Spies is Bulls captain

The Blue Bulls have named Pierre Spies as their captain for the 2012 Super Rugby campaign.

Bok hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle was widely tipped to succeed Victor Matfield as Bulls skipper, but theLoftus brains trust have instead gone with a man boasting no senior captaincy experience in Spies. His deputy will be veteran centre Wynand Olivier.

Other potential captaincy candidates to be overlooked, presumably on the grounds that none of them is an assured starter, include flank Dewald Potgieter and lock Wilhelm Steenkamp.

Spies told the Blue Bulls website that “it was not such a big surprise though, as I had it in the back of my mind that I could be asked to lead the team when Victor retired. I was privileged in my career at the Bulls and the Springboks to play with great captains and I could certainly learn a lot from them.”

Chilliboy was not asked to comment, clearly… just another in the long line of Pretoria Boys High boys being shown that Affies will always be a step above in the Bulls pecking order!
