Rising Bulls star David Kriel extends stay with the Pretoria team

After the Bulls’ announcement that Jan-Hendrik Wessels, Johan Grobbelaar and Ruan Vermaak had extended their contracts with the Pretoria team, the news comes that promising return player David Kriel has also put pen to paper on a contract extension.

The defender, who has become something of a regular in midfield for the Bulls this season, will remain in Pretoria until at least June 2027. He is also comfortable playing as a wing-back and wing-back.

The 25-year-old former Gray College student has made 97 appearances for the Bulls since joining in November 2020.

‘Higher goals’

“Ever since I was a young boy, I have always wanted to play for the Bulls, to play for this prestigious and successful club,” David Kriel said Wednesday.

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

“It was an easy choice to stay as I am living and enjoying my lifelong dream of continuing to chase the Springbok dream and will hopefully achieve it in the years to come.

“I look forward to the growth of the squad as a whole, to us working together to achieve our goals and set higher goals and win a few trophies to bring them back to Loftus Versfeld.”
