Experienced loose forward Josh Strauss' stay at the Bulls has ended prematurely.


The 33-year-old on Thursday confirmed in an interview with Netwerk24 that he was "done with the Bulls".

This comes after he signed a two-year deal with the Pretoria franchise mere months ago.

A Bulls spokesperson confirmed Strauss' departure to Sport24 and added that they would release a statement on the matter on Thursday evening.

The Netwerk24 report adds that Jake White, the Bulls' new director of rugby, had informed Strauss via his agent that his services were no longer required at Loftus Versfeld.

"When I decided to come back last year and play for the Bulls it was 100% because of family reasons. I also considered several good offers from overseas clubs but decided to take a massive pay cut to come home for my family."

Strauss would have had his fair share of competition at No 8, with Duane Vermeulen, Nizaam Carr, Arno Botha and Tim Agaba all part of White's plans.

The former Lions captain had spent five seasons at Scottish club Glasgow Warriors (2012-2017) and also played for Sale Sharks in England (2017-2019) and Stade Francais in France (2019-2020) before joining the Bulls at the beginning of the year.

He also played 15 Tests for Scotland.

Strauss added that he would not retire from the game and is on the lookout for a new team.

100% 

Hé kan be that “harde baard” lock that we are looking for. 

33 years old , maybe a bit slow for 8. But I believe he is tall enough to play lock and could add huge value to our pack.

Nee wat, dink ons het nou genoeg pensioenarisse by ons... Kan daardie geld eerder bele om jong spelers te behou en terloops, ek sien hy kla juis omdat hy nou nie meer genoeg salaris kry nie en dat hy te ver van sy familie in die kaap af is.

Stem. Hy is net te lank in die tand. As hy 30  was, miskien. Ons kort spelers wat in hulle prime is, en nie pensionarisse nie.

boys , ons span is soos n lions under 21 span.

Ek weet nie wat hy sou kos nie , maar teen n reasonable prys Sal ek hom verseker vat.

Kyk watse verskil het schalk Brits en Duane vermalen by die hulle gemaak laas jaar. Jy kort n paar sulke ouens in jou span ons het vir Jannie en Alberts , maar soos ek Se teen die regte prys kan Strauss n verskil maak in ons mix

Ek weet darem nie, hy het my glad nie beindruk met sy spel die laaste paar jaar by die Skotte nie en ook nie rerig so ver by die Bulle nie.

In his prime, he was an abrasive loosie, not the quickest, but he was also smart. We cannot to have him and Alberts in the same starting line up. We need two quick loosies, or we will really suffer at the breakdowns. And I am not sure if he wont be a disruptive force like he was in the past.

Ek stem saam Niela. Solank hy nie met 'n moerse price tag kom nie sal ek hom vat. Kanse dat al die out oppies, Jannie, Willem en Josh selfde tyd op veld gaan wees is skraal. En natuurlik is Willem baie injury prone, so dis nie virseker dat hy heeltyd fiks gaan wees nie. 

Ek weet netnie hoe Josh speel deesdae nie, het hom baie lanklaas gesien speel
