THE Vodacom Blue Bulls' Springbok hooker, Chiliboy Ralepelle, as well as loosehead prop Dean Greyling, have signed a contract with the Bulls until the end of 2011.

Ralepelle, who is currently on tour with the Springboks in Australia, has been playing for the Blue Bulls since his school days and in 2006 made his debut for the Vodacom Bulls in the Super 14 tournament.

He also played his first Test for South Africa later that year at Loftus Versfeld against New Zealand after representing the SA Schools, SA Under-19 and SA Under-21 teams with distinction in his younger days.

Greyling is a product of Affies and though he has received numerous offers from other unions has decided to stay with the Blue Bulls.

"It was actually a very easy decision to make. I love playing for the Bulls and I enjoy myself in this environment and that is why I decided to stay true to the blue," he said.

Like Ralepelle, Greyling has also represented the Blue Bulls at Craven Week and after playing in the Bulls' junior structure for three years, has developed into a formidable front-rower. - Sapa
