Ex-Lions stalwart joins Bulls

The Blue Bulls Company has officially announced the signing of centre Harold Vorster, who will return to South Africa from a stint in Japan.

Voster enjoyed a stellar career across the Jukskei where he represented the Golden Lions and Lions accumulating 70 caps in Super Rugby and 17 more in the Currie Cup.

In 2018, the hard-running midfielder made the move to Japan where he turned out for the Panasonic Wild Knights.

Voster has established himself as a no-nonsense centre who wields blistering pace and explosive strength which was rewarded in 2017 as he donned the South Africa A jersey against the French Barbarians.

‘Attracting the type of talent Harold possesses is exactly what we are looking for at Loftus Versfeld,’ director of rugby Jake White said.

‘His signing adds immense depth to our backs and we are keen to see what he brings to the table.’

The Bulls already count Springbok Cornal Hendricks and Blitzbok Stedman Gans among their centres, as well as promising youngsters in Marco Jansen van Vuren, Marnus Potgieter, Diego Appollis and Dawid Kellerman.
