The Bulls have lost three more players to the Euro, adding to their already pretty big list of Fourie du Preez, Victor Matfield, Bakkies Botha and Danie Rossouw.

It has been reported today that Gurthro Steenkamp and Currie Cup captain Gary Botha have signed three year deals to join Toulouse in France.

Steenkamp who has just returned from representing South Africa at the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand was the SARU Player of the Year in 2010 and has earned 40 Springbok Caps.

Gary Botha, who left South Africa after the 2007 RWC to join Harlequins in London, returned to South Africa in 2011 in the hope of making the RWC squad but a dip in form saw him not make the squad that included three hookers with his superior team mate Chiliboy Ralepelle making the squad.

The Blue Bulls union also announced the reelease of Stefan Watermeyer to join the Ospreys in Wales.

  • My year just gets better :cry:
    Gurthro Steenkamp is a massive loss especially in the scrums where dean and werner struggled this year.

    The impressive yound rising star Francois Venter forced watermeyer to leave.
    Expect more press releases concerning players leaving.

    Our beloved Heyneke Meyer has to make some tough calls he is the one who evaluated players who are not good enough for the bulls senior team.

  • I thought Guthro and Gary leaving was announced a while back or are my psychic classes finally paying off?

  • I almost feel for the Bulls. Guthro is a huge loss and will be felt. I thought Watermeyer was a decent player but I’ve never really rated Gary.

  • @Muzi (Comment 30) : the relationship between sharks and bulls ; If they had free choice between Lambie and Jurgen Viser(spelling :( ) they would choose the later, and I think the same goes for us
