It is a given that if Hougaard fires, the Bulls fire. The nuggety and very strong scrumhalf will be looking for a very strong 2014 season, following ankle surgery that kept him off the field for the second part of the season.
His 2013 form was nothing to write home about and the versatile player, who scored a try on the wing in the 2010 Vodacom Super Rugby final and played out wide for the Springboks as well, will be keen to remind people of his rugby abilities ON the field of play. A very popular player with a celebrity status off the field, he will be keen to show what the fuss was all about in the first place.
