PUMA the official technical and apparel sponsor of the Blue Bulls has unveiled a new Currie Cup rugby kit inspired by heritage and tradition – with no pink colourways or camo designs in sight.

 

The jersey in the Blue Bulls’ customary blue is also embroidered with both the PUMA logo and the Blue Bulls’ Daisy on the shirt. Part of PUMA’s evoPOWER Rugby apparel design, the jersey uses a polyester tight fit material which is lightweight, comfortable and robust.

 

“The ABSA Currie Cup symbolises the long and proud heritage of South African Rugby, so it was important for us not to break away from the traditional look of our ABSA Currie Cup jersey for that very reason. We firmly believe that the simplicity, yet elegance of the design makes a bold statement,” said Barend van Graan, CEO of the Blue Bulls Company.

 

“This is the second Vodacom Blue Bulls Currie Cup kit we have launched and marks a return to a classic, clean and simple design. It will be used by the team for two seasons and we wish the management and Blue Bulls all the best for the Currie Cup tournament,” said PUMA South Africa’s Marketing Director Brett Bellinger.

 

The new Currie Cup shirt has a recommended retail price of R649 and will be in-store from 1 August 2014. Available at PUMA Retail as well as select retailers nationwide. Call PUMA on 021 551 0832 for more information. Follow @PUMASouthAfrica to join the Blue Bulls conversation.

Bulls: Pierre Spies Q&A

How is the injury and do have any idea when your fans will next get to see you playing?

Recovery is going really well thanks, all is going according to plan and I’ll be back on the field beginning next year.

It must be extremely frustrating to suffer with such a long term injury – how do you stay fit and positive?

Yes it has its challenges and you go through some lows. But it’s important to get a good perspective of where you’re at and get motivation to where you want to go.

Your thoughts on the Currie Cup – who will be the Bulls biggest rivals, or is it the most open tournament of recent years?

It always is an open tournament- the team with the most points win! Lol

The Bulls experienced a really mixed bag of results in Super Rugby this season – what needs to change to ensure a consistently high level of play in the Currie Cup?

Injuries hit us hard this year but you can’t plan for that. It’s important that we build an experienced squad and keep them together. We’ve got great youngsters at the Bulls so the challenge is keeping the old heads.

There is sometimes talk about South Africa needing to agree on a playing style, how do you feel about that statement given the Bulls, Stormers, Sharks and Cheetahs all seem to have such different ways of playing rugby?

We’re probably never going to agree on that in SA. But there’s really only winning rugby and losing rugby.

What do you enjoy most about the Bulls way?

The culture is special. History, heritage and friendships. When we’re at our best we score the most tries- that’s the aim.

You have been an essential part of the Springbok set – your thoughts on where the national team is headed?

I think the Boks are only going to get better. It’s such a great environment and bunch of players- a real privilege!

What are you immediate and longer term rugby goals?

My first goal is to make a successful return to the field helping the Bulls in next years SupeRugby. Then playing for the Boks at the World Cup next year. I might enjoy an overseas stint soon, so we’ll see!

What are you thoughts on the new PUMA Currie Cup kit – relieved there is no pink camo, stripes or spots?

I loved the camo, don’t know what the fuss was about. I think the new one is beautiful, a traditional Bulls Currie Cup jersey.

Which boots do you play in and why do you chose to play in those particular boots?

I play in the evoPOWER boots which are an extremely comfy fit!
