“Since I was a young boy, I have always wanted to play for the Vodacom Bulls, to play for this prestigious and successful club,” says utility back, David Kriel who has extended his stay at the capital by a further three years.

Kriel has made 97 appearances for the franchise since joining back in November of 2020 and will continue to add to his cap count until June 2027.

The 25-year-old Grey alumni says Loftus has become home and is happy to be closer to his family while being involved in a project that he believes in.

“Pretoria is home and I enjoy the people in this city, and most importantly my teammates; I enjoy them and I love working with them. I believe in the project that we are building and want to work harder and strive for higher goals,”

“It was easy to choose to stay because I am living out my lifelong dream and I am enjoying it, to keep on chasing the Springbok dream and hopefully will achieve it over the coming years,”

He concludes by saying: “I am looking forward to the growth of the squad as a whole, us working together to reach our goals and set higher goals and win a couple of trophies to bring them back to Loftus Versfeld.”
