According to the man who always has his finger on the pulse, Brenden Nel from SuperRugby, the Blue Bulls managed to secure the signatures of WP duo Johann Sadie and JJ Engelbrect on a 2-year contract following the 2011 Currie Cup.
News broke earlier this week that Sadie might be looking to leave WP and Stormers rugby given that the current first choice centers, De Villiers, Fourie and De Jongh all looked likely to re-sign with the union (De Villiers signature was already confirmed).
Offers from both WP Rugby and the Blue Bulls was on the table, but as many suggested, the promise of game-time (something the Blue Bulls apparently guaranteed) would be the deciding factor in his decision.
In a report, the Bulls’ Ian Schwartz also confirmed they have been ‘chasing’ Sadie since he was in school, believing him to be a potential Springbok in years to come.
As many WP or Stormers fans will tell you, the Blue Bulls (yet again) scored a major coup with the signing of the duo.
