  • Okay guys seriously, who was the tv Ref?

    He needs to be named and shamed.

  • So in essence….the bulls merely had to buy JLP to get their campaign back on the road?

    So without a half decent fh, they can’t play rugby, but with a half decent fh, they suddenly turn into a bonus point team?

    What can we learn from that? Probably that they’ll never be able to function without the kick and chase game…boring rugby will forever be bulls rugby.

    How long before JLP becomes the incumbent Bok fh :roll:

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 50) :

    What you could learn, is that the “kick and chase” game is extremely effective.

    All you need for relative success, is half decent players and a half decent flyhalf. With decents, you become virtually unbeatable.

    Somehow I doubt you’ll ever learn that, though. :roll:

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 50) : Also they`ll never be able to function without the likes of Stefan Greeff in the tv ref box handing them free bonus points from time to time, he must have met them all through a braai at Marius Jonkers’ place . . . :mrgreen:

  • @fyndraai (Comment 51) : That’s brilliant, just imagine, every team employing the same tactics.

    Never again do we have to waste our Saturdays watching rugby, as you have now established that rugby is 0% entertainment, and 100% result based.

    We only have to wait for the game to be finished, and then get the final score. ;-)

  • @Original Pierre (Comment 52) : I agree ,the Bullarinas always at home have influence over the ref’s and you will always find a blatant wrong descision going there way every time they paly at Loftus
