The Vodacom Bulls team of 2014 will be full of new and youthful energy, but it will be a team very aware of the winning culture that has made the Pretoria side the most successful local team in the last decade of the Vodacom Super Rugby competition.

According to the Vodacom Bulls captain, Pierre Spies, there will be constant reminders to the achievements of the past, which saw the Bulls winning this coveted title three times and play in numerous semi-finals, the last of which was in 2013.

“We have lost a number of senior players and that was not ideal, but the benefit of that is that a new energy and heaps of young potential has now come into the side,” Spies told Pieter Jordaan of Rapport.

“It is nice to work with youngsters that are so keen to learn. It is a benefit not always appreciated.”

On a personal level, Spies indicated that he is well rested after a torn bicep ruled him out of rugby since June 2013.
“I am certainly well rested en managed to spend a lot of time with the family. The downside of injury is that you miss out on actually playing rugby. I am hungry to play and want to use all that energy and motivation in 2014,” he said.

Spies will not only have to inspire the younger players, but will have to make sure that the more experienced players in his side fire as well.
Despite this responsibility, he wants to enjoy the game in 2014.
“Hopefully I will be able to enjoy my rugby this year, but make no mistake, I will still try to be the best player in my position. Rugby is all about constantly improving your game,” he said.

“So I will be keen to have a great season for the Bulls and if needed, the Springboks too.”

•The Vodacom Bulls will open their pre-season campaign against the DHL Stormers at Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on 1 February 2014.

    Sterkte Pierre, en al die Bulle. Maak ons weer trots.
  2. gravatar johan says:
    I hear a rumour that JL Potgieter may soon be wearing camouflage rugby gear
  3. gravatar Bullebakkies says:
    Ek hoop ook Spies het n goeie jaar. Hy skuld ons n GROOT jaar! Selfde geld vir Hougaard ook.

    Hoop net nie ons gaan weer vanjaar begin met die SKOP EN JAAG gemors nie!!!!!!!!



  4. Kom ons gee die Span en Pierre n regverdige kans, ek is seker die manne weet dat hulle baie beter moet doen as verlede jaar. Pierre en Francois sal op hulle heel beste moet wees om vir die Bokke te speel so kom ons wag en sien. Die eerste wedstryd sal n goeie aanduiding wees van hoe ons gaan vaar.
  5. gravatar switll says:
    Kan iemand al bevestig of Matfield en Liefling gaan speel????? Alom bekend wat Matfield gaan doen maar nog niks uit die perd se bek gehoor nie
  6. gravatar Nico Keyser says:
    Weet nie hoe die Bulls opmerkings kolom nou werk nie!!!
  7. gravatar 2B2B says:
    kan mens al iewers die Tuks span sien? hul speel al opwarmingswedstryde so daar moet tog 'n aanduiding van die span wees.
  8. gravatar kabous23 says:
    Kan nie wag vir die rugby om te begin nie. Al hierdie spekulasie maak my mal. Victor, Derick, JL potgieter, wat gaan aan. Hoe lyk ons besering update.
  9. gravatar Bullebakkies says:
    Stem saam Frans, daar was meriete daardie jare toe dit gewerk het. Afgelope 2 jaar werk dit nie meer nie en daarom moet ons ophou daarmee.

    Ons het baie begaafde agterspelers wat met die bal wil hardloop. net effens bekommerd oor ons vaste vyf...ons het laasjaar gesukkel, veral in die skrums. Frik Kirsten, Morne Mellet en Marcel van der Merwe behoort vanjaar die ding vir ons te doen!
  10. gravatar Bloukaap says:
    Wie is die losskakel waarvan almal praat (oorsee vlgs koerant).

    Ek hoop ook on skan beter aanvallende rugby sien, maar dit sluit in beter en slimmer baldra-tegnieke. Hierdie liniaal bewegings wat ons in die Curriebeker gesien het was geweldig dom en frustrerend om na te kyk. Spelers soos Jan Serfontein kan in goeie off load skeppers ontwikkel met 'n JJ of Bjorn wat dit verder kan vat. Die Jurgens Vissers en Jessie Kriels is outjies wat lyne kan breek.

    As ons vaste vyf gaan domineer, sal ons beter bal op die voorvoet kry en kan ondervare losskakels die seisoen deurkom. Maar ons pak sal weer moet domineer soos in die dae van Matfield en kie.
  11. gravatar Cornelius says:
    Dit lyk nie of Derick Hougaard gaan speel, Sien Pollard en Fouche oefen en dan praat koerant van ander loskakel wat kom
  12. gravatar FRANNABUL says:
    Uiteindelik site gevind
  13. gravatar passdiebal says:
    JL Potgieter......
  14. 4 Weke om te gaan voor ons eerste game. Ek is seker alles is in plek en gewoonlik is n rumour net dit n RUMOUR. So kom ons wag en kyk wat gebeur met al die spekulasie.
  15. gravatar Cornelius says:
    Daar het ons nou die rerde loskakel, Wonder of hy nou kan skop, sy naam is JL Potgieter, het vir Cheetahs,Bulle, Sharks, Oorsee, en nou weer by ons, kon ons nie maar vir Derrick Hougaard gekry het, Ek wonder maar net
