Bulls loosehead prop Dean Greyling has been released from his contract to join Top 14 club Oyonnax with immediate effect.
Blue Bulls Company High Performance Manager, Xander Janse van Rensburg, commented on the prop’s release to the French outfit.
“Dean has been a great stalwart for us and we decided not to stand in his way to go to France, where I know he will be successful, so we granted him an early release,” Van Rensburg confirmed.
“We want to thank him for his loyal services over a decade and wish him well in France.”
Greyling played for the Bulls 67 times and 50 times for the Blue Bulls. He also represented the Springboks in three Tests.
The front-row forward will be joined at Oyonnax by current Kings captain, Steven Sykes, at the beginning of next season.
