Boeta Chamberlain

Chamberlain joins the Vodacom Bulls

The Vodacom Bulls have acquired the services of utility back Boeta Chamberlain on an initial two-year deal from coastal outfit, the Hollywoodbets Sharks.

The 25-year-old Paarl Boys’ High alumni will call the capital his home until June 2026.

Chamberlain has featured in 51 franchise matches for the Durban-based side, 39 of which have been in the Vodacom United Rugby Championship where he has scored 158 points with 15 of those coming from the three tries the creative midfielder has dotted down.

Director of rugby, Jake White says acquiring versatile players is key to having squad balance. “We have signed Boeta from June this year and his arrival will give us variation and depth. One of the things we want to get to, especially at 10 is to have players who can cover more than one position. When you have a guy, who can play in two different positions – especially on your bench – then you do not have to take your 10 off. This has worked for multiple teams and there is logic to good sides leaving their flyhalf on for as long as possible and your bench can either play at 10 or another position,”

“We are not there yet but we are working on it, to ensure that we have the depth of versatile players at flyhalf that will give us balance to our 23.”

Boeta will arrive at Loftus on July 01.
