    Let’s see if they can keep it up for the full 80 minutes

  • Half time
    Bulls 13 HLD 13

    Bulls dominating set pieces and up front physically. However whenever the game gets scrappy and unstructured the HLDers are excelling. HLDers are running from anywhere. From that first half the Highlanders will certainly be far happier with that score than Bulls.

  • I find the defence of driving mauls to be a real problem with current rules/reffing. Unless you get the early sack its pretty much impossible to defend a driving maul with out conceding a penalty.

  • @gregkaos (Comment 44) : Ok well I am sitting on my ass :D. So I will happily take over. Landers defend 3, 5m driving mauls, concede to penalties, but get the ball through a knock on eventually.

  • Great match to watch. Bulls were good in the first 25 to 30 mins and then fell apart. I called Highlanders by 4. Good result for the Sharks not so good for S.A. Outside centre for the Landers, Malakai Fikitoa, was superb. So was flyhalf Sopoaga. Cant wait for our crunch game at Ellis park tomorrow. Hoping for a Chiefs loss tomorrow too to boost us up the log.
