Olivier might miss start of SR season

The Bulls gets a taste of what the Stormers had to put up with following news that Wynand Olivier might miss the start of their Super Rugby campaign due to his Japanese club advancing in their domestic competition.

The Stormers who also allowed one of their players, Peter Grant, to play in Japan in-between Super Rugby tournaments have not been able to use the flyhalf at the start of their campaigns for two seasons and it seems the Bulls might suffer the same fate.

Ludeke confirmed to the Beeld newspaper that they are in constant contact with Olivier to ensure they plan accordingly.

Ludeke however has options available if Olivier misses the start of their campaign in Francois Venter who had a very good 2012 season as-well as the sensational Baby Bok, Jan Serfontein.

The Bulls open their Super Rugby campaign with a tough fixture against South African Conference winners, the Stormers at Loftus on February 22.

    so every article now will have a back-door reference to the stormers?

    “Cheetahs select Viljoen” is headline yet on ruggaworld it gets introduced as:

    ‘just like the stormers in 2001, the cheetahs have selected a viljoen’

    I carefully plan each headline and intro’s to articles just to piss Brendon off. Don’t spoil it now – I am winning.

    You sound a bit like Oom Schalk Lourens there with that beautiful exaggeration.

    Good one!
