Bulls lose Pottie for good (and maybe Chilli too)

News out of Pretoria this morning (it seems our friends at Beeld actually do have a clue what goes on in that city) is that Bulls and Bok loose forward Jacques Potgieter will not be returning to play Super Rugby there after his up-coming stint in Japan.

Conceding that he has fallen out of favour with coach Frans Ludeke, and that more game time is paramount, Potgieter has requested (and been granted) a release from his Bulls contract and will head to the UK to join an as-yet unknown English club at the end of the Japanese season.

Meanwhile, Brenden Nel, writing for SuperSport, reports that hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle, understandably also frustrated with his lack of opportunity at Bok level, is being courted by both Toulouse and Toulon in France, with a massive offer from each club currently on the table. As Nel reported some weeks ago, budgetary issues in Pretoria, caused in no small part by the Bulls’ insistence on contracting at least three junior players in each position every year, are making it harder for new HP Manager Xander Janse van Rensburg to balance the books, resulting in difficulties when it comes to retaining players of Ralepelle’s calibre.

Ag shame, we all sigh in unison!
