Griquas thrash Blue Bulls

2012-09-15 17:24

Kimberley - Griquas asserted themselves as real contenders for this year's Currie Cup title by beating the Blue Bulls 49-34 on GWK Park in Kimberley on Saturday.

Griquas started at a ferocious pace and wing Rocco Jansen scored in the opening minute after the Bulls defenders were caught napping. Flyhalf Francois Brummer missed the conversion, but he kicked a penalty shortly after to give the hosts a handy eight point lead after only five minutes.

The Bulls could not get any momentum and it showed in their attack as well as on defence. Brummer kicked another penalty before the hosts again got over the tryline, with the Griquas centre Walter Venter running in for his five pointer after flank and captain Wesley Wilkins showed some good supportive play. Brummer converted.

It was Brummer himself that scored Griquas third try after the Bulls were left wanting again, but not before also kicking a clever little drop goal. Their defence in the first half was poor and the hosts took advantage of it.

The Bulls finally got on the board when scrum half Rudy Paige went over. Paige scored after the Bulls put together the first piece of decent attacking play. Flyhalf Louis Fouche converted to give the visitors something for all their effort.

The visitors also had the last say of the first half after hooker Willie Wepener dove over and Fouche converted. There must have been some stern words in the Bulls dressing-room during the break, because it was all the Bulls in the second half. They started well when Fouche kicked another penalty and came within striking distance after winger Akona Ndungane plucked a kick out of the air and beat all Griquas defenders to score a converted try. Griquas got some momentum back when a passage of loose play resulted in a try for the centre Jean Stemmet. Brummer couldn't convert, but he did convert the try of flank Marnus Schoeman shortly thereafter. Schoeman pounced on the ball behind the Bulls goalline after the visitors couldn't control their possession.

But the Bulls weren't done yet as prop Werner Kruger went over in the last ten minutes and Fouche converted to bring the visitors back within 12 points. Ill discipline put them back on the hind foot however, as the Bulls were pinned for infringing at the breakdown and Brummer kicked an easy penalty. Wing Richard Lawson scored soon afterwards for the hosts to put the final nail in the Bulls' coffin. Bulls flank CJ Stander scored a consolation try near the end.

Tries: Rocco Jansen, Walter Venter, Francois Brummer, Jean Stemmet, Marnus Schoeman, Richard Lawson

    Ag ons almal weet dat die Curriecup 'n totaal afgewaterde kompetisietjie is diejaar. Dis omtrent die Bulls se 4de span wat speel, die ander 3 is in die Bokgroep Dieselfde vlak as Vodacom nou. Go die Blou

      blou.johnny - 2012-09-15 18:18

      ...zero Currie cups for the toothless Cape Clowns..!. ...11 years... ..and counting...

      @isak Just shows you how strong Bulls rugby is. Imagine one of our top two teams could have played

      stirrer.stirrer.5 - 2012-09-15 18:28

      @will Dis reg, maar ons kan nog nie tot by 11 of selfs 17 tel nie. Leer ons asseblief

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-09-15 18:30

      Bwahahaha... Stirrer... I have heard some lame rationalisations in my life, but that is the most desperate one yet. So if WP wins your alter ego Blou johnny (who it seems has got stuck on one phrase) will say the Curry cup means nothing, WP haven't won the superrugby competition? you guys are really pathetic. Be like Renee - at least she acknowledges that her team is not playing well.

      stirrer.stirrer.5 - 2012-09-15 18:37

      @frans So is that untrue? Have the Stormers won the Supercup? Do you seriously think it's a Bulls A team that played today? (Greyling, Chilliboy, Flippie, Juandre, Potgieter, Stegman, Spies, Hougaard, Morne, Basson, Zane to name a few)

      willem.botha.5623 - 2012-09-15 18:57

      Vandat blou.johnny geleer copy en paste het is dit al wat hy se. Arme ou!

      Stirrer ons het julle dan nou die dag geleer om tot by 42 te tel

      Steven Trollip - 2012-09-15 20:30

  • ljmostert - 2012-09-16 13:12

    Ek sien al die Bulle se spanne het gister verloor - 0.19 en 0.21 ook! Dit na al die laaste paar jaar se spelerkopies - waar l? die fout?

  • jan.venter.5201 - 2012-09-16 21:43

    Die Bulle het n les gekry by spelers wat hulle gekweek het en toe ook weg gegooi saam met die afrigter hulle bly koop en ontwikkel nie meer hulle eie nie so ook nie n nuwe game plan nie en dit maak ons as getroue bulle supports die m...... in want ons het passie wat geld nie kan koop nie

  • moederstad.wp - 2012-09-17 11:39

    Bulls loss is better than a WP victory, even though we lost! Blou Johnny, so true what you say but you are well and truly on your way to the same record !!!! I would suggest try a new sentence if you can manage !!!!
