    Province win.

    Bulls lose.

    All in all not a bad sporting weekend so far.

    Now for the Poms to take the ODI series. :lol:

    Great win by WP…well done boys.

    Now for the big one next week. Revenge will be in order, me thinks.

    Bring it on, Bullies!

    @ Nama:
    The Bulls and Lions still look a cut above to me, but it’s a game played on the field at the time. Pleased with our front row and some of the youngsters like Jones aho looks much more comfortable than Yaute at 12…

    @ Stormersboy:

    I agree with you….. Jones is quicker and more athletic than Jaco while he also has quite an “in your face aggressive” type of attitude.

    It also seems as if Dobson has discovered a gem of a player in Chris Cloete while Robert du Preez will now hopefuly also be given a chance to establish himself at number 10 in the team.

    Of the more experienced players in the team Nic Groom and Raynard Elstadt are playing really well at the moment.

    @ robzim:
    Yes i really enjoyed watching Cloete, a real dynamo, made the difference on the night.

    @ Stormersboy:
    Yes, I have to agree with you on that.

    But I do think we’ll be able to beat them at Newlands on Saturday. I think our pack has it in them to dominate up front and if they can keep the intensity up for 80 minutes, the Bulls won’t live with them.

    @ Nama:
    Yes the Bulls front row looks weak as usual so if we keep it tight and don’t give the dangerous outside backs any space we could be ok, but we will have to keep it clean and keep the errors down, something we have struggled to do this year.

    But yes we can do it.

    @ Stormersboy:
    Rugby sure has changed if WP supporters talk about their superior forwards while at the same time warn each other about the dangerous Blue Bulls back line players.

    Who would’ve thunk? Wink
