Force sign Bulls lock
- 20 Jun 2013
Wilhelm Steenkamp has signed a three-year deal with the Force.
The second rower had fallen behind newcomer Grant Hattingh in the Bulls' pecking order and was unlikely to have had his contract renewed at the end of the season.
Steenkamp will join fellow South African Sias Ebersohn at the Perth-based side, and becomes the sixth Bulls player to leave the union this year (Zane Kirchner, Wynand Olivier, Morné Steyn, Juandré Kruger and Chiliboy Ralepelle have also signed contracts with overseas clubs).

The decision to retain Adriaan Strauss as Springbok captain for the rest of the year is perfectly understandable, but it should not compromise the possibility of a national recall for Bismarck du Plessis, writes CRAIG LEWIS.
