For the article to be accurate, one must distinguish between the Blue Bulls and the Bulls.

  • The Vodacom Blue Bulls do NOT compete in Super 14. They are the representative team of the Blue Bulls Rugby Union, which governs the sport in Pretoria, two nearby Gauteng municipalities, and Limpopo Province. This team competes in South Africa's domestic competition, the Currie Cup. The "Blue Bulls" logo is that of the Currie Cup team.
  • The Bulls are the Super 14 side. While they draw most of their players from the Blue Bulls union, they also draw from the Falcons, the Currie Cup side representing the East Rand and other Gauteng municipalities to the south and east of Jo'burg.

Super 10 participation[edit]

Point taken, but didn't they also compete in the previous Super 10 competition? The competition started out as Super 6, then became Super 10 when SA came from isolation from 1993. As far as I know the (then) Blue Bulls participated in the Super 10 tournament as well, then as Transvaal, and in fact won the first Super 10. Then in 1994 the Sharks (then Natal) made it to the final, and in 1995 Transvaal again made it to the final. Am I incorrect in this? I don't want to add information again unless I understand the whole thing correctly? Are the teams that competed in the Super 10 the same as the teams that competed in the Super 12 and now Super 14? See this for example.

Replying to this (a mere 8 years later!) because it's creeping in again. The Super 10 was a competition that was played between then-amateur provincial teams. This article relates to the Bulls, a franchise created in 1997. If the Super 10 information must be added in, it should be on the Blue Bulls page. The Blue Bulls were formerly known as Northern Transvaal never and participated in the Super 10. TheMightyPeanut (talk) 16:20, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Article title[edit]

The Bulls and other South African Super 14 teams are franchises, not club. The article's title should be changed. Should it be changed to Bulls (Super rugby franchise) like the New Zealand Super 14 teams or Bulls (rugby union) like Welsh side Ospreys?

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Crusaders (rugby) which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RM bot 06:30, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

That talk page refers to moving the page to Bulls (rugby franchise) which I would agree with. The current name, Bulls (rugby union) only creates more confusion about what a union is vs what a franchise is. This page is about the franchise, and should have that in the name. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.96.15.22 (talk) 09:40, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

As I mentioned on Talk:Crusaders (rugby), I think it would be better to move the page to "Bulls (Super Rugby franchise)" just in case some other competition starts up that also use franchises, which might have teams with the same name. TheMightyPeanut (talk) 10:42, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
