Bulls president: We're victims of our own success


Blue Bulls president Willem Strauss says there's still a lot for fans to be positive about despite the Currie Cup team's poor performances. The Bulls are last on the Currie Cup log after suffering three defeats in four matches, but Strauss urged their supporters not to lose hope. 'Overall, there's a lot to be positive about at the union,' Strauss told Netwerk24. 'Our representative teams - from schools' level upwards - have an 80% win record this season and a lot is being done to again make our clubs a strong feeder system for the union. 'It's sad to see our performances [in the Currie Cup] because so far it's actually been a good year for the Bulls [who reached the Super Rugby quarter-finals]. 'We have the most representatives in the Springbok squad and players like Lizo Gqoboka, Trevor Nyakane and Warrick Gelant - who are currently on tour with the Boks - played Currie Cup rugby last year. 'In a way, we're actually the victims of our own success.' Photo: Bulls Facebook page
