Speedster Kurt-Lee Arendse has been named Vodacom United Rugby Championship Player of the Month after a strong March campaign for the Vodacom Bulls.
Arendse scored twice in the Bulls’ 55-20 victory over the Dragons, but also shone in his overall contributions for the team as they made a clean sweep of their northern-hemisphere opponents in March.
In voting for Arendse as the URC’s standout player for March, the South African rugby media were effusive in their praise of “the threat he’s brought to the Bulls’ attack” and also highlighted the fact that “Arendse’s underrated ability is creating for others and not just finishing”.
According to the voting media, “He has been electric, solid and he has done everything right at every stage for the Bull. His linebreaks have led to multiple try assists and he gets the team on to the front foot each time he touches the ball.”
Arendse’s contribution has been key to the Bulls’ climb into seventh place on the United Rugby Championship log.
