The Vodacom Bulls have come a long way in the club Rugby They went professional in 1996 season when Super 12 was organized as Northern Transvaal and won 8 out of their 11 games and finished 3rd on the table. They made some good effort, but never able to cross the semifinal hurdle. In the Super 14 Era, which lasted between 2006 and 2010 and their fortunes changed a bit as they managed to enter their first ever final in the Super 14 Rugby but failed to win it.

Morne Steyn

After trying so hard for so many years, the Vodacom Bulls finally broke the jinx and won they’re first ever Super 14 title by defeating the Chiefs with a huge margin of 61-17. Their dream run continued next season as well when they defeated the Stormers by 25-17.
