Bulls cancel training session

    Cape Town - The Bulls have cancelled their training session for a second day in a row on Tuesday.

    According to it is something the men from Pretoria hardly ever do, but their bruising 32-10 pummelling against the Sharks last week appears to have taken its toll.

    Coach Frans Ludeke said there were too many niggling injuries in the squad.

    “It’s nothing really,” he said. “We just need to make sure we sort out all the niggles. There are a couple of small injuries and it doesn’t help to aggravate them. The players are still at Loftus, even though they’re not on the field, they’re at the physios and doing one-on-one sessions with the coaches.”

    Despite losing four of their last five matches, the men from Pretoria are still well in the race for the playoffs, sitting in fifth position on the overall log with 54 points.

    They take on the Lions in their last league game at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday and Ludeke says his charges are eager to bounce back after the disappointment in Durban.

    “We need to be more accurate this weekend and win. Losing is part of this competition and you need to take responsibility when you lose to come back and stand up and ensure you win again after that.”

    The clash at Loftus kicks off at 19:10 on Saturday night.
