Bulls have 'new' dimension

Cape Town - Western Province's backline coach Robbie Fleck believes the Bulls have added a different dimension to their game since Pine Pienaar started coaching them.

Apart from dominating their opponents physically and dictating play via clever tactical kicking, Fleck believes they are now also more potent on attack and he can clearly see Pienaar's influence on their play.

He still expects the Bulls to use the massive boots of flyhalf Francois Brummer and fullback Jurgen Visser and for them to try and dominate up front, but he expects them to also be more of an attacking threat than in the past.

"Pine Pienaar has brought an attacking aspect to their game, which, according to me should have happened year's ago," Fleck told Marco Botha from Die Burger.

"Thus we would not only need to be tactically sharp, but we will also need to build on our good defensive record of the last two weeks." (against Griquas and the Leopards)

But Fleck is confident that his young charges could withstand the attacking onslaught from the Bulls.

"We have a bunch of young players that are eager to learn and want to try new things as quickly as possible. That's partly why we defend so well, but it's also why we have a centre combination like Tim Whitehead and Johann Sadie that combines well. They learn form Bok centres that have played over 60 Tests."
