VIDEO: Bulls shock with new away kit

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 06:00

JERSEY LAUNCH: The Bulls will be unrecognisable in their away jersey in this season's Super Rugby tournament.

The Bulls' away kit in blue, white and yellow is a tribute to fellow city sporting giants Mamelodi Sundowns, the CAF Champions League winners and most successful team in the Premier Soccer League era.

Sundowns are also known as the 'The Brazilians' due to their kit's close resemblance to those of the Brazilian national football team.

The away jersey carries the same elements found on the Bulls' home kit – a 20180 graphic on the chest in celebration of the Rugby Union's 80-year anniversary in 2018.

"The Bulls have always believed in a bigger dream of uniting Tshwane, one that ensures that we fight to uphold the pride of our city," said CEO of the Bulls Company Barend van Graan.

"Both teams represent this beautiful city and we believe that sharing our colours is a great way of expressing that. This alignment no doubt also shows an amazing unity, not only between the brands but also the sporting codes. The bold move also shows the Bulls' willingness to embrace and unite, to be leaders and torch bearers in the process of continually unifying our people."
