The Vodacom Blue Bulls will play in the Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels World Club Tens in Mauritius on 17 and 18 June this year. Vodacom Blue Bulls coach, Nollis Marais, confirmed his side’s participation and said it is a very exciting trip for his team.
“The Vodacom Blue Bulls are very excited to be going to the Beachcomber World Club 10s. It is a perfect time of the season as we build back up for the end of the Vodacom Super Rugby campaign, and on the beautiful island of Mauritius, it is definitely Rugby in Paradise. Hopefully some of our fans will come across as well. We really enjoy the 10s format as it gives the players a bit more space on the pitch so they are able to relax and enjoy playing. I know we will have a great week.”
The Western Force, Toyota Cheetahs, African Pacific Dragons, Kubota Spears (coached by Frans Ludeke, with Lappies Labuschagne and Grant Hattingh as players), Saracens, Harlequins and Pyrenees Rugby will be the other teams playing in the main tournament to be played at Anjalay Stadium with TV coverage around the world.
A new addition to the tournament will be the African Nations 10s to be played alongside World Club 10s. It will feature six countries competing to be crowned African 10s Champions.
