    Cape Town - Vodacom Bulls skipper Flip van der Merwe was left ruing a number of basic errors - and mistakes - after their defeat the Hurricanes.

    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 said post-match.

    "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."

    The Bulls next play the Highlanders in Dunedin on Friday, April 11 (09:35), before moving to Australia to tackle the Waratahs (Saturday, April 19 at 11:40) and the Force (Saturday, April 26 at 11:40).
