Stefan Watermeyer

A fantastic break, resulting in his best try of the season for Stefan Watermeyer, not only gave the Vodacom Blue Bulls a winning lead at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday, it also proved to be a back-breaker to the visiting Lions.
Watermeyer first waltzed past the Lions midfielder Waylon Murray with an inside break and then had Doppies la Grange clutching at straws on his way to score under the poles.

He was wagging a finger even before he dotted down and afterwards had both hands in the air as well as he celebrated his try with a dance move or two.

"It is always nice to score a try, but I am not normally that jubilant," Watermeyer said with a chuckle. "It was a personal highlight for me in scoring a try like that and it was at an important stage of the match for the team as well."

It is the strongly built midfielder's fourth try of the season and the one he enjoyed most by far.

"The one against the Cheetahs was not bad either as it was pretty important for the team. It is always nice scoring tries when it matters. I love scoring tries, but don't mind assisting either. Whatever is important to the team is good for me," the former Waterkloof scholar said.

His other tries this year came in the season's opener against the Pumas and against the Leopards in their clash at Loftus Versfeld.

Older brother Wouter plays at the Leopards, but the two will not lace up against each other this weekend when the Blue Bulls take on the Potchefstroom at home.

"He is playing with Pukke at the national club championships, so we will not have the opportunity to play against each other," Watermeyer said.

The young player managed to establish himself as an inside centre in the absence of Springbok midfielder, Wynand Olivier, and showed with his performances that the will be around the championship team for a while still.
