  • Who would have thought a blue bulls side running from almost anywhere.
    Regardless of the score, it sure is good to watch a young side run and not kick all day to take the safest option.

  • Good game and great result for the Sharks 🙂

    I think Gio Aplon showed why I think he shouldn’t play for the Boks. As amazing as he is ball in had, his defence isn’t the best. I guess when you weigh 78 kg it’s hard to impose yourself in tackles against a huge loose forward!

  • Well well, if the Bulls played like this last month, against the same opposition – 12/13 of the same players – and the week after…

  • Very well done Bulls, really surprised me. They deserved to win this game

    As for Province, very disappointing, considering the team fielded and their home ground advantage. Similar situation to the Sharks other than that the Sharks have an excuse of a new coaching setup and a dodgy ref.

  • Oh look, a young KZN-schooled Number 13 carving it up for another province whilst we contract Marius Joubert
