Border join Bulls franchise

The Bulls have entered into a partnership agreement with the Border Rugby Union in a bid to strengthen their Super Rugby franchise.

This comes after last week's news that the Bulls had begun a relationship with Boland and the Pumas.

'The Bulls are excited about the partnership,' said CEO Barend van Graan. 'We firmly believe that this strategic relationship will not only benefit the teams involved but will certainly enhance rugby in the various regions, ultimately strengthening the franchise and improving the Bulls' performances in the long term.'

Border administrator Monde Tabata was equally delighted about the partnership: 'There are many talented players in Border and they need an aspirational guide and I believe the Bulls could fulfill that role. They have coaching capacity and skills available that will immensely assist the needs of Border.

'The relationship must be seen to provide local boys with great opportunities to excel and reach new heights in their careers.'
