  • @Dunx (Comment 4) : Whats sad is that the Blues at the bottom of the NZ conference are 3 points shy of 2nd place SA conference with a game in hand.

  • Considering they pumped us at home, scored 4 tries and kept us tryless they probably will feel agrieved about that.

  • That SA conference is looking sad.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 9) : The Bulls have lost 5 games by 7 and less and have drawn 1, with a bit of luck on their side they may have won a 2 or 3 of those games and the table would then at least look a bit better, from a SA perspective.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 10) : The bottom 3 is what troubles me 😐

  • Yep the bottom 3 have been very poor, no thats unfair to the Lions who have really punched above their weight without really threatening the foreigners.

  • @RedSharkUtd82 (Comment 14) : ja not a lot of people saw this one coming but with the NZ conference being so close is is hardly a surprise that upsets happen.
