Bulls bring in former Brumbies and Force utility back
TRANSFER NEWS: The Blue Bulls Company announced the signing of utility back James Verity-Amm who joins the Bulls from Griquas.
The 26-year-old joins the Bulls with immediate effect.
Verity-Amm attended Hottentots Holland High School in the Western Cape where he represented Western Province at junior level and the University of the Western Cape in the Varsity Shield.
In 2016, he made the long trip to Australia where he linked up with the Future Force Academy in Perth. It didn’t take long before the man with an affinity in finding the tryline got his opportunity with Western Force where he made his starting debut against the Lions in 2017’s Vodacom Super Rugby.
The deadly attacking threat has kept South African teams on their toes since returning from a short stint with the Brumbies, where he continuously kept opposition defences honest during the 2020 Super Rugby Unlocked and 2021 Currie Cup campaigns for the Peacock Blues.

Verity-Amm scored an amazing brace against the Bulls at Loftus late last year in the Unlocked tournament.
“James is a talented player who is rock solid on both attack and defence. His acquisition will only strengthen our backs and we are looking forward to adding a player of his ability to our roster,” said Bulls Director of Rugby, Jake White.
