The Bulls have released a statement relaying their ‘grave worry and concern’ for missing Springbok winger Sbu Nkosi.

It was revealed today by South African media that the player was missing from Bulls training and apparently his family have reported him missing to police in South Africa.

Nkosi was sent home by the Bulls from a tour of Ireland and Wales in October after failing to make a curfew and it is understood the winger has a history of similar issues at previous clubs. The lightning-fast Bull was meant to tour with South Africa A but was withdrawn due to injury.

Now a concerned Bulls side have asked for the public’s help to locate the Springbok, who they say they haven’t seen since November 11.

“The Blue Bulls Company can confirm that Vodacom Bulls contracted player, Sbu Nkosi has been absent without leave for the past three weeks. Nkosi’s last known contact with any executive, management or playing squad member is Friday 11 November 2022,” the URC side said in a statement.

“After numerous failed attempts, which include but are not limited to phone calls, texts messages, calls to relatives, partner and close friends as well as four house visits to his known place of residence, the company took the decision to open a missing person case with the Brooklyn Police Station (which was subsequently transferred to Sunnyside Police Station), in Pretoria on Thursday 17 November 2022. This resulted from the grave worry and concern of everyone at Loftus as well as the need for the expert assistance of the South African Police Services.

“We appreciate both the public and media interest in the matter, as we all share the same concerns about the player’s safety. However, we ask that you understand that we cannot make any further comments on the matter as it now sits with the South African Police Services.

“Anyone with further information about the whereabouts or information that may assist the police in discharging their responsibility, please contact the Sunnyside Police Station on +27 12 422 3600 or contact Crime Stop on +27 8600 10111. You may also email info@bluebull.co.za with any information that may assist.”

A source close to the Bulls camp told RugbyPass that the winger is rumoured to be with family in Swaziland, but there as it stands there has been no communication with the team.
