Bulls sign 'world-class' SA forward
TRANSFER NEWS: Explosive loose forward Cyle Brink is the latest addition to the Bulls’ squad.
The 27-year-old former Junior Springboks and Lions star player will be joining the Bulls from English side, Leicester Tigers.
Renowned as a barnstorming runner and an ace at the breakdown, Brink is expected to add depth and experience to a talented group of loose forwards at the Bulls.
“We are very happy to have secured the services of Cyle Brink,” Bulls Director of Rugby, Jake White, said.
“Cyle is an exceptionally gifted athlete who has proven himself as a world-class rugby player from his time at the Lions and now at Leicester Tigers in England over the past year.
“We have no doubt that he will add great value to the squad, both on and off the field, and will equally contribute with his stellar performances, experience and leadership qualities. We look forward to seeing him in the blue jumper.”
Blue Bulls Rugby Union president Willem Strauss added: “Injuries prohibited Cyle from probably becoming a Springbok in 2018.
“If he stays injury free, he will be a massive contributor!”
