The Blue Bulls have signed Namibian and Griquas loose forward Jacques Burger.

Burger will only be available for the Blue Bulls from June 2008 because after the World Cup he will stay in France to play for Aurillac.

The Blue Bulls Company said Burger's agent, the former Cheetah wing Jan-Harm van Wyk, went out of his way to help the Bulls sign the ace loose forward, who was on the shopping list of a number of big unions and European clubs.

Van Wyk said Burger's dream has always been to play in the Super 14.

"Jacques is one of those players who just wants to play rugby. It will not bother him if he must sleep on a dirt floor in order to play in the Super 14, he just wants a chance to compete against the best in the business," said van Wyk.

The French media selected the 24-year-old Namibian after the first round alongside Jerry Collins as their flankers for their World Cup Dream Team.

Burger is a product of Windhoek High and made his provincial debut for Griquas in 2005. - Sapa
