Good news for Vodacom Bulls as Ulengo, Schoeman extend stay
The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd on Thursday confirmed the extension of their contracts with Jamba Ulengo and Pierre Schoeman.
Both players have agreed terms to stay part of the Bulls family till October 2018.
Ulengo, a former Springbok Sevens player, has moved from Stellenbosch to Pretoria last year and after a high-scoring season for the Vodacom Blue Bulls in the Currie Cup last year, continued with that for the Vodacom Bulls in 2016.
He has scored four tries in seven appearances on the wing for the Bulls.
Schoeman, a former Junior Springbok representative, is a local player who has represented the Blue Bulls from junior level. He made his Vodacom Super Rugby debut in 2016.
Xander Janse van Rensburg, High Performance Manager of the BBC, expressed his delight with the extensions. "There is no doubt that both Jamba and Pierre will be pushing for national honours sooner rather than later and to have two of the most talented players around at Loftus Versfeld for the next two years are great. It is not only good news to our effort to build something special here at Loftus, but also to our fans, who will be able to enjoy the talents of these players for another two years."
• The BBC also confirmed that Marcel van der Merwe will join French Super 14 club Toulon at the completion of the Vodacom Super Rugby season.
