New Under 19 group welcomed to Loftus

It’s always a special time of year at Loftus, not only due to the return of the senior team after a well deserved break, but also because we get to welcome one of our future generations.

The new group of Under 19’s assembled on Monday 6 January at Loftus for their official welcome to the Vodacom Blue Bulls family. Various members of the management team addressed the youngsters, together with the parents, at a very uplifting and inspiring orientation function.

President of the BBRU, Louis Nel, welcomed all in attendance and reaffirmed to the boys that they were in good hands, referring to the well-accomplished junior coaching staff. While Dr Eugene Hare, CEO of the BBRU, motivated the players by assuring them that the future the Bulls brand was in their hands… “Be the ones to leave footprints that others will follow…”

The youngsters were also captivated as Xander Janse van Rensburg, high performance manager of the BBCo, took them through a few awe-inspiring video clips and stories that would certainly be enough to make even seasoned professionals feel a little more special.

“…if you always do what you have done, you will always get what you got…” – These wise words were structured to show the boys that it’s time to get out of their comfort zones and take the next step in their careers.

    Welkom al die jong manne! Ek sien hier is nog tandpyne op die nuwe webblad. Jurgen Visser is regtig te lank en maer om n hakker te wees.

    Nuwwe week, nuwwe uitdagens. Sterkte met julle voorbereiding BULLE !!!!
  7. Ek sukkel om van hierdie formaat te hou. Maar as mens wil deelneem is dit seker fit in or ......
  8. gravatar blou.sakkie says:
    Wanneer gaan ons weet of Matfield en Hougaard gaan speel of nie?
  9. gravatar Bloukaap says:
    Baie "besige" website hierdie. Less is more!
  10. gravatar Bloukaap says:
    Matfield gaan defnitief speel vir die Bulle maar steeds in afrigtingskapasiteit ook waarneem. Hy sal vir eers stadig ingemessel word waarskynlik van die bank af.

    Oor Hougaard het ek net idees, maar daar is noh niks geskryf nie.
  11. More BULLE.

    Kan iemand my dalk help. Is daar 'n ikoon wat mens kan kliek om te registreer want om elke keer jou hele pedigree in te sit as jy kommentaar wil lewer gaan lastig wees. Not to mention die "type the text" besigheid. Daar moet tog seer sekerlik 'n makliker manier wees
  12. Dit is van al die negatiewe kommentaar en naamskending dat die forum nou die formaat aangeneem het Bloubefoeterd. Alles moet eers goedgekeur word.
