    Is dit die begin van die Bulle se opmars ? Ek het gesê as ons die Sharks en Chiefs kan wen, is ons weer op die regte pad. Nog een om te gaan.

    Bulle !

    @ Ben:
    hehe stadig ben. altwee spanne was maar swak. die tjarks was net baie kak

    a few ironical gems from jake:

    “We know what’s coming: Kicks from 9, kicks from 10, maul, a
    bit of variation.
    “Then kick from 9, kick from 10, maul.
    “That’s it.”

    jake calling his gameplan before the game.

    If they know what to expect from the Bulls, will the Bulls know
    what to expect from the Cell C Sharks?
    “We’ve been speaking about this first away game, it’s at altitude,
    it’s a hard ground, it’s a derby game and an opportunity to try
    some news things.
    “Not just because it’s the Bulls, but it’s the sixth week of the
    competition, our fifth game, and we probably need to evolve our
    game as we go along…

    Jakes big bluff

    Yet the sharks highly intelligent, complex and tacticaly genious lineout gets taken apart?

    “It’s easy to prepare against the Bulls,” says White.
    “You can take a video from last week, the week before, last
    year, five years ago.
    “You can probably click on any lineout and it’s exactly the same.

    @ MacroBull:
    Windgat, ek se Jake?
    En toe sien jou ou gat in Loftus se spieel…… Tounge-Out
    Kom aarde toe Jacob, jy is nie nou meer in Ozzie nie, moenie dat ons respek verloor nie…. Disapproval

    I hope this game showed how severely overrated beast and jannie is…AGAIN

    Morning all, and congratulations to the Bulls and Lions. I took Superbru off the Bulls win, but the Lions surprised many of us. Well played.

    I said something on Thursday:

    “The Sharks are not as good as people are saying and the Stormers are not as bad as people are saying.”

    I was half right.

    What this game showed was that the Bulls at Loftus is still another beast, having Vic, Dewaldt and Steggies back makes them a dangerous side and dominating the Sharks up front nullifies them to an extent.
    It must have been quite difficult for the Sharks to lose both Lambie and Reinach in the first couple of minutes, I don’t think any team will cope easily with losing their pivots so soon ( except the Stormers, losing Grant will be a blessing )

  • 362

    @Stormersboy, morning
    After a good first 4 games, my nemesis side, the Force started the rot, then I got Berried again against the Reds and the Bulls just plain surprised me

  • 363

    @ nortierd:
    Ja I thought of you when I saw the result. It would take a serious psychic to spot those upsets.

    Problem I have is when I pick the Force, they lose, and when I pick the Lions they might get a ref who actually officiated both sides and will also probably lose. I doubt Berry will be in their pocket again, if SANZAR don’t throw him out after yesterday, they will have no credibility left.
    Waratahs could take the Sharks this weekend

  • 365

    On a positive note I did jump 20 places in the RT Superbru pool thanks to the Bulls so all is not lost.

  • 366

    @ nortierd:
    That’s why one shouldn’t take this sort of thing too seriously. Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself!

    I wonder how Gena is feeling this morning.

  • 367

    @SB
    That’s great, I jumped in my pools for a change as well.
    If they carried on from the morning till after the Bulls game, wow, I would probably be comatose somewhere
    Delighted

    Fantastic match this, the BlitzBokke is letting themselves down with their handling in the second half

  • 375

    Another knock on, right on Fiji’s tryline

  • 376

    Bokke fought it up again right on the tryline, only for Fiji to run a length of the field try from the turnover
    26-19 to Fiji

  • 377

    Fiji being heavily penalized at the breakdown for constant infringements, Bokke hit back under the sticks
    26-26

    Fiji score the winner with 8 seconds left
    Wonderful game
    Well done both sides, pity Bokke couldn’t pull it off, but Fiji played well
    33-26 final score
    Fiji are champions

  • 379

    Well done Fiji… Your team was full of speedsters and when you got around our defense you scored. When we got through we were chased down and caught most of the time… A dismal weekend but fortunately the sun came out… Whistling

    @359
    In fairness, it wasn’t a walkover, just a 4 points margin at home and at altitude?

  • 381

    @ Hondo:
    It was not a walk over and it was a serious handicap to the sharks losing cobus and pat, but the Sharks were in tatters, I think the game was summed up when Kanko picked up the ball at the back of the scrum and ran and gave a ludicrous chip kick, they did not have a clue what was going on, lucky for them Fransie kept them in touch with the Bulls.

    The Bulls are by no means title contenders, but they sure showed how rattled the sharks can get wean their forwards are taken on… Alberts disappeared, Marcell was a one man loose trio but still got played into the ground by the “average” Stegman.
