Transfer News: Willie le Roux now set to REMAIN in England

The Bulls’ plans to recruit a third Springbok ahead of next year’s Super Rugby tournament have failed.

Hot on the heels of the confirmation that hooker Schalk Brits and No 8 Duane Vermeulen would be plying their trade for the Pretoria franchise in 2019, comes the news that that fullback Willie le Roux will NOT be calling Loftus Versfeld home.

Instead, the 29-year-old will be staying at his English club, Wasps.

Blue Bulls Company high-performance manager Xander Janse van Rensburg told the Rapport newspaper that ‘Wasps will not release Willie from his contract’.

Le Roux missed large parts of the current English season while on Springbok duty this year.

Le Roux has represented the Boks on 52 occasions and was the first-choice No 15 for national coach Rassie Erasmus in 2018.
