moet maar delf in die geskiedenis om te kan saampraat. By the way Bulls het nog nooit S15 gewen.

      liesure.larry - 2012-11-20 19:29

      Chris why bring the Bulls into this if we referring to certain people? I can't care less if the Bulls won 3 Super Cups and the Stormers NONE, but it must be of utmost importance to you as you are referring to your first cup in 11 years.. Ag Shame.. between us i don't support any provincial team but i do Support SA Rugby... hence me thinking that WO is better that JdJ...

  • she.is.here.777 - 2012-11-20 15:41

    He is too concerned about his image (hairdo) than what's happening on the field no need to worry weepee!

      simone.dechandra.7 - 2012-11-20 16:51

      Matfield and now Olivier. The fear is palpable from the wp contingent of whiners

      she.is.here.777 - 2012-11-20 17:00

      Al wat hy nou nog kort is 'n Jakaranda blommetjie in sy kuif dan gaan hy leke kief lyk vir die TV en al die virgins.

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-11-21 00:19

      simone. The Bulls are al longing for the good old days that happened in the previous decade. That is why Heineken is also trying to play last decade's gameplan. And look how that's helping him. The rest of the SA teams are not afraid. Everyone has moved on. We'll take the Bulls serious again when they are dragged into the new decade.

      omge.klits - 2012-11-21 21:50

      Chrisi s in Oz - Had to change underpants when you got the news ? The WP's next 11 year cycle starts now . . . ..

  • lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-11-20 15:50

    Return of the Karate Kid:):):)

  • Arche' van Rensburg - 2012-11-20 16:03

    i also think that the japanese league is very weak and soft compared to the super15 and currie cup!! so wynand might not be as strong / fit / good as he was a year ago when he played against tougher competition!!

      simone.dechandra.7 - 2012-11-20 17:38

      Nothing that a bit of tresseme can't fix

  • wesley.rousseau.58 - 2012-11-20 16:28

    let me guess, he'll walk straight back into the bok side

      simone.dechandra.7 - 2012-11-20 16:53

      Of course, because the majority of the Bok team are bulls

      she.is.here.777 - 2012-11-20 16:53

      Hoe dan nou anders Hein is sy pal? Wag, ou Vickie gaan nog boks forward coach word maar Hein het gesê hy moet eers bietjie gaan "ervaring" opbou anders gaan daar te veel vrae gevra word...

      stopwp.stroont - 2012-11-20 21:46

      Best man for the job??

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-11-21 00:10

      Simone. Just tell us which Bull in the Bok team is there on merit?

  • riaan.crouse1 - 2012-11-20 17:42

    WO is only a shadow of J (side step koning) DJ.

      stompies.hattingh.5 - 2012-11-20 18:30

      My vriend, Wynand het 61 driee gedruk vir die BB's (en hys nog nie klaar nie!) Noem jy dit 'n skaduwee van JdJ? Dink bietjie tweekeer voor jy (en die ander wp - wynand haters) jou naam gat maak! Boonop het hy dit wat JdJ nog van verdediging moet leer, lankal vergeet!

      stompies.hattingh.5 - 2012-11-20 20:12

      daspoort, dis nou 'n regte daspoort antwoord

      stopwp.stroont - 2012-11-20 22:03

      @daspoort- "...kan jy vir my se hoeveel van Wynand se driee was agv lynbreke of individuele briljantheid deur homself?" jaaa ek kan presies se'... dit is 61 driee van die 61 driee en ons praat ni eers van die 500 briljante driee wat hy gemaak het ni- het jy dit haasdas?? gaan klim nou terug in jou poort... @riaan- al skaduwee wat ou klonkie de jongh voor hom sien is olie&vuur se volgende 61 driee?? wat 'n fantastiese speler, wat 'n fantasties gentleman van rugby en dan nog di hoop prestasies agter sy naam, wat geen ander senter in SA of wereld rugby het ni??

  • jean.rossouwsa - 2012-11-20 18:15

    Yes baby!!! hulle kan se wat hulle wil! BB het 3 julle het 0!

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-11-21 00:08

      3 wat? 3 bekers van 'n kompetisie wat nie eers meer bestaan nie? Shame. Dis omdat die Bulle so ver in die verlede lewe dat hulle nerens kom nie. Seker ook die rede hoekom Olivier weer terug is in Tshwane.

  • chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-11-20 23:16

    That means the Bulls can kiss another CC and another S15 title good-bye. How many years will that make now?

      stompies.hattingh.5 - 2012-11-21 09:43

      chrisin - and the stormers have never even kissed a S15 cup, so they cant "kiss it good-bye"!

  • chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-11-21 00:23

    Kyk na daai foto: Meisiekind se daar vir de Jongh: Hi, stop, staan stil. Ek wil jou tackle.
