The last game of the weekend sees the Bulls take on Jake White’s Brumbies outfit, a game that should really only spell five points for the Bulls, especially playing at Loftus. I expect the Brumbies to hold on for the first half, but that the Bulls will overpower them in the second half to record a rather big score.

The Bulls come off a win over the Lions last weekend, which meant another five points for the Pretoria based team, and with another four at least coming after this game, they are building a head of steam before they take on their tour. Their team is almost unchanged, with Dean Greyling the only potential change, should he not be fit enough.

The Brumbies start their tour against tough opposition, and will look to the game against the Lions next weekend to score some points. Christian Lealiifano is the man to watch in the backline, as he by far the more creative of the two flyhalves, and has the better kicking record so far in this competition.

Bulls: Zane Kirchner, Akona Ndungane, JJ Engelbrecht, Wynand Olivier, Bjorn Basson, Morne Steyn, Francois Hougaard, Pierre Spies (c), Jacques Potgieter, CJ Stander, Juandre Kruger, Wilhelm Steenkamp, Werner Kruger, Chiliboy Ralepelle, Dean Greyling/Dawie Steyn.

Replacements: Bongi Mbonambi, Frik Kirsten, Gerrit-Jan van Velze, Arno Botha, Jano Vermaak, Louis Fouche, Johann Sadie

  • Forgive me Father for I am sinning. I am enjoying watching a Bulls game FAR more than watching my beloved Sharks.

    As repentance I shall watch the Sharks again next weekend.

    PS: Apologies to those with more faith than me. 😉

  • @rhineshark (Comment 2) : I’m supporting the Stormers to win the SR this year. Never in my life will I be able to support the Bulls against anyone.

  • @Ben (Comment 3) : I will always support a South African side against one of the NZ or Aussie ones, except when it effects us. Since we have deemed it not impotant to compete in the last 4 year´s worth of Super rugby competitions, I seldom have had to resort to going against this rule. Sad hey?? 😥 😥 😥

  • @Ben (Comment 3) : I cannot ‘support’ either of the Bulls or Stormers. Imagine the sight of the Stormers holding up the trophy and the ensuing year long cacophony of crowing from their fans? No thanks 🙂

    I am backing the Lions or the Cheetahs to win Super rugby this year. 😀

  • Bulls scored off a clear knock on. What was Jonker smoking?

  • Brumbies scored 4 tries and kept the Bulls to only 2.

    7 PKs from Steyn, they are VERY lucky he sorted his kicking out. 🙂

    Bulls 36 – 34 Brumbies

    After the Brumbies were down by 16 points with 3min to go and down by 20 with 11 to go.

    Jake White is a crap coach all right.
