Former Pretoria Boys High student Mthunzi “Fudge” Mabeta has put pen to paper with the Bulls Union, extending his current contract to the end of 2012. This follows hot on the heels of another young lock, Flip van der Merwe, opting to extend his Bulls stay up until the same point.

With all three of their stalwart Bok locks, Victor Matfield, Bakkies Botha and Danie Rossouw, approaching retirement, the Bulls have acted swiftly to retain the services of their up-and-coming youngsters. One who appeared to have slipped through the net, Juandre Kruger, is also on his way back, having played for Northampton in the UK for the last year.

The Bulls have seen a number of other talented second rowers seek greener pastures elsewhere over the past few seasons, though, with Hendrik Roodt (Waratahs), Adriaan Fondse (Stormers) and Cliff Milton (somewhere in France) the most notable losses.

Perhaps the most promising one of all, Wilhelm Steenkamp, is currently on loan to the Sharks and has featured regularly in John Plumtree’s match 22 this season.


  • Hey, why not send Fudge to us on loan so we can play him at flank…

  • I don’t think it would be a bad thing at all if we nabbed Wilhelm Steenkamp while we have the chance. Muller is leaving and Mostert is injury prone. Plus it doesn’t hurt to have a good back-up or some compition.

    What do you think the chances are of the Sharks offering Steenkamp a contract, or more importantly of Steenkamp excepting?

  • I loved the way the BBRU announced this re-signing “another high profile player……”

    Mabeta high profile? How many S14 starting caps does he have?

    Lionel Cronje of the Stormers is the guy we need to nab. His attitude will come right in Durban.

  • Who cares about Fudge? He is the Bulls window dressing solution.
