Blue Bulls

The Blue Bulls, for sponsorship reasons known as the Vodacom Blue Bulls, or more popularly by their Afrikaans name die Blou Bulle, is a South African rugby union team that participates in the annual Currie Cup tournament. They are governed by the Blue Bulls Rugby Union and are based at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria, Gauteng province.

What was previously the Northern Transvaal Rugby Union then nicknamed the "Blue Bulls" renamed itself the Blue Bulls Rugby Union in the 1990s, and the Northern Transvaal team became known as the Blue Bulls at the same time. When Vodacom became the team's major sponsor their name was also added. Previously the side was sponsored by ExxonMobil and known as the Mobil Blue Bulls.

Their main colour is blue and their emblem a bull's head and horns.

The Blue Bulls Rugby Union also operates the Super Rugby team known simply as Bulls.

Famous quotes containing the words bulls and/or blue:

    It is a fruitful island of the sea-world, a great Ithaca, there parched and stony and here trodden by flocks and curly- headed bulls and heavy with thick-set grain.
    Christina Stead (1902–1983)

    The blue we bathe in is the blue we breathe. The blue we breathe, I fear, is what we want from life and only find in fiction. For the voyeur, fiction is what’s called going all the way.
    William Gass (b. 1924)
