Vlok Cilliers to join WP Rugby Union

Springboks open training session

The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd has confirmed that Vodacom Bulls and Vodacom Blue Bulls kicking consultant Vlok Cilliers will take up an offer from the Western Province Rugby Union.  He will start at Newlands in July 2014.

Cilliers was utilised as kicking consultant to the Vodacom Bulls as well as the Vodacom Blue Bulls since 2013. The BBC has however, decided to agree to his request and grant him the opportunity to take up the offer from WP.

“We understand Vlok’s decision that it is a good time for him to move on in his career and wish him well. This will also afford us the opportunity to stimulate our current environment with some new ideas” Xander Janse van Rensburg, High Performance Manager at the BBC said.

“We will be utilising the services of Louis Koen at the SARU Mobi-Unit and also have former Springbok and Vodacom Bulls Super Rugby winner Derick Hougaard at Loftus as a kicking consultant.”

    Just maybe we can look forward to a Stormers no. 10 kicking further than 10 meter out of hand! Now just get rid of Wakefield, Fleck, Coetzee, ….

    Dawie, from what I hear the possibility of getting Slaptjips is not so far fetched. That would be good for Stormers rugby, as I reckon he is wasting his time at the Bulls and doesnt have enough say.

    Jimmy will not fit in with the dik-nekke at WP (neither players nor admin). Maybe we can lure Dawie Theron a bit closer….I still reckon he was one of our most underrated front-rowers in a long time!

    Ja it’s a pity but he is one of those coaches who quietely and without fuss gets things done…

    He’d actually do well in the Free State or with the Lions or Bulls.
