Bulls' Bok joins Euro giants
TRANSFER NEWS: Another Springbok is heading to Europe ahead of the British and Irish Lions tour.
The Bulls revealed on Wednesday that seven-times capped Springbok prop Marcel van der Merwe will be joining European giants La Rochelle.
The 30-year-old, who played the last of his Tests in 2015, will be joining the French outfit as a medical joker.
He will join fellow Boks Dillyn Leyds and Raymond Rhule at Stade Rochelais.
Another former Bulls player at La Rochelle is Wiaan Liebenberg, a member of the victorious 2012 Baby Bok team.
La Rochelle, currently second on the French Top 14 table behind Toulouse, has reached the European Cup semifinals and will host Irish giants Leinster in the last four.
