Player of the Week: Bjorn Basson
12 March 2012

His two tries against the Blues and one against the Cheetahs last week only confirmed what Bulls fans came to appreciate about Bjorn Basson – you cannot keep him away from the try line.

These tries upped his tally to 18 and it will be only a matter of time before the winger will bring up his 100 in Super points.

He is not only a try scorer though and impressed against the Blues with his good defence and high work rate.
