Pumas utility back Sebastian de Klerk is reportedly confirmed to have signed a three-year deal to rejoin the Vodacom Bulls after the 2023 Currie Cup.
The Pumas’ maiden Currie Cup triumph was reflected in the 2022 SA Rugby Premier Division Player of the Year award, which was won by De Klerk, who scored eight tries from wing and outside centre during last season as the Lowvelders won the title from fourth spot on the log.
Speaking to Netwerk24 after being named the best player in the competition last season, De Klerk revealed that he can’t wait to play in the Vodacom United Rugby Championship for the Bulls.
The 22-year-old made a permanent move to the Pumas from Loftus Versfeld in 2021 after a conversation with former age-group Bulls coach, now assistant coach, Nollis Marais.
“I signed a three-year contract with the Bulls. This [to play in the United Rugby Championship] is definitely my goal after the Currie Cup,” De Klerk told Netwerk24.
“For now my focus is on the Currie Cup. After that I want to show up at the Bulls focused and work hard. I would like to try and get a place in the starting team to play in the URC.”
