NEWS: The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd confirmed on Monday that Springbok Sevens star Johannes Prinsloo has joined them on a two-year deal, having signed a contract until October 2019.

Prinsloo represented the Cheetahs in 51 matches in Super Rugby and the Springbok Sevens team for two years and 15 tournaments and will be available to the Bulls and Blue Bulls team with immediate effect.

High Performance Manager at the BBC, Xander Janse van Rensburg, said there is great excitement in the squad about the arrival of Prinsloo.

"There can be no doubt that the arrival of Boom [Prinsloo] will bring a different element to our squad and we are pretty excited about that," said Janse van Rensburg. 

"Boom excelled in XVs and sevens and not many players can say that. It does show how versatile he is as a player. He is also a strong leader on and off the field, another trait we want in our players."

Prinsloo said he is very pleased with his move to Pretoria.

"I needed a fresh challenge in my career and this is it," said Prinsloo. "I had a great time in Bloemfontein and will only have good memories about the opportunities they created for me in Free State, but I felt that it was time for change.

"Few challenges greater than making the Bulls squad comes across a player's career, so I am very keen to make the best of this opportunity. 

"I am very positive to learn and contribute to the squad and union and cannot wait to start."
