There was good news for the Bulls ahead of their Antipodean tour, with Advocate Jannie Lubbe finding hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle not guilty of any offence, despite being cited for a “red card-worthy offence” during Saturday’s clash against the Force at Loftus.

Lubbe, aided by former Sharks and Munster winger Shaun Payne, heard defensive arguments from Ralepelle’s agent-cum-lawyer Gerrie Swart during last night’s hearing at Montecasino in Johannesburg, before dismissing the case against the Bok hooker. Ralepelle is now free to depart with his team-mates on tour today.

There was also better-than-expected news for winger Bjorn Basson; his injured ankle is not as serious as was first thought and while he will not depart with the team today, he should join them in around a fortnight, in time for the Australian leg of the tour.

  • @McLovin (Comment 2) : I agree, it is very very tough, only team I’ll give them a chance against are the Reds, the rest should on their good day beat them

  • @Ludz (Comment 3) : Look its gonna be tough but I expect them to come away with a win or two. The Bulls remain a quality outfit and if things go their way can beat any team on the day. But 1 from 4 would not be unrealistic. I just wonder what are their realistic expectations?
