    Yip, great player in open play, strong and nippy….but he gets bogged down behind the scrums. @ Puma:

    At least I get the consolation 300 again… hehehe

  • 303

    Oh well that’s hard to have lost but congratulations Crusaders, hope Sharks do better. Even though had said last week that think winner this year would be Chiefs or Crusaders still hoped somehow we could win today.

    @ Puma:
    yUP bOET, NERVOUS AS HELL

    Rest well Bulls… the bodies and the minds needs it, badly.

    No Bulls player stands out, having had a good game, but Morné Steyn certainly had a very poor game today.

  • 306

    Puma, you’re missing my point.

    Refs, just like the players will make mistakes. However, we supporters have the opportunity to assess what or who contributed to our team’s success or failure.

    And we choose to believe the same things all the time: if our side wins then our players get the credit. However, should our side lose we blame the ref!

    We should move on a bit from these mindsets, don’t you think?

    Congrats Bulls on a great season after loosing so many staatmakers!

    You’ll be stronger for the experience next year.

    Wat sê dit virrie Toetsreeks? Morné worry my … ek sou dink ‘n losskakel wat (saam met sy spanmaats) sy span na die top of the log kon neem, die beste verdedigingsrekord in die Super 15 kompetisie het en ook van die hoogste sukses% met pale toe skop, sal ‘n outomatiese keuse wees, maar hy word nie eers genoem julle op die forum nie? Bleddie weird ek sê … :)

    OK ek het huistoe gekom , ge-eet en al jul kundige kommentaar gelees.

    Ek het die wedstryd op Radio 2000 geluister , moet se die manne was darem patrioties , dus was daar so bietjie Bul sentiment.

    Op gehoor gebaseer sal ek dit se,

    Bulle was nie eens daar nie, heeltemal “overawed” wel dit is hoe dit geklink het.
    As ek die tyd het sal ek my mening oor die Bulle se 2012 “campaign” gee maar in kort ons het nie n semi finaal verdien nie, KLAAR.

    nou so bietjie reaksie van wat ek hier gelees het.

    #241 – 4man , ja Appelblaar het nou gevorder van n padstal/kwekery na n “full blown” tuin ontwerp sentrum. Ek het nog altyd n passie gehad daarin om tuine te “design” en ek het my eie styl, en JA dit werk hier in ons omgewing. Ek is meer in die “harde rots” en water “features. Ek gaan net meer en meer besig word. Ek is natuurlik nie so erg behep met geld nie, die passie is groter, maar ja ek “cash tog bietjie in. Hel ek kan ure praat oor hierdie “venture” wat ek so lank onderdruk het deur by Telkom te bly……

    #264 – stem

    #284 – Pieta ja die Coach het bietjie gefaal met sy span keuses en blindelingse lojaliteite – Morne was “hondkak” die jaar…. hoeveel games het hy ons gekos 4/5 of meer. Kyk ons het Ruan gebraai toe hy nie kon raakskop nie, Morne is kak onbetroubaar. Ook lyk Hougie se begeerte om die volgende Joost, FduP of Tommie du Plessies te wees soos n Pipe dream. Dan die kersie op die koek Spies , as kaptein, was die grootste fout van die jaar. Dit het die Coach se hande gebind, wonder wie se aanstelling dit was.

    As die HM sn was het hy baie gou geleer. Daarom dat hy eers die span saamgestel het en toe n kaptein vir die Bokke gekies het. Was dit FL sn het hy saam sy lojaliteit gesink.

    Die Bulle se s15 seisoen is nou gelukkig oor maar laat ek dit se die regte span het vandag gewen. Hoop die Bulle herbou op n totaal nuwe game plan en dat ons bietjie meer van Slapchips se idees gebruik.

    Ek moet een ding se die Sharks vs Stormers game het verdien om n S15 finaal te wees. Sterkte aan die twee mag die beste een wen.

    Moenie lieg nie. Daai goed op 2000 het meer geperve oor die Saders as enige iets anders. Mac Mesina = Doos

    Ag no thats a shame just seen the bad news of detail of Bjorn Basson’s injury from Blue Bulls on facebook, it must have been nasty, as I didn’t watch the game can anyone say how he picked up the injury please? All the best to Bjorn hope he recovers soon and doesn’t suffer too much. Here is the message: “Vodacom Bulls winger Bjorn Basson underwent surgery in New Zealand on Sunday after he sustained a tear to his intestines during his side’s 28-13 loss to the Crusaders in Christchurch on Saturday.
    Basson was forced off the field during the first half of the play-off match, the third injury the visitors sustained in the opening forty minutes.
    He was operated upon at 03h00 Sunday morning (NZ time).
    B…asson will remain in hospital for at least another five days and will have to stay in New Zealand for five more days before he will be able to fly long haul, Blue Bulls Company CEO Barend van Graan confirmed on Sunday.
    “Our team doctor, Org Strauss, stayed behind to look after Bjorn when the rest of the squad departed for home via Sydney,” Van Graan confirmed.
    “We have informed his wife of his injury which will keep him off the field for at least six weeks.”
    The Bulls will arrive back in Johannesburg on Monday at 16h15.
    Medical updates will be provided as they become available.”

    Maybe Le Roux can get a chance now who for me is one of the most under rated wingers in this country. But hey who’s going to choose Freestate wingers to play for SA.

    Please guys leave Morne alone. Like I said the Bulls pack who use to dominate the opposition is not there anymore. Steyn is now having to play behind a losing pack and is struggling. That what pissed me off about the commentary going on about Carter. Not only did they fail to notice his pack bullied the Bulls but they also fail to realize that Carter have never in his life played behind a losing pack. Never ever.
