  • Brumbies clearly struggling in the scrums with ref not allowing them to bore in.

  • Bulls look full of running this evening though. JLP slots another penalty which I think was for offsides.

  • And thats HT Bulls playing very well. Strong on def and atk. Brumbies haven’t been able to get any rhythm at all. Very little intensity from them.

  • Whoa. Yellow card handed out. I suspect it was due to the Brumbies player jumping up to make the tackle.

    JLP slots it easily.

  • Bulls monsters the Brumbies scrum and quick tap. Very very close to scoring their bonus point try but end up duffing it after a bad pass. Still they come back for a penalty. JLP slots it easily

  • @Windgat101 (Comment 54) : still don’t think so as they played 13 games and the teams around them only 11 – 12 games. But hey let’s see, two SA teams in playoffs would be nice.

  • @JD (Comment 55) :

    It’s true. The other teams have games in hand, but they are very very difficult games.

    The Waratahs have to play the Chiefs, Brumbies and Highlanders.
    The Highlanders and Crusaders have to play each other twice.
    The Hurricanes have to them all. The Force, the Crusaders and Brumbies.

    There will be blood! (on that side of the ocean)

    The Sharks and the Bulls will be the beneficiaries.

    Wooohooo:)
