The Vodacom Bulls mourn the loss of a Loftus Versfeld legend and ex-Springbok, Pedrie Wannenburg, who sadly lost his life in a motor vehicle accident in the early hours of Saturday morning in the United States of America, where he was currently based.
Wannenburg, 41, was an instrumental member of the Vodacom Bulls team between 2002 and 2010 where he amassed over 100 Vodacom Super Rugby caps for the side. During his time with the side, he also made 20 appearances for the Springboks between 2002 and 2007.
The former loose-forward had taken up coaching and was a mentor at Austin Elite in Texas at the time of his untimely death.
The Vodacom Bulls continue to pray for his son, who remains in a critical condition after being rushed to hospital.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Evette, his children, family, former teammates and friends.
A moment of silence will be held in honour of Wannenburg ahead of the start of the Vodacom United Rugby Championship match between the Vodacom Bulls and Benetton Rugby.
