The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd and Blue Bulls Rugby Union on Tuesday congratulated Adriaan Strauss on being named the 57th captain of South Africa's Springbok rugby team.
Strauss, the incumbent Vodacom Bulls leader, was named captain by new Springboks coach, Allister Coetzee, in Stellenbosch on Monday, where the squad has assembled to prepare for the Castle Lager Incoming Test Series.
