Bulls simply can't keep a secret
TRANSFER NEWS: The Bulls may just have let the cat out the bag with their latest teaser.
In a social media post, the Bulls said they will make a ‘BIG’ announcement on Monday, December 28.
The franchise teased the new arrival on Twitter, describing him as the “biggest festive gift” for the fan base.
However, social media posters were quick to point out who the new signing is.
It appears Springbok veteran Marcell Coetzee may be the man heading from Belfast in Ireland to Pretoria in South Africa.
While some readers bemoaned the fact that the 29-year-old Coetzee is turning his back on the Irish province, after the loyalty they showed him when he struggled with injuries, others expressed their delight with the impressive new loose trio the Bulls will field.
They could have World Cup-winning Bok Duane Vermeulen at No.8, Coetzee at No.7, a third Bok in Marco van Staden at No.6 – with two more Boks in Arno Botha and Nizaam Carr as back up.

Fantastic!! Duane at 8, Coetzee at 7, van Staden at 6, with Arno Botha & Nizaam Carr as back ups.
That has got to be the strongest non international loose trio in the world

Dreadful way for Ulster family to find out @UlsterRugby

Pretty poor timing to announce like this, given the loyalty that Ulster showed @marcell_coetzee throughout numerous injuries.
