Bulls lose services of another Bok

South African Super Rugby side Bulls have confirmed the departure of Springbok fly-half Handre Pollard for French Top 14 side Montpellier. Snyman and Pollard are not the first and will not be the last players to move overseas.

Pollard, 25, who is reported to have signed for nearly $2 million per season at the French club, is expected to earn close to three times his salary from both his Bok and Bulls contracts combined.

Those developments have happened alongside rumours that other stars such as Jesse Kriel are expected to leave.

Bulls CEO Alfons Meyer told Netwerk24 that Snyman will be unavailable to the Bulls throughout next year's Super Rugby campaign. He has been an outstanding asset, not only to the teams he played for, but also our supporters, to whom he endeared himself from early on with his attitude towards the Vodacom Bulls.

A local youth lured the child with a candy and allegedly raped her in the bathroom of a local school in Sumbal last Wednesday. Mehbooba Mufti has said that the guilty of such a heinous crime should be stoned to death by invoking the Muslim Sharia laws.

But the Pretoria franchise managed to get someone on their books too, as veteran flyhalf Morné Steyn will return to Loftus Versfeld next season.

"He will be missed for sure, but we can not fault his decision to continue his career in France".

"We are very pleased to have him back in the Bull kraal", he concluded.

Steyn represented the Bulls in 124 games between 2008 and 2013 and is still the leading all-time points scorer for the franchise. He played 56 times for the Bulls. Lood de Jager will be moving to Sale, Eben Etzebeth will move to Toulon in France, Snyman is going to the Far East, and Franco Mostert is already playing for Gloucester.
