Meyer: Kenyan will boost Bulls

Heyneke Meyer says the acquisition of Daniel Adongo will have long-term benefits for the Bulls.

The Bulls announced on Monday that the 22-year-old Kenyan, who was previously with the Sharks, had signed with the Pretoria franchise until the end of 2013.

The 1.97m, 112kg loose-forward played in the 2011 Super Rugby pre-season tournament as well as for the Sharks XV in the Vodacom Cup, and Meyer hopes he will continue to grow at the Bulls.

‘Dan offers a lot to any team with his size and pace and I am looking forward to see him develop and progress at the Bulls in the next couple of years,’ the Bulls’ director of rugby said,

Adongo said he was thrilled to have this opportunity.

‘I want to thank the Sharks for the chance they have given me to play rugby and all they have taught me about the game through the Sharks Academy, and also the senior Sharks training squad,’ Adongo said.

‘I am very excited about my move to the Bulls. I look forward to the challenge of proving myself from scratch and it is a privilege to become part of the union.’
