    Tank Bulls and an especially big thank you to Pres Zuma for bringing that special magic to them. You could see that magic rubbed of, because the BULLS were magnificent.

    GO BULLS!!!!! You deserve your victory!!!!! I love being a so called arrogant pigheaded bulls supporter!!!!! To the rest of you who want to comment about bulls supporters, GET A LIFE!!!!!!Your team didnt make it so deal with it. The comments about supporters booing is funny because we not going to roll out the red carpet. I have heard the bulls getting flak at most stadiums including the GUPPY tank and their supporters seem to be making the most noise. Lets hope and pray that Piet helium does'nt pick that clown Earl Rose or John Smit for the bok team. Both dead weight! Well done Bulls!!!!!!!

    Congratulations Bulls, great game. You’ve earned all my respect, especially after acknowledging the Lord for your victory. Romans 8:31 “If God is for you, no man can stand against you”.

  • neil A - 2009-06-01 08:14

    its days like these that make me think about the south african `kiwi` supporters who support opposing teams... ha ha ha suck on this one you tossers!

  • Cyberflake - 2009-06-01 08:16

    They only got time until 12 since the Sprinboks needs to be in Joburg this afternoon still, so that's why they have a shortened parade. Visit You'll find the info there.

  • Riaan - 2009-06-01 08:44

    Brilliant Performance by the bulls!Go Bulls!

  • JS - 2009-06-01 08:54

    They must also go and parade in Mamelodi or something, or Church Square at least.

  • skywalker - 2009-06-01 09:06

    Most deserved...I hope the supporters turn the Jackaranda city blue today...and how about the freedom of the city....Go Blue Bokke...!!!

  • Anonymous User - 2009-06-01 09:28

    You can call it....the parade of the best provincial team in the world!!!

  • Anonymous User - 2009-06-01 09:30

    Nicely done boys! But seriously why bring God into it? They went on like God was only with us and not the Chiefs. Pisses me off!

  • Nikki - 2009-06-01 10:14

    I'm such a proud Bulls supporter today I feel like a kid again that just wants to go outside & kick a ball around! Well done my beloved Bulls team! You showed you are true champions & I am so SO proud of you! Special & magic comes to mind when I think of that Final & even more so when I think of all you BLOODY YSTERS!!!! To all the Bulls fans: Stay humble even in the face of torment from other franchise supporters that call us common & have their two cents to add about us. By doing this you are showing them we are better people/supporters & this is reflected by the team we support! An intelligent person chooses an intelligent team, winners choose winners & a supporter who is successfull himself, supports success! Thanks to the Big Man upstairs for all HE has done for us/The Bulls & for keeping his hand over us! VIVA BULLS VIVA!!!!

  • Napoleon - 2009-06-01 11:10

    Yes Bulls julle is die beste!!!! Ons is trots op julle, well done!

  • Honest Mrwebo - 2009-06-01 11:13

    Well done South African Bulls !!! I am not a provincial rugby supporter but I heard a South African side won a Super 14 final and I`m thrilled . That parade needs to go into the townships as well and by doing that you`ll be promoting rugby in those arears also , the youngsters in the townships would appreciate a visit from their role models . Phambili Bulls, Phambili !!!

    @ Nikki...jy het 'n kerk nodig...en dringend ook!

  • Anonymous User - 2009-06-01 12:09

    There is always a sour supporter on forums like these, if you dont like loosing support some other sport. The BULLS are just going to keep om WINNING...Bulls you make us all very proud..!!!

  • Barry - 2009-06-01 12:20

    Well done to the Bulls, it was a great victory and I (never thought I'd say this) supported the Bulls to the hilt. A word of advice though .....leave God out of the equation. He is with both teams equally. Besides which I don't hear you (or any other team) giving Him the glory when you suffer a defeat! Let's just get with the program and leave religion out of sport!

  • Anonymous User - 2009-06-01 13:17

    Zuma was late on Friday! And please, the sod had nothing to do with the Bulls's season! Well done Bulls!

  • Lions supporter - 2009-06-01 13:58

    Well done!!! The Bulls had an awsome final, and a awsome season. Well done guys. And to the Bulls supporters, I was forced to change my opinion about you guys.. Man Loftus looked awsome with all those supporters in blue. I Hope that all the franchises would note that supporters mean alot to the team. I take my hat off to you guys,u played hard, supported hard, and I hope all the Bulls supporters partied hard...... I did>>>>>

  • Gtr - 2009-06-01 14:23

    Barry, if the Bulls want to thank their Creator, let them. IT says in the scripture if you acknowledge Him in all your ways, He will bless you. They never said God is exclusively a Bulls' fan, and they did say that He has blessed them with the talent, and that they've been fortunate with injuries... There are many other religious rugby players who thank God when they had a good game.. The Beast, Luke Watson, Rory Cockett, Juan Smith, Johan Muller and Jaco Van der Westhuyzen. Pele, the soccer star from Brazil also acknowledged God when he was playing, and from history we know how good that team was. In '95, when we won the WC, the 1st thing I can remember is Francois Pienaar going down on his knees to thank God.

  • Che - 2009-06-01 14:41

    Yes what a wonderful performance by the Bulls... all of the Rugby loving public supported this fabulous achievement. I salute you and now for the Lions... I do feel that the Bulls administrators should come out strongly against the idiot/s at Loftus who 15 years on still have the impudence brandishing the old Flag... what prehistoric rubbish is this?

  • Che - 2009-06-01 14:52

    Viva Bulls, Viva well done to a well oiled machine... I salute the Bulls for a job well done... I do however wonder why we cannot stick to the facts... The Bulls won, JZ supported them and so what. By calling people names and not even having the impudence to put down your own (Anonymous User) come on now... that tells me more about your ignorance than JZ punctuality... I do however take issue with the idiot/s brandishing the old Flag 15 years later... now Nikki there is cause for people to start going to church... I hope the Bulls management will come out strongly against these dinosaurs as we cannot have this still at sport events... nee kom nou genoeg moet nou genoeg wees... They had to actually zoom in onto the idiot and expose him nationally.

  • BUKSIE - 2009-06-01 14:53

    BLOU BLY BLOU EN DIE BULLE GETROU!!!!!!!!!! Daar is nog steeds IDIOTE wat wil glo die Bulle was "lucky"????? Breinlose, Rugbyleke wat niks van rugby af weet nie. Daar SOU GEEN SPAN, MAAK NIE SAAK VAN WATTER PLANEET NIE, die Bulle kon wen Saterdag nie. Dit was skitterende 15man rugby wat selde gesien word!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO BULLE!!!!!!!

  • Louis Uys - 2009-06-01 15:20

    The short prayer after the game is to be thankfull for the Talent and the Grace to play the game.

  • Anonymous User - 2009-06-01 15:43

    I love the Old flag! It looks much better than the Icecream flag that is branded on all our sports clothing of today! If they took of the Icecream flag I would buy a jersey and I think many more would be sold! Uit die blou van onse.......

  • Anonymous User - 2009-06-02 07:36

    Ons is trots op julle bulle "MAAK DIE BULLE BOKKE!!" TUNGSTEN SPIES!

  • Che - 2009-06-02 15:54

    @ Anonymous. I am not upset or offended at the views you are displaying, what saddens me is the fact that you chose such a public platform to show your "True Colours". I sincerely hope that your views are in the minority. Again I must reiterate that the Ice cream Flag you so callously and loosely refer to is the reason the Bulls could play and win with the support of moist South Africans.... Unfortunately I don’t think that you are Douw Steny and the possibility of your R500 making a difference in sales of Replica Jerseys is ... let’s just say wishful thinking... so by the way last time I checked Uit die Blou van onse Hemel features in the new South African Anthem... Can I also make a recommendation that you take your passport (the official document that allows you to travel) and ask anyone at Home Office to assist you with a relocation...
