The Vodacom Bulls, do you (really) know them?

One of the biggest South African rugby franchises and Unions, the Blue Bulls have produced or developed some of the finest stars or legends like Joost van der Westhuizen, Frik du Preez, Fourie du Preez, Naas Botha, Uli Schmidt, Bryan Habana, Pierre Spies, Victor Matfield or Burger Geldenhuys, among others, and have always left a deep impact wherever they played or toured.

For the first time ever, this famous South African side will be part of "The 7's in the Sun" to show the very best of their 7's program in Algarve.

Remember that the Bulls helped to foster some of the current Blitzbokke biggest names (South Africa 7's National team), as Branco du Preez, Stedman Gans, Impi Visser, or the young starlet, JC Pretorius, and this should get you ecstatic of what's to come in June.

As a more globalized world, the Vodacom Bulls are seeking new to help develop other countries, and Portugal, who have a long and steady relationship with the Rainbow Country, is set to be a new sport and cultural partner.

Sports Ventures had the pleasure to talk to Willem Strauss, President of the Vodacom Bulls, who helped us understand why they are coming to Algarve, what are they seeking in the Algarve 7's, and who will we be able to watch a play at the tournament!
