Wikus confirms Saracens switch

I’m not really sure if this is news or not, since we reported on it ages ago when it first broke in the UK papers. Just occasionally you do find something worth reading in the free rag they hand out on the trains!

So, Wikus van Heerden had apparently already signed for them a few weeks ago. Then the creative bit of fiction came out to say that he might stay in Pretoria, to allow him to join the new era of Bulls slumber parties, all taking place at Vic Matfield’s new pad. I wonder how they manage to tell their sleeping bags apart, since I’m sure they all have Heyneke Meyer on them.

Anyway, according to an article on Keo, that was a bit of a red herring. Wikus has indeed signed for Sarries and will turn his back on Pretoria, swapping it for the equally thriving metropolis of Watford. Perhaps the looming hole in the Bulls lineup will be known as the “Watford Gap” once Wikus boards the plane.

I think we can consider this matter closed, until the next time some lippy agent starts spreading further rumours about Wikus joining Toulon, or something.

  • Well chuffed with this signing but old Wikus has HUGE boots to fill at Sarries.

  • @VinChainSaw (Comment 10) : come on, Vin. Richard Hill is NEVER going to go down in the annals of rugby as one of the great loose forwards. He’d struggle to make the top 30.

    You dont watch much rugby do you?

    Richard Hill, with the exception of Neil Back, is the best English opensider ever to have played the game.
    Your problem is you’re still a youngster and havent ever watched him play…

  • @Dive Pass (Comment 11) :

    Mate, Julies is one of those players to make up the numbers – Richard Hill was astalwart of the English side for more than a decade.

    Wee bit of a difference and failure to acknowledge that difference sort of renders this debate pointless…
