• Bulls to get Hougaard back

    Blitzbok Francois Hougaard will return to the Bulls in March for a stint in Super Rugby.

    Hougaard, who has a Springbok Sevens contract with Saru, will play in the Sydney, Las Vegas and Vancouver tournaments before returning to the Bulls, according to Rapport.

    He is expected to play at least eight matches for the Pretoria-based franchise.

    Hougaard will then represent the Blitzboks in the last two tournaments of the World Rugby Sevens Series, in London and Paris, in a bid to earn selection for the Olympic Games in August.
