  • Stormers attack…they are certainly FAR more fluent and dangerous than the Bulls…and they win a penalty…

  • Bulls continue after the hooter…but stuff it up as Matfield gets tackled back…and that’s halftime. Poor stuff for the Bulls…pretty good play by the Stormers. But for a few mistakes they could’ve been mich further ahead than the 16-0 they lead by…

  • I sure hope Heynecke is not considering Francois Hougaard as his Bok scrumhalf replacement for Fourie du Preez!! If his service was any slower it would be like the service you get from ESKOM!! :mrgreen:

  • And then an overlap is stuffed up royally by Hougaard, who passes it behind, in front of and between everyone to no one…

  • This is not going to help an already scrappy game…or the Bulls in getting the win and bonus point the need to have a faint chance of reaching the playoffs…

  • @vanmartin (Comment 23) : The Stormers looked pretty good in the first half, but silly mistakes in the Bulls 22 cost them points. In the second half both sides have been super swak!
