Bulls snap up Lions loosie

Grant Hattingh has signed for the Bulls, with the uncertainty surrounding the Lions’ Super Rugby future having influenced his decision.

Hattingh represented WP at age-group levels and Maties in the 2011 and 2012 Varsity Cup tournaments, before joining the Lions in April. He made his Super Rugby debut against the Brumbies and has since been a regular in the team.

However, the Lions’ uncertain Super Rugby future meant Hattingh could not refuse the Bulls’ offer and the 22-year-old will be playing his rugby in Pretoria for at least the next two and a half years.
