A stellar season with the Toyota Cheetahs saw Van Zyl making his Springbok debut in 2013 and the Vodacom Bulls hopeful will be keen to see same similar form from their new signing.
Van Zyl’s kicking game and opportunism could compliment the power game of his new pack and with his sniping ability around the fringes, could be a nightmare to opponents.
His ability to adapt to his new team and patterns will be Van Zyl’s biggest challenge, but as the game seems to come naturally to the talented scrumhalf, a telling contribution could be expected from the start of the season.
