Pink Bulls

by Andy Davis / Images by Justin McGee / 03.05.2012

Pretoria home of the boerewors and brandy combo and that old archetype of unchallenged Afrikaans masculinity. And what better manifestation of this masculinity than the mighty Bulls rugby team, who have dominated the game for many long years with their unique brand of highly physical 10 man rugby. But now, all of a sudden, as if to punk that proud heritage of manliness, the Bulls are playing in pink. Not for charity, or some far-fetched once-off marketing gimmick, but a bonafide away kit in swatches of pink, cherise and berry magenta. In a MAHALA video exclusive, we braved Fortress Loftus and asked the fans and the players some tough questions about their new kit. Check it!

    Homophobic fans and players loving socially-acceptable release of their inner gayness. All thanks to Puma. Classic ending with the Bulls player’s arse as he walks off, great stuff.

    There’s a reason most readers here (outside of the Mahala-high-5-soggy-Marie-brigade) think you’re an uninformed douche-bag Davis!

    Whilst not being a Bulls fan I appreciate just how forward thinking their brand is!

    “10 man rugby”… really DD… they have scored more tries in the last 5 seasons than any other has!

    They have the highest number of black supporters out of all the RSA teams!

    That ‘pink’ shirt… out-sells their home strip by 8-1 as heard last night…

    These cats no how to win, how to market themselves fiscally, how to develop talent and how to be the most successful Super Rugby brand in the Southern Hemisphere.

    Enough said…
