Saluting the 'Pretty in Purple' winners

We salute the ‘Pretty in Purple: Valentine’s Day special’ winners – who will now each be receiving a new Bulls ‘away’ jersey.

Carol Brassel and Muzi Msimango are the lucky readers who will soon be the proud owners of the dramatic new away kit that the Bulls team will sport in the 2012 Super Rugby competition.

The striking colour marks a significant image shift for the Bulls and is inspired by the purple Jacaranda trees that characterise their home-town of Pretoria.

The away shirt, as with the home shirt launched in December 2011, has a dramatic “smash” design inspired by the phrase “bull in a china shop” and expresses the Bulls’ powerful playing style. The complexity of the design, which combines a chevron-like effect, is designed to distract opposition players.

The Super Rugby replica away shirt will be available in stores on February 24 and will retail for R599.
