Blue Bulls kicking coach Vlok Cilliers will take up an offer from the Western Province Rugby Union.

The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd confirmed on Monday that Cilliers will start at Newlands in July.

Cilliers, who was instrumental in record-breaking Springbok flyhalf Morné Steyn's success, was utilised as kicking consultant to the Bulls (in Super Rugby) as well as the Blue Bulls (in domestic competitions) since 2013.

The BBC agreed to his request and granted him the opportunity to take up the offer from WP.

"We understand Vlok's decision, that it is a good time for him to move on in his career and wish him well, " Xander Janse van Rensburg, High Performance Manager at the BBC said.

"This will also afford us the opportunity to stimulate our current environment with some new ideas.

"We will be utilising the services of Louis Koen at the SARU Mobi-Unit and also have former Springbok and Bulls Super Rugby winner Derick Hougaard at Loftus as a kicking consultant."
