The last really big rugby weekend kicks off with another Friday night match, this time hosted in Pretoria, where the Bulls take on Western Province, a match that can either allow the Bulls a chance to qualify for the play-offs, or completely rule that out.

The Bulls will look forward to getting a few Springboks back next weekend, where they are slowly running out of loose forwards to play, dipping as deep as Jean Cook starting in the 7 jersey. They do however have Bjorn Basson back on the wing, and he can turn a game on its head all on his own, so do not write off the Bulls just yet.

WP come off a good over Griquas at Newlands, and will hope for a good performance on the night to get them back in the reckoning for a home play-off. Results tomorrow in both games could leave them in with a shot.

Blue Bulls: 15 Jürgen Visser, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 JJ Engelbrecht, 12 Francois Venter, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Louis Fouchè, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 CJ Stander, 7 Jean Cook, 6 Dewald Potgieter (captain), 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 Mornè Mellett/Dean Greyling.

Replacements: 16 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 17 Frik Kirsten, 18 Grant Hattingh, 19 Warwick Tecklenburg, 20 Ruan Snyman, 21 Lionel Cronjè, 22 Ulrich Beyers.

Western Province: 15 Joe Pietersen, 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 JP du Plessis, 12 Marcel Brache, 11 Damian de Allende, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Nic Groom, 8 Jebb Sinclair, 7 Tyrone Holmes, 6 Deon Fourie (captain), 5 De Kock Steenkamp, 4 Don Armand, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Siyabonga Ntubeni, 1 Steven Kitshoff.

Replacements: 16 Deon Carstens, 17 Brok Harris, 18 Wilhelm van der Sluys, 19 Helmut Lehmann, 20 JJ Gagiano, 21 Louis Schreuder, 22 Pat Howard.

  • wasn’t a great game by province … Bulls very conservative too. No effort to push for a bonus point.

  • @JarsonX (Comment 16) : Well, not really. Now we have to make sure we get the tricky balance of losing to Cheetahs while getting a bonus point right…and hope the Kwasse beat the Lions.

  • The rationale behind a promo-relegation between the Bulls and Kings fail me. By then the Bulls will be at full strength to beat the Kings…

  • Hasn’t every week thus far produced only one away game winner?

    So by 17:00 we’ll be able to foresee whether the Sharks will be this week’s away winner. :smile:
