Bulls discard off to Japan
TRANSFER NEWS: The Blue Bulls confirmed that prop John-Roy Jenkins has been released from his contract to further his career in Japan.
The 27-year-old will join the Sanix Blues in Munakata, Fukuoka.
Jenkins has accumulated four Super Rugby caps since arriving at the Bulls in 2016. However, since the arrival of head coach John Mitchell in 2017, the prop has fallen by the wayside.
Jenkins played most of his youth rugby in Kwa-Zulu Natal and Potchefstroom, before going on to represent the Leopards and Free State Cheetahs at senior levels, ultimately joining the Blue Bulls in 2016.
Aside from his four Super Rugby caps, the humble soft spoken 27-year-old accumulated thirteen appearances for the Currie Cup and Challenge teams combined for the Bulls and Blue Bulls respectively.
