Fourie du Preez eyeing Europe

Springbok scrumhalf Fourie du Preez could be heading to Europe as early as next month if he decides to accept one of four offers he has received.

News 24 reports that the Afrikaans Sunday newspaper Sondag reported that Du Preez is currently considering four offers and has not ruled out the option of an imminent move after the Super 14.

The Bulls captain missed his team’s win over the Highlanders on Saturday with a hand injury, but told Sondag that he was waiting for the Super 14 to finish before he made a final decision.

According to the report, two British clubs as well as Stade France and Brive are after his signature.

“I have received a few offers,” Du Preez told Sondag, “But I wasn’t looking for them. At the moment I’m playing for the Bulls in the Super 14 and I have a contract with them. I will however have a look after the Super 14, weigh up my options and take a decision then about my future.

Du Preez was offered a contract with the Springboks but didn’t sign within the time allowed. This gives him an escape clause in his contract with the Bulls.

“The Springbok contract was withdrawn and there is an escape clause in my contract with the Bulls that says if I receive an offer from overseas and I am not contracted to the Bulls, I can leave,” he said.

“But at the moment, I must add, I want to stay here, and don’t have any plans at the moment to move.”

    They had the sinking of the Oceanos on there. The Captain jumped overboard as soon as the ship started listing.

    Morning guys!! def a weekend of upsets with minor exceptions. I hate blaming the ref – but a bit of a shocker although I cannot speak too muh as i was running to the bar for a bear – then running to the fish bowl for a smoke, then running back to assist Pa with the kids….and trying to watch a game…

    I hammered on discipline before 0 and I think my point has been proven – drop your discipline and you will get penalised.

    I think this is a blessing in disguise and this wake-up call came at the right time – we cannot take on the Saders in the ‘comfort-zone” “we’ll take the points kind of way. We need to fire on all cylinders. Drink your coffee, get your asses out of bed – its time to work!!

    Still proud of my boys – always will be! :wink:

    And the SA Navy divers only left the ship 4 minutes before it went under…but thats got nothing to do with the point you were trying to make.

    I think they have lost the pride there use to be to play for the Bulls..

    Clayton….I am still waiting for part 2….. :wink:

    Is that what they call load-shedding these days?

  • I thought Bulls played pretty well this weekend, albeit against the Highlanders….unlike certain other teams that will rename nameless

  • DP, true, The Bulls have some high quality players and they are bound to assert themselves from time to time. They also have a lot of youngsters that can come through. Given consistent quality coaching, by rights they belong in the top half of the comp.

  • KSA, he he. I knew that he was going elsewhere. Was just having a chuckle at such an outrageous idea. Those guys, successful as they are, have little incentive to work in Pretoria.

    Maybe I should have replaced the light bulb with a :hysterical laugh:

  • Du Preez was offered a contract with the Springboks but didn’t sign within the time allowed. This gives him an escape clause in his contract with the Bulls.

    That stinks of a stitch-up with a bit of fore-thought!
    Talk about hedging your bets!
