So my good mate War1 just sent me a message that made me chuckle…. along the lines of “I knew a guy who wanted to buy the new Bulls jersey, but couldn’t find one”.

That’s right, folks, the wooden spoon contenders from Pretoria have seemingly taken much inspiration from the way they disappeared during this year’s Currie Cup campaign and have opted to go the whole hog in 2014, with a camouflage kit design that is unlikely to be imitated any time soon. With the previous shocking pink away jersey doing much to open up the Bulls brand to a hitherto untapped sector of the population (hello sailor!), the Bulls seem to have doffed the cap (or is that army beret?) to their more traditional fan base, by producing a garment that you can wear both at Loftus and on your next weekend hunting trip.

Watch this kief YouTube clip showing off the new design in all its, um, Bulls-ness.


  • 😯 just when you thought tacky couldn’t get any tackier the bulls come out with this…

  • Ouens… they are just trying to find a shirt to hide them on the field when playing pisspoor kak rugby!!!
    I just pray that our styling and or marketing team NEVER get’s this KAK or run out of ideas like them!!!

  • Look I get the Home strip. It kinda looks right for them bulls, but ai fokkit, who comes up with their away shirts??????

  • Comment 7, posted at 28.11.13 10:19:20 by R Hayward Reply

  • So apparently I’m the only one that can appreciate a bit of out of the box thinking around here. I don’t think it particularly pretty, but I do like a bit of an alternative design.

  • Ouens, just before we go too far on this bull bashing… Has anyone seen or have an idea how our shirts will look like???
    PLEASE tell me we stick to our trusted B&W!!!!

  • Personally the away strip is a LOT better than that pink stuff! Im not goign to pass too many comments as the Sharks new jersey hasnt been unveiled yet. But looking at the other BLK kits it doesnt seem like it will be flashy. Pretty much similar to what the kings kit looked like this year im guessing.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 12) : Kinda good news in a way (so far?)
    There was one of our away strips that was really good looking some years ago. It had a hint of grey in them. Memory is very vague on this, but that was a nice away strip.

  • Comment 13, posted at 28.11.13 10:32:11 by R Hayward Reply

  • there is no way Smitty is going to mess with tradition – trust me.

    We may see a bit of unusual styling on the away jersey – perhaps – but I would be really surprised if we move away from black & white.

  • Please respect the people on the other side of the Jukskei River/Boerewors-curtain to choose their own jersey’s. Hopefully ours will be much better looking! There is absolutely no relationship between the jerseys you wear and the rugby you play !Ask Jean Deysel, he played out of his skin with no jersey on! GO SHARKSS 2014 is ours !

  • I talked to BLK this morning and they assured me the Sharks jersey won’t be anything like that of the Bulls ito quality of design. They cannot make the design available before it’s launched but the jersey should be launched before mid December.

  • @lostfish (Comment 20) : One shouldn’t forget, Pumas might design and make the jerseys but was the BB management who approved the design

  • Comment 21, posted at 28.11.13 11:22:43 by Baylion Reply

  • @R Hayward (Comment 13) : Yes I do remember the grey. Personally id love the Super rugby jersey to mirror that of the Old Natal black and white thick striped jerseys. I think those looked very cool. Old fashioned i know but everyone has their preference. But if you look at the Aussie and Samoan jerseys they quite plain.

  • Comment 22, posted at 28.11.13 11:24:37 by SheldonK Reply

  • @Baylion (Comment 21) : That is true but Puma went into partnership with the Bulls knowing full well the tackyness of their jerseys…

  • I just can’t take pleasure in the Bulls clear lack of style and/or common sense. It would be akin to booing at the special olympics… no, scratch that, apparently I am that shallow 😈

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 28) : bit of a difference between a one-off for a good cause (where the military theme was clearly tongue-in-cheek) and a genuine design for an entire campaign…

  • Spot on from the Bulls marketing guys, these jerseys will appeal to their fan base.
    Now half the stadium wont have to go home after the hunt for a change of clothing, they can go straight from the veld to the stadium. Maybe not such a good idea, some fool might sneak in his 30 06 and take a pot shot at Lambie as he is lining up a shot at goal. They did this with a laser at some stage.

  • Three superrugby trophies…..I smell a lot off jealousy here. Bulls have stick to their blue for the home jersey and it looks great! Away jersey have become a fun outlet, about time some did it. Being conservative is boring, the NZ’s have also step it up. Love the blue camo!!!

  • Instead of criticize Puma for being innovative, we should give them a big thumbs up. They stick to the bulls blue for the home kit, but brought in a fun factor for the away kit. [Which u might only see in three games]. Wish Puma sponsor more SA teams.

  • Ok I understand asking a sharks supporter to like a bulls jersey is never gonna happen, so I give up. Lol. Still think the blue camo looks cool.

  • Sharks jersey’s have always looked ok, bulls have had some nice ones, but think strms, tahs and lions are getting left behind. My Kings jersey looked good, but would have liked at least a second colour in the form of a stripe or something…..

  • @KingsArmy (Comment 48) : The Stormers went back to a WP design and should change their name to WP Plus and we’ll see what the new Lions jersey looks like, the mock-up I’ve seen is a fairly simple red and white design. The Kings jerseys, home and away, were essentially copies of the Sharks black and white jerseys, nothing original.

  • @Baylion (Comment 56) : I agree. Strms should change their name. Yes the people here was not all happy with the Kings all black kit. Most wanted a bit of red in it, but the three unions could not agree on colors, so they just went black. Hopefully 2016 they give the kit some character….

  • @Caratacus (Comment 59) : U don’t know the half of it. Border has fired their coach because the team is too white, border are also not paying their players at the moment. Border and SWD want a equal cut, but only EP recruit big name players. [Ok big is a relative term]. Infighting is a killer!
