The Blue Bulls Company are excited to confirm that Jake White has signed on as Director of Rugby and will be officially joining the #BullsFamily effective immediately until the 2023 World Cup.

The former Springbok coach and Rugby World Cup winner assumes the position vacated by Alan Zondagh, who stepped down earlier this year.

White has recently been coaching the Toyota Verblitz in Japan and joins the Vodacom Bulls with over four decades of coaching experience stretching back to the early 1980s. His global experience at the highest levels, particularly in Vodacom Super Rugby as the former head coach of both the Cell C Sharks and Brumbies, will benefit the Vodacom Bulls as they continue to add to their resources.

Blue Bulls Company CEO, Alfonso Meyer, shared his sentiments on White’s impending arrival.

“We are extremely excited with Jake’s decision to join us. His credentials speak for itself and we know his contributions are only going to improve our rugby across the board. Jake’s appointment is yet another step in the right direction as we endeavour to take this brand into a new era. We wish him well in his new role,” said Meyer.

White expressed his eagerness at getting the ball rolling, “The Vodacom Bulls brand has always been a powerhouse in rugby, and respected around the world. There’s a great history and heritage here, and I’m looking forward to adding my contribution to the Bulls’ legacy. The shareholders, Remgro, Patrice Motsepe and the BBRU, together with the staff, have an amazing ambition to not only take the Bulls back to number one, but also re-invent and re-mould the face of rugby in this country.”

White is a straight forward man, and didn’t sugar coat the need to start winning, “We need to re-build a winning culture at Loftus, and that will no doubt bring the fans back to their beloved Loftus Versfeld. This won’t be easy, but we are up for it.”

The former Bok coach is also keen to do his bit to indirectly contribute to the national setup, “It’s no secret that our franchise rugby needs to be strong for the Boks to be strong. I’m looking forward to doing whatever it takes help keep them at number one.”

Either way, die bulls mik hoog. White het sy foute (soos almal maar), maar niemand kan stry hy is 'n massive signing vir hulle.

Dit mag net dalk trane van blydskap wees. White se styl sal goed pas by die Bulle. Sy strukture is baie goed en hyt n baie goeie track record.

White is `n tweede Mitchell. Gee hom genoeg tyd en dan maak hy mense kwaad en spelers draai dan teen hom.... Hy bly ook nooit lank op `n plek.... Hy skep ook altyd politiek in `n unie..... Ek kan nie sien dat dit gaan werk nie.....

Hoeka vandag die 2011 CC final gekyk, kon nie help om the sien how goed ons spelers afgerig was en hoe min foute hulle gemaak het nie, onder Mitchell, ek reken daar was ander invloed in 2012. Miskien sou n Mitchell weer die huidige slapgat Leeu span regruk

Of White die regte aanstelling vir die Bulle is of nie, een ding is seker, die bulle sy bestuur het ambisie en skroom nie om die beste afrigter te soek vir hulle span nie, net 'n kwessie van tyd voor hulle weer SA se beste span is... 
Ons aan die ander kant stel onervarr afrigters aan en boonop is sy hulp afrigters ook onervare...

I believe Cash has huge potential, We have some really good names in the coaching team. I believe that there is only one guy that should be replaced. I also think that the GLRU should appoint a DOR. He can align the age group and school boy coaching structures, but above all, give Cash and co a helping hand. Our 2 biggest problem areas are attack, where we just seem to lack penetration. We have lots of possession, but don't seem to know how to turn that into points at the moment. Our second area of concern is still defense. We seem to be able to defend well for periods, then lose structure and fall apart.
