As it happened: Hurricanes v Bulls
The Bulls went down 25-20to their hosts in Napier on Saturday, but picked up a number of injuries in the process.
Loose forwards Deon Stegmann and Dewald Potgieter, as well as flyhalf Jacques-Louis Potgieter were all forced to leave the field.
"Well done to Conrad and the boys," Bulls captain Flip van der Merwe
"They really put us under pressure and played us really well.
"We lost a couple of guys early on and made a couple of huge mistakes in our area and that cost us at the end of the night."
