The Blue Bulls have scooped two of Western Province's most promising back-line players.

Wing JJ Engelbrecht and centre Johann Sadie have completed transfers and will join the Bulls on 1 November.

Sadie said he expects to get more opportunities with the Bulls.

"I have enjoyed my time with the Stormers immensely. I am a loyal person, so it was a difficult decision, but I am excited about the opportunities that I will be afforded at the Bulls," he said.

The chief executive officer of the BBC, Barend van Graan, said, "We have a vision to become a world leader in rugby and players like Johann and JJ will contribute towards that goal."

The players have signed two-year contracts which run till 31 October 2013.
