  • 8-3 to Bulls. Bulls go for sneaky lineout throw…ball NEVer went 5 metres and they missed it. Bulls almost score but held up and now 5m scrum!

  • @robdylan (Comment 13) : Nope. Jordaan caught ball in 22 but instead of marking he jinked past defender and set up counter attack. Keegan ran 60m beating 2 or 3 players and got caught just short of line. Bulls infringed and we took the 3 points!

  • My tv is off – cant watch anymore.

    I see Plumtree has kept up Muir’s really poor selection policy.

    Nick Strauss is as average as anyone would have believed given his lack of high level selection prior to this, Mathie is as usual unexceptional, Skipper???, and Stefan is off the pace.

    Sharks need some serious help.
