Bulls set to lose Madosh Tambwe to France?
Bulls winger Madosh Tambwe has been linked with a move to the Top 14 – at least according to reports from France.
Bordeaux-Bègles are looking to sign Tambwe as a replacement for outgoing All Blacks Seven giant Ben Lam. The 6’4, 105kg winger who left the Hurricanes and New Zealand in 2020, is set to sign for Montpellier.
That’s left a gap at the UBB and Bulls flyer Tambwe is now fated to fill the void left by Lam.
It will be a blow for the Vodacom Bulls and Director of Rugby Jake White. Tambwe – who had previous stints with the Lions and the Sharks – has been one of the Bulls’ most effective attacking weapons of late.
The Bulls added another URC win at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday with a commanding 55-20 victory against the Dragons, scoring eight tries in the process.
Such was their dominance, they were up 31-8 at the break, with the four try bonus point confirmed within 30 minutes and they continued their dominance in the second half.
It was not a faultless display by the home side, but their strike runners used the opportunities presented by a dominant pack to score some excellent tries.
White readily admits his team is not the finished product yet, but they have some real game-breakers that are starting to leave their mark on the Pretoria outfit.
Having put 50 over the Cardiff Blues and the Dragons, the Bulls have now cemented their place in the top eight – the play-off zone – and a spot in the European Cup next season.
“One of the nice things is that last week, we played really well and this week, we scored another 50 points,” White said.
“You’ve got to be proud of that and the way we’re playing is also nice. There’s some good interplay between backs and forwards.
“It is nice to have forwards that can score from five metres out. It’s also nice to know you have outside backs like Kurt-Lee [Arendse], Madosh [Tambwe] and Cornal [Hendricks].”
