 Four key Kings players have reportedly signed deals with the Bulls for next season.

According to the SARugbymag website, Springbok centre Waylon Murray, loose forward Jacques Engelbrecht, lock David Bullbring and hooker Bandise Maku have committed to the Pretoria-based franchise.

The Bulls are trying to rebuild having confirmed the departure of eight star players earlier this week.

They signed Cheetahs scrumhalf Piet van Zyl on Tuesday, and on Thursday confirmed the signing of a number of promising junior players.

The Kings, on the other hand, now appear to be a sinking ship, having lost director of coaching Alan Solomons to Scottish side Edinburgh, and seemingly on the verge of being bundled out of the Super Rugby competition.

They lost their first Super Rugby promotion-relegation match to the Lions 26-19 last Friday and must win Saturday’s second clash at Ellis Park (17:00 kick-off) by at least eight points or with a four-try bonus point to have any hope of staying in the competition.
