You guys think the Bulls new top signing will push some cash into the side?

That's the hope. But we don't know what happens behind closed doors. Rupert and Motsepe now have equal shares in the Bulls. But it's the corporate arm of the Union, so we don't know how they will do business, and if anything will change and whether or not recruitment will be done.

The possibility is there that they might rather look at youth squads and improve their academy and rather try to use what they have and improve on that.

Marx has basically signed something similar to a Kolpak deal, he will play in Japan but when the league ends he won’t run out for the Lions.

Same with Kwagga who won’t be available for the Lions in the next Super rugby season. So we won’t see these two players running out in Super rugby next year.

Yeah, I just read that too. But I wonder if Kwagga might be thinking of doing the same as Kolbe in trying to go to the Olympics with the 7's team.

Morne Steyn should not start in the Bulls team...I hope he's more of a mentor to the young guns, like Schalk Brits was.

He did. Quite a few games actually.

The thing is I think Morne will start a few games. Libbok is surely with first choice fly half, but our other option is Marnitz Boshoff, and he's an injury-prone player. And based on reports he's again on the sidelines with another injury.

So we're stuck with Libbok and Steyn.
