The Bulls confirmed that former Southern Kings loose forward Wimpie van der Walt has signed a short-term contract

The Bulls confirmed that former Southern Kings loose forward Wimpie van der Walt signed a short-term contract.
The 25-year-old will join the Bulls on a two-month loan contract from his Japanese club NNT Docomo, to help bolster the Bulls pack that has been hit by injuries. 
According to the Blue Bulls Company’s High Performance Manager, Xander Janse van Rensburg, the contract could be extended - depending on Van der Walt’s performances and fitness levels.
"It is no secret that injuries have ravaged our loose forward stocks and we are quite keen for Wimpie to join us as soon as possible," Janse van Rensburg said.
"He had a stellar season with the Kings last year and will not only add versatility, but also depth to our squad.”
Janse van Rensburg also confirmed that former Bulls player and captain Dewald Potgieter could join Van der Walt this week, as negotiations on his availability are in an advanced stage.
Potgieter plays for the Japanese club Yamaha Jubilo and could join the team  till after the completion of the Bulls' Super Rugby pool matches.
“We are hopeful that Dewald can join us. He is used to our structures and will fit in immediately,” Janse Van Rensburg said.
