Bulls lure SA prop back from Ireland
TRANSFER NEWS: The Bulls have bolstered their front row stocks.
The Bulls confirmed the signing of Ulster prop Wiehahn Herbst, who has joined the team at Loftus on Monday.
The 31-year-old Klerksdorp High front row also played for the Sharks in Durban, racking up 40 Super Rugby caps between 2009 and 2014.
He then moved to Ulster where he spent the following six years.
Meanwhile, the Blue Bulls Company confirmed that Super Rugby head coach Pote Human has extended his contract for another year, with an option to renew.
Human took the reins early this year after the resignation of John Mitchell late last year and has led the Bulls to four impressive victories from a total of six games in this year’s competition thus far.
“It’s a massive honour to be entrusted with this role, especially knowing that I have the backing of the people around me,” said Human.
“It’s been a good start thus far, and I firmly believe that we are heading in the right direction as a team. However, there is a long season ahead with lots of work to be done, and I am excited to get on with things.
I’d also like to sincerely thank the BBCo [Blue Bulls Company] for believing in me and giving me this opportunity.”
