Bulls snag exciting player from dethroned Kings
TRANSFER NEWS: The Blue Bulls Company confirmed the signing of the exciting and dynamic loose forward Elrigh Louw effective immediately.
The former Junior Springbok flank, who stands at 1.95m and weighing in at 112kg, sticked his hand up for the Southern Kings in the 2019/20 Pro14 before the COVID-19 pandemic put a hold on the global rugby season.

His signing further beefs up the Bulls’ loose forward stocks with the resumption of the domestic rugby season now within sight.
BBCo Director of Rugby, Jake White, expressed his delight in Louw’s signing as the franchise continues its preparation.
“We are delighted that Elrigh has agreed to join the Bulls Family as he is a young flank with a bright future,” said White .
“He has proven in the Pro14 that he can compete against the some of world rugby’s finest players, and not only has he held his own but excelled while at it.”
