Bulls re-sign Ulengo, Schoeman

The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd has confirmed the contract extensions of wing Jamba Ulengo and prop Pierre Schoeman until October 2018.

Ulengo, a former Springbok Sevens player, moved from Stellenbosch to Pretoria last year and after a high-scoring season for the Blue Bulls in the Currie Cup last year, carried that on for the Bulls in 2016.

He has scored four tries in seven appearances on the wing.

Schoeman, a former Junior Springbok representative, is a local player who has represented the Blue Bulls from junior level. He made his Super Rugby debut in 2016.

Xander Janse van Rensburg, High Performance Manager of the BBC, expressed his delight with the extensions.

"There is no doubt that both Jamba and Pierre will be pushing for national honours sooner rather than later and to have two of the most talented players around at Loftus Versfeld for the next two years is great news," he said.

"It is not only good news to our effort to build something special here at Loftus, but also to our fans, who will be able to enjoy the talents of these players for another two years."
