Bulls hold onto exciting trio
NEWS: The trio of Johan Grobbelaar, Gerhard Steenekamp and Muller Uys have recommitted their playing futures with the Bulls as the franchise continues to build an electrifying squad under Director of Rugby, Jake White.
The young trio have already had a taste of Super Rugby action this season, before the COVID-19 pandemic put paid to competitive rugby.
Grobbelaar establish himself as a hooker for the Bulls junior teams with the 22-year-old Junior Springbok equally adept on the side of the scrum.
He made his Currie Cup debut in 2017 before earning a call up to Super Rugby in 2018 with the dynamic hooker amassing eight caps since.
Steenekamp made his Super Rugby debut off the bench against the Stormers this season and is in the unique position to be the understudy of two Springbok props in Trevor Nyakane and Lizo Gqoboka.
His powerful scrummaging ability is one of many skills as he has shown his immense mobility as a front rower and ball skills that could rival a backline player.
Uys stood up in last year’s SA Rugby Under-21 Championship as he led his team all the way to the final where they emphatically overthrew their Western Province counterparts to lift the silverware.
His prowess as a no.8 was rewarded this season as he made his starting Super Rugby debut against the Highlanders, followed by another scintillating performance against the Reds before the team had their Australasian tour cut short due to the current pandemic.
