    Thanks guys, now we needn't watch the game!

  • Dirk - 2012-06-01 14:17

    And the day we believe info from Sport 24 users is the day we need to retire from the internet... to save our species.

      Jaco - 2012-06-01 15:14

      Time to retire then.

      Tokolos - 2012-06-01 16:31

      You guys believe the fairy tale that Stormers24 tell you about how good the Stompies are... so why doubt this statement?

      Pomene - 2012-06-02 11:58

      @Dirk- What is amazing the swing from last night - Last night at 21h34 the percentages were Stormers 57,Bulls 41 and Draw 2% - What is happening overnight - Did JJ got involved.or are most of the Bull supporters are like photo's - developing best in the dark ?.......doesn't matter - only time will tell.............at Loftus at 21h00 we should know. I an however praying open eyes and hoping .....GO STORMERS !!!

  • PienkMasjien - 2012-06-01 14:18

    That goes without saying

  • Edward - 2012-06-01 14:33

    As a Stormer supporter living in Pretoria, I sure hope the sport24 readers are wrong, but now with Jean de Villiers in doubt, I am not so optimistic I was 2 weeks ago.

      Dirk - 2012-06-01 14:36

      Edward, relaaax... Stormers got it under control. : )

      Japjapjap - 2012-06-01 15:28

      @dirk- jy klink soos di ou weepee tanie wat hul karrietji 3 maal gerol het, natdt sy di oompie, met di selfde woorde gerus gestel het??

      Johan - 2012-06-01 15:33

      @Edward It will be worse for the Bulls if Jean is not playing. He is the most overrated and slowest centre in world rugby

      Dirk - 2012-06-01 15:41

      Hey Jap, wat kan ek sê, ek is een laidback blikemmer, soos Terence Hill wat lê en slaap op 'n seil en deur sy perd gesleep word.

      Stephen - 2012-06-01 15:43

      @Johan, nah Wynand "revolving door" Olivier is the benchmark for rubbish centres. He wrote the book.

      Johan - 2012-06-01 15:45

      @stephen Wynand hardloop al die kante om ou Jean. Ons roep hom Jean 4km/h in Pretoria

      Stephen - 2012-06-01 16:02

      @Johan, Wynand "not much of a speed bump' Olivier makes Jean De Villiers look like Usain Bolt.

      Johan - 2012-06-01 16:03

      @stephen You boring, sorry, done chatting with you

      Harold - 2012-06-01 16:04

      Stephen liking his own comment. Goodness me.

      Stephen - 2012-06-01 16:47

      Looks like there is not much to do in Danville, all the Bulls rabid fans are out in full on the forums.

      Tokolos - 2012-06-01 16:50

      Stephen is 'n Tappit!!!

      Japjapjap - 2012-06-01 18:17

      @dirk- goeie ou dae daarie! toe daar geen ander rugby spanne in SA was ni, behalwe Noord-Transvaal en WP... toe N-Transvaal, ook WP se gat gereeld geskop het, sonder rede of verskoning?? goeie dae daarie...! wil nou ni di bul uit di hok laat ni, maar daai knaap- mnr Terene Hill, lyk amper so goed soos ek, maar ek dink ek's miskien klein bietji meer 'koeler' as hy?? hahaha

      Roland - 2012-06-02 02:00

      Ek voel ook nie goed oor more se game nie, onder die omstandighede, maar...dit sal so f@$ken lekker wees as ons WEER daai pienk-tapids kan touwys!!!! All things aside, ek lewe in die groot hoop!!! Mmmmmmmmanlekker!!!!!!!

      So gepraat van tappits. Waar is die grootste ENGINE in the wereld? Op Nuweland. As the Stormers daar speel dan raas 45000 Tappits.

  • John - 2012-06-01 14:37

    it will still be a great game. the new faces will play game of their life tomorrow to play the old guys out.

      John - 2012-06-01 14:44

      @pienk. gaan cheap jou ma wat daarvan!!!! Kapish..

      PienkMasjien - 2012-06-01 14:46

      You're a habit I'd like to kick - with both feet.

      Harold - 2012-06-01 15:05

      Pienk, your foot might get stuck in his hole. I've got a feeling he has a big one.

      John - 2012-06-01 15:24

      Harrold, you remind me of Mallema, not so famous but so f.......up!

      PienkMasjien - 2012-06-01 15:31

      @john, You Think Like Malema

      Harold - 2012-06-01 15:36

      John, you can't even spell my name, even with it right in front of you, now you want to insult my intellegence. You just made a big fool of yourself.

      Stephen - 2012-06-01 16:06

      Harold is probably that Lloyd character who was so thick even McDonalds wouldnt hire him.

      Harold - 2012-06-01 16:06

      Stephen, you can't even spell 'Lloyd'. Is it national dyslexia day, or what's going on.

      Stephen - 2012-06-01 16:09

      Wow a thicko Bulls supporter uses Google wow thats a first

      Harold - 2012-06-01 16:22

      Doesn't take away your dyslexia, though.

  • Johan - 2012-06-01 15:32

    It's like getting people to vote if the sun will rise tomorrow. OBVIOUSLY!!!

      Hugo Klaasen - 2012-06-03 10:28

      Whahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  • Johan - 2012-06-01 15:47

    Hi foeitog, en om te dink na die naweek val die Stormers van 2 tot 5 op die log en na volgende naweek uit die top 6 uit. 17 jaar sonder 'n koppie, dis darem een rekord wat julle het Stompies. Geen span sal dit ooit regkry om 17jr sonder 'n koppie te gaan nie.

      John - 2012-06-01 15:51

      die bokke jol volgende naweek. ons sal net in 4de plek inval of nogsteeds in 2de bly!!! mieskien val jul onder die shark. yes please!

      Johan - 2012-06-01 15:56

      @John Die Crusaders het klaar meer punte as Stompies, julle is net 2de oor 'n SA conference onder top 3 moet wees. So ruk net bietjie jou kop dat jou ore jou kan wakker klap dan gaan kyk jy gou weer na die log. Na die naweek is julle 5de!

      PienkMasjien - 2012-06-01 16:05

      Het Jy Disleksie,selfs malema kan beter spel

      Harold - 2012-06-01 16:25

      Pienk, it seems like all the Stormers supporters are struggling a little.

      Tania - 2012-06-02 07:26

      He'll Johan! Jy moet definitief n sienner wees of met die \helm\ gebore wees? Waarom laat jy nie sommer die uitslag van die volgende vyf jaar se super 15/16 wedstryde op die beker grafeer nie en terwyl jy daarmee besig is, gee sommer vir my vannaand se lottonommers ook. Jou voorspellings laat my dink aan die van n \toordokter\ jy kan goed geld maak met sulke talente.

      raymond.abrahamse - 2012-06-02 08:36

      WINNING THE CURRIE CUP FIVE YEARS IN A ROW HAS NEVER BEEN EQUALLED BY ANY OTHER TEAM.THE BULLS TRIED BUT FAILED MISERABLY.

      Pomene - 2012-06-02 12:11

      @Johan Goos - Jy is dommer as jou comments skaap - Kom ons se Bulls wen en Lions wen met 5 punte dan (Stormers 50/Bulls 48 +4 = 52) / Sharks (45+5 = 50) so Bulls 2/Stormers 4 en Sharks no 5 - Wen die Stormers en Sharks met 5 dan lyk dit so ( Stormers 54 (2)/ Sharks 50 (5) en Bulls 48 (6 of 7) - Moenie jou kop skud nie want jy gaan niks hoor nie !!!!!

      Johan - 2012-06-02 15:16

      @dom Pomene Praat van stupid jou absolute aap!! Jy skryf "as die Lions wen" maar gee die punte vir die Sharks! Foietog. Wanneer, nie as, die Bulls gewen het sal die puntestand so lyk: 1) Chiefs 58 2) Bulls 53 (ja dis korrek, hulle gaan met 'n bonuspunt wen) 3) Brumbies 49 4) Crusaders 51 5) Stormers 50 STORMERS = 5DE!!!!!!!! JOU TOTALE IDIOOT

      Hugo Klaasen - 2012-06-03 10:26

      Hahaha, eet jou woorde...kyk waar lê die Nulle...5de

  • Claude - 2012-06-01 16:34

    The Stormers are dropping like flies and so the Bulls at home must start favourites but they could still get a big surprise.

  • raymond.abrahamse - 2012-06-01 18:02

    One has got to realistic about the whole thing.The Bulls will take this one quite comfortably.Current form and home ground advantage will see them go to the top of the log.From a STORMER.

  • Willie - 2012-06-01 18:17

    As a Cheetah supporter I am looking forward to a hard fought game by two super teams. My wish who must win? May the best team win and may the cream of the two teams selected for the Boks, make us proud when they play England

  • theo.dupreez - 2012-06-01 23:51

    I will be satisfied with any outcome if our boys in blue and white give their level best, and I think they will! For a change we are not the favorites, which suits us just fine. I personally think our defence will hold and hope that Jebb Sinclair have his best game yet, which could change the whole game. Either Stormers sneak it, or Bulls by 3 to 6.

  • arnold.pekeur1 - 2012-06-02 07:39

    Just talk...what matters though is what's gonna go down on da pitch!

  • magau.thomas - 2012-06-02 07:51

    Yes the bulls will overcame the stomers to win the conference

  • frans.visserdsb - 2012-06-02 08:08

    I will be at the game - and hoping the Stormers can do it. I think the Bulls have the edge due to home ground advantage, but we still have a chance if only because Wynand is playing... lol. whatever happens, we should have 3 teams in the top 6 after this weekend...The Sharks should take 5 from the Lions, leaving them on 50, and the only real issue in the Bulls/Stormers game is who is at the top of the SA conference after the weekend. However, after the test series break, The Stormers will have some of their players back (Schalk, Duane, etc.) and have only three relatively easy games left - Cheetahs, Lions and Rebels from which they should get at least 12 points, leaving them on 62-66 points... depending on this afternoon. (Ok, Cheetahs could be tricky..) This should be enough to guarantee a spot in the top 6. The Bulls and Sharks have to play each other - one has to lose. The Sharks have the Lions, Cheetahs and Bulls, as well as a bye. Therefore at least 12-15 points, with possibly up to 19 points. Personally i think they will beat the Bulls in Durban, but that's just me - the Bulls players will have been involved in the Test matches, as it seems likely that Heineke is only going to change the Bulls team strip. Not too many Sharks and Stormers likely to be chosen... This would leave the Sharks on anything between 57 and 64 points. The Bulls are facing the Stormers, Sharks, Lions and Cheetahs. This could give them at least 8-12 with a max of 20. leaving them on 60-68 points..

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-06-02 08:23

      Therefore, logically the Stormers should be in the playoffs, as should the Bulls and Sharks. the Big games that will determine the conference winner is this afternoon and the Bulls Sharks game on the 6th. The Aussies have the Brumbies (on 49) and the Reds (on 44) in possible contention. The Kiwis have two, maybe 3 sides in contention - the Chiefs and Crusaders on 53 and 51 (who still have to play each other) and the Highlanders. only one of the Highlanders and Reds could go through - they still have to play each other as well..My predition - SA to have 3 sides in the play-offs, NZ 2 and the Aussies 1....

  • Henk - 2012-06-02 08:26

    No the stormers gonna show the bulls how to play rugby at loftus bulls sucks u no it show u how many times did the bulls lose and how many do the stormers lose so bulls all I have to say is u gonna lose once again sorry

      marko.miladinovic.52 - 2012-06-02 14:58

      Has anyone tried reading this idiots comment, makes no sense. Probably the class of person he is.

  • raymond.abrahamse - 2012-06-02 08:51

    STORMERS-STILL THE MOST POPULAR TEAM AND STILL DRAW THE BIGGEST CROWDS,THAT IS WHY LOFTUS IS BOOKED OUT TO-DAY.WHAT OTHER S15 TEAM CAN ATTRACT SUCH A HUGE CROWD.IT IS LIKE THE OLD NORTHERN TRANSVAAL vs WESTERN PROVINCE DAYS.IN THE SPIRIT OF THE GAME,IT WAS GOOD RUGBY PLAYED BY TWO GREAT TEAMS.

  • Pieter - 2012-06-02 11:55

    Typical Big mouth blue bull supporters

  • dawiej - 2012-06-02 12:13

    I am a staunch stormer supporter, but we have just to many of our better players injured to pull it off. That said, let them rest now, and be stronger for the playoffs. The bulls will fall against the sharks, and then we can relaim our spot.

  • Jaci - 2012-06-02 13:05

    sssst bule hou net julle b@kke os praat na die game stormers by 17 plus bonus point!!!!

      marko.miladinovic.52 - 2012-06-02 14:54

      Hahahah lekker groot bek, leer bietjie spel en om alles in Afrikaans te tik.

  • marko.miladinovic.52 - 2012-06-02 14:49

    The Stormers are trying to hang the favorite to win tag on the Bulls. Let's see. Stormers ahead on the log, Stormers 2 losses to the Bulls 4 and they just come off a close loss to the Sharks and the Bulls have lost their last 2 games. Sorry in my eyes that makes the Stormers favourite. Go the underdog Bulls, rub those pink jerseys into their faces!

  • Wesley Shuttes - 2012-06-02 19:08

    Stormers to win

  • Carol - 2012-06-02 21:54

    I trust that most people who left comments on this thread are feeling a little bit idiotic now that the Stormers beat the pink bulls and the lions beat the sharks. Go Stormers.

  • Eben - 2012-06-03 08:07

    HOE VOEL DIT?

  • Eben - 2012-06-03 08:10

    HOE VOEL DIT? Ek was daar en en was lekker - natuurlik sal die Blou Nulle weer Mnr. Kaplan se kop wil he - maar nou ja - dis nooit hulle skuld nie. Dis altyd die skeidsregter... sê jul wat msikein was dit die skeidsregter toe julle so paar wedstryde gewen het? Maar nou ja... O ja - dankie Leeus!

      Johan - 2012-06-04 01:24

      @Eben Hoe ver vorentoe was Kolisi se pass na Habana? 4tree of 5

      daniel.malan3 - 2012-06-06 15:50

      Om eerlik te wees het die meeste beslissings Bulle se kant toe gegaan. Malherbe kaart en Botha nie? Vreemd dat dit dieselfde oortreding was? Greyling wat nie kan skrum nie maar strafskoppe kry? Stormers het verdien om te wen en die ref kon nie eens die Bulle red nie. @Johan jy moet dalk vir n oogtoets gaan by Mnr Lawrence dink jy nie? As daai forward was, is ek die president. Ek neem aan jy sal ook se die Bulle se drie was een al was dit duidelik op n WP voet gewees, vra die kommentators...Engels en Afrikaans

  • nicolette.louw - 2012-06-03 09:02

    Haha oh how the tables have turned...the main reason the Bulls lost? They got cocky after the Stormers got yellow carded. Rule number 1 in warfare? Never underestimate your opponent. Stormers, you guys make me proud to walk around Pretoria in my Capetonian colours :)

  • melt.vanaarde - 2012-06-03 11:01

    AL WAT EK KAN SE AAN DIE SKRYWER EN TOKEflippenLOS is EAT YOUR HEART OUT HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA.
