More Bulls players hint at exits

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s news about the Lions’ alleged interest in Bakkies Botha, JJ Harmse, who is very close to the Bulls camp, today reports that a slew of other players may also be eying Loftus exits at the end of the year.

Veteran scrumhalf Fourie du Preez has already confirmed that he will join Eddie Jones at Suntory in Japan after the World Cup. Lock forward Danie Rossouw, though, looks set to join the pair there and Jones was reportedly in South Africa last week to thrash out last-minute details with the big Bull.

France looks likely to be another popular destination for retiring Bulls, with hooker Gary Botha and prop Gurtho Steenkamp both linked to Toulouse and said to be in advanced stages of negotiation there. Wynand Olivier is also said to be in discussions with Bayonne, a club who showed interest in the player back in 2007, before he signed a long-term Bulls deal. Perhaps more worrying is the talk that a younger player, wing Gerhard van den Heever, is apparently considering an offer to sign for an Australian team. While the Bulls would be expecting to lose a number of their veterans at the end of the year, it’s players like van den Heever who should form the basis of their longer-term succession plan.

Meanwhile, with a number of other players coming off contract soon, don’t be too surprised to see a number of other up-and-coming stars lured by big money offers to cross the Jukskei.
