Vodacom Bulls say thanks to Werner Kruger

The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd on Wednesday extended its heartfelt gratitude and thanks to Werner Kruger, who will play his last home match for the Vodacom Bulls at Loftus Versfeld this weekend. The 31-year old prop will run onto Loftus Versfeld for the last time before moving on to Wales, where he will join Scarlets, following a career that started way back in 2003, when he represented the Vodacom Blue Bulls for the first time.

The prop represented the Vodacom Blue Bulls in 133 matches and will jog onto the field in Vodacom Bulls colours for the 119th time.

Kruger also played in four test matches and one tour match for the Springboks.

The CEO of the BBC, Barend van Graan, said Kruger will be remembered as one of the greats.

"Werner was never one who played for records or personal achievement, yet he will be remembered as one of the most successful props we ever produced. He still is the only player in our history to become a centurion in Currie Cup and Super Rugby and has won Cups and titles with both teams. That is remarkable and how we will remember Werner. A player who never played for recognition, yet who will remembered for unique feats."

Vodacom Bulls coach Nollis Marais, also had high praise for the prop.

"Werner came here straight from school and never played for anyone else. He was loyal, professional and very, very capable. We were honoured to be able to call on Werner's services for so many seasons and to be served by such a gentle, but great person. We salute Werner and want to wish him well in his next phase of his career. He will be a massive asset to the Scarlets and I know he will not only take real prop expertise with him, but will also install some of our Bulls character in his new team. Go well our friend," Marais said.

    Dankie Werner, al het dit soms swaar gegaan in die skrums, was jy 'n lojale Bul in murg en been. Jy het die goeie en slegte tye beleef.

    Sterkte vir die nuwe fase van jou loopbaan. Onthou, dit is in die lewe nie hoe jy begin nie, maar hoe jy eindig wat saak maak.
