Lions second-row Paul Willemse has agreed terms with the Bulls and will join the Pretoria-based outfit ahead of next season's Super Rugby campaign.
The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd announced the deal for the Junior World Cup winner, who is currently at the Golden Lions in the Currie Cup.
He will start camp in Pretoria on November 1.
Willemse was one of the stand-outs in the Junior Springboks team that won the IRB Junior World Championship earlier this year and at 127kg and 2.00m, will bring a lot of physicality to the Bulls.
"He is clearly enjoying his rugby at the moment and one can see that in his efforts on the field," head coach Frans Ludeke told the Bulls' website.
"He is a big, strong man and loves the physical aspects of being a lock, something that should fit in perfectly at the Vodacom Bulls. We are delighted to get him on board and I believe he will do very well with us."
