(UPDATED) Bulls-Stormers Match In LA Cancelled

The Bulls-Stormers pre-season match in LA set for less than three weeks away has been cancelled according to a statement from the Bulls. "The Vodacom Super Rugby pre-season warmup match, that was supposed to be played between the Vodacom Bulls and the DHL Stormers in Los Angeles has been cancelled due to issues regarding the agreed upon transfers and logistics." The statement went on to say that "Player welfare and the management thereof are extremely important to the Vodacom Bulls as well as the DHL Stormers, and will not be compromised on in this regard." What exactly where the agreed upon transfer and logistics is unclear.

The match will still go ahead but instead of being played on Los Angeles it will be played in South Africa. The cancellation of the match has to be a big blow to the organizers of the match. That match was coupled with the Eagles-Argentina XV match in what was billed as International Rugby Saturday. The U.S.-Argentina XV match will still go on as planned. Still, for those that had already booked tickets and made other arrangements they will be missing out on the Super Rugby portion of the weekend.

We'll update this story when we have more details. UPDATE: A match between Arizona and UCLA will replace the Super Rugby match.
