Bulls name 46-man Super Rugby squad

Bulls name 46-man Super Rugby squad

Pretoria – The Bulls have named 46 players in their Super Rugby squad for the 2017 season, including injured skipper Adriaan Strauss and new signings Johnny Kotze (Stormers), Jacques Potgieter (Sharks) and Conraad van Vuuren (Free State Cheetahs).
A lot of the players have experienced Super Rugby last season for the first time, so they will have a much better understanding of what to expect.
Bulls coach, Nollis Marais, is excited about the season and expressed happiness with the squad.
Potgieter, who re-joins the Bulls after stints with the Waratahs, Sharks and Japan’s Sanix Blues, is one of 12 Springboks in the squad, with Namibian international, Renaldo Bothma, adding further international experience.
Strauss (132 matches) is by far the most experienced player in the squad, with Trevor Nyakane (70), and Piet van Zyl (68) the only other players past 50 caps.

Who’s who in Super Rugby

Who’s who in Super Rugbyby Tony Johnson 15/02/2017, 09:36 TweetAs Super Rugby approaches, it’s time to scan the landscape, and try and catch up with who’s gone where, who’s going to feature, and who might flounder.
Back to back titles aren’t unheard of in Super Rugby, and it’s not beyond them to do it again.
They only managed four wins last year, and while the CC triumph is heart warming, it’s never been a great pointer to Super Rugby success.
Personally I think it’s an important foray for Super Rugby and of the bottom three teams from last year, they’re the ones I’d least like to see go.
It’s just a shame the selfishness of the industrial giants who own the established Japan clubs is holding the Sunwolves back, because with more investment they could be a meaningful player in Super Rugby, and Japanese rugby on the whole would benefit.
