The Vodacom Bulls are reportedly on the verge of unveiling one of the DHL Stormers’ Vodacom United Rugby Championship-winning backline stars as their next acquisition.
According to Netwerk24, speedster Sergeal Petersen has been lured back home and has signed with the Bulls from 1 July.
Petersen, who joined Western Province Rugby from the Cheetahs in 2018, replaced the injured Leolin Zas – the top try-scorer in the 2021-22 URC season – when the Stormers beat the Bulls in the inaugural final.
Able to play wing or fullback, the 28-year-old left to continue his career in Japan, but it is understood that the Bulls are keen on him as cover for Springboks Kurt-Lee Arendse and Canan Moodie.
