Springbok Duo’s Return
The formidable backline duo, pivotal in securing the 2023 World Cup victory, has been notably absent from Bulls’ lineup since the December 23rd derby against the Stormers.
This absence has been attributed to adherence to the Springbok resting protocol, ensuring the players’ recovery and well-being.
Bulls’ Optimism: Moodie and Arendse Back in Training
In a positive development, the Bulls have confirmed the return of Canan Moodie and Kurt-Lee Arendse to training.
This announcement brings relief to the team and fans alike, as the duo is now eligible for selection in the upcoming derby against the Lions in Johannesburg.
The clash against the Lions marks the beginning of the second half of the United Rugby Championship (URC) campaign.
Post-Rest Sabbatical for Springbok Pair
Moodie and Arendse’s hiatus from competitive play aligns with the mandatory rest period for Test players, a crucial aspect of managing the workload and ensuring peak performance.
Their return injects experience and skill into the Bulls’ roster as they vie for success in the URC.
Le Roux’s Absence and Backline Adjustments
While the return of Moodie and Arendse is a boost for the Bulls, veteran fullback Willie le Roux is expected to be absent from the upcoming fixture.
Le Roux recently tied the knot, and as a result, is likely to be on honeymoon during the game.
This situation necessitates a reshuffling of the Bulls’ backline, presenting an opportunity for the recently acquired Devon Williams from the Pumas to contribute to the team’s adjusted lineup.
Bulls’ Strong URC Standing
Currently positioned as the highest-ranked South African team in the URC, the Bulls hold the fourth place with 30 points.
The return of key players and strategic adjustments to the backline showcase the team’s resilience and determination to maintain their standing in the competitive championship.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
