Polokwane will host its first Super14 type match on January the 30th when the 2007 champions, the Bulls play the Cheetahs in a warmup match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Captained by former Pietersburg Hoërskool pupil Victor Matfield who is now the Bulls captain, the Bulls are the only South African team with a Super 14 title under their belts.

Rugbyweek reports that with Jaco van der Westhuizen, JP Nel back and also Jaco Pretorius in the Bullring, the Bulls feel they are ready for a good 2009 season.

This will be the Bulls’ last warm-up match and also Cheetahs before the Super 14 commences on February 13.

The Bulls’ first match in the Super 14 is against the Reds at Loftus while the Cheetahs meet the Lions at Coca Cola Park.

Tickets for the warm-up match in Polokwane will be available from next week at the offices of the Limpopo Blue Bulls and various rugby clubs in Limpopo at a cost of R150 (main pavilion) and R100 (open pavilion).


  • R150 for a warm up match? How much is a proper S14 match ticket?

    I find that ridiculous. They are off their heads.

    Warm up matches should be about promoting the game not about making money. :evil:

    Great Expansive Rugby is going to be played at that game. :roll:

  • Tickets must be around R70-R100 each, this is purely and simply a rip-off. Like a Bulls Season Season Ticket where you have to buy your Semi-final or Final ticket and not have it included!!!!

    I agree. The Bulls have to make money to pay their 6000 contracted players somehow.

    I mean…… they los a lot of Money when The French would agree to pay for bakkies and they had to spend all those legal fees hoping the French would make a great offer, which never came. And then there is John macFarland who they want money from as well………

    They must be involved with SARU somehow. :wink:

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 7) : True, all that imported talent, cough, I mean home grown talent needs to be paid for. They contract about 200 Under 19s and 21s to show who is hte best in the country.

    Certainly not at U19 or senior level, that honour is reserved for the SHarks!!!
