Reports surfaced yesterday that the Blue Bulls and Boland will enter some sort of allegiance.
While it is still unclear exactly what this deal will entail, this should serve as a wake-up call to the guys at the Western Province Rugby Union.
For years players from the Boland region have been ignored when it comes to the selection of the franchise side – the Stormers.
During their time in the Cape, both Springboks Willie le Roux and Cornal Hendricks played for Boland, but were was not selected by the Stormers to play Super Rugby.
And with a plethora of players of colour at their disposal in Wellington, the Bulls will no doubt use this deal to boost their transformation numbers in years to come.
