11:21 - TWEET

Bulls had enough possession to win this one but use if the ball is just so sterile - yet nothing being done about it - Dan Retief


11:20 - Thanks for tuning in. In next weekend's Round 10 action, the Highlanders have a bye, while the Bulls travel to Sydney to face the Waratahs (Saturday, April 19 at 11:40).


11:18 - FULL-TIME: Highlanders 27-20 Bulls

Just too many mistakes from the Bulls costing them dearly! More than a dozen knock-ons in the second half alone paint a bleak picture on the error front.


11:18 - CONVERSION by Potgieter gives the Bulls a losing bonus point.


11:17 - TRY! Replacement Marcel van der Merwe barges over after the hooter had sounded. The Highlanders aren't happy, they think it was a double movement, but the try stands...

Potgieter to kick for a losing bonus point, about 15 metres to the left of the uprights...


11:16 - Another penalty gives the Bulls one last attacking lineout...


11:15 - Inside the final minute now as the Bulls fight for a losing bonus point...


11:14 - The Bulls win their third tighthead in the game - but then AGAIN lose it forward. Unbelievable!


11:13 - With only three minutes left, that was probably the Bulls' last chance...


11:11 - The move ends, with - yes you guessed it - a Bulls knock-on. Flyhalf Potgieter the culprit.

12 knock-ons now in the second half!


11:11 - Bjorn Basson almost in at the corner for the Bulls, but great scramble defence stops him short.


11:09 - They can't score, but get another scrum, only to see the hosts win a turnover...


11:08 - Another scrum penalty, another attacking lineout. Can they hold onto it this time?


11:07 - SECOND HALF HANDLING ERRORS

Highlanders 2
Bulls 11!!!


11:06 - Can you believe it, another knock on!

Bumbling Bulls!


11:05 - The new front row seems to work better as the Bulls win a penalty inside their own half. They set up an attacking lineout close to the tryline...


11:04 - Super Rugby debut for William Small-Smith, who replaces fullback Jurgen Visser.


11:03 - Marcel van der Merwe is now also on at prop for Werner Kruger. Whole new front row for the Bulls now. That early scrum dominance has disappeared...


11:02 - The Bulls are their own worst enemies here. Knock-on after knock-on costing them dearly.


10:58 - Oh, dear nothing working now for Bulls.

This time Hougaard kicks it out on the full. Perhaps the Oscar Zombie-Stopper video is still on his mind...? The Highlanders get a chance to attack...


10:58 - PICTURE

10:57 - Coach Frans Ludeke immediately responds by replacing him with Ulrich Beyers...


10:56 - Better defence on the third attempt forces the Bulls to swing it wide, and then centre Jan Serfontein drops it cold!


10:54 - A cross-kick from Potgieter doesn't work for the Bulls but the referee again goes back for a penalty.

Also an official warning against the Highlanders. They can't transgress at the next lineout maul...


10:53 - But the Bulls try again and come close to scoring with a dominant lineout maul... Just held up, but the hosts are penalised...


10:52 - TWEET

Bulls simply must go shopping for a full-on opensider!! - Rob Houwing


10:51 - Just when the Bulls get some hope they concede a penalty close to the Highlanders line for holding on...


10:50 - TWEET

Might as well get Pollard on and hope for an "Ikey" ... - Front Row Grunt


10:49 - Morné Mellet is now on at prop for Dean Greyling.


10:47 - Potgieter adds to Bulls' misery by kicking the restart directly into touch. Basic error! No excuse for that.


10:47 - CONVERSION by Sopoaga.

Highlanders 27-13 Bulls after 55 minutes.


10:46 - TRY! Centre Malakai Fekitoa scores under the posts after a concerted period of attack, which saw the Bulls slip numerous tackles...


10:45 - The game seems to be opening up now, both teams full of running. This will suit only one side I'm afraid...

10:42 - BULLS CAPTAIN OFF!

Bulls skipper Flip van der Merwe limps off, replaced by Paul Willemse.


10:40 - Holes appearing in the Bulls defence now. 12 tackles slipped so far... 


10:39 - BULLS REPLACEMENT

Bongi Mbonambi on at hooker for Callie Visage.


10:37 - After the Bulls bossed the game with some impressive running early on, the Highlanders have responded in fine fashion here... Looking to run the Bulls off their feet.


10:37 - CONVERSION by Sopoaga.

Highlanders 20-13 Bulls after 45 minutes.


10:35 - TRY! No 6 Gareth Evans scores for the hosts after a remarkable outside break from No 13 Malakai Fekito.

The try was set up with the hosts counter-attacking from inside their own half!


10:33 - In a blow for the hosts, experienced lock Brad Thorn limps off. Jarrad Hoeata replaces him.


10:31 - OUCH! Highlanders wing Patrick Osborne makes a massive tackle on Bulls counterpart Bjorn Basson. Luckily Basson gets up...

It looked like a promising Bulls move when Piet van Zyl again broke blindside from a scrum, but Basson was floored in no time before losing the ball...


10:29 - Welcome back for the second half. Potgieter gets play under way...


10:26 - PICTURE

10:17 - HALF-TIME: Highlanders 13-13 Bulls

Great comeback from the hosts in the last 10 minutes here...


10:16 - Oh, dear, the Bulls lose if close to the line and the 'Landers counter. They win a penalty on their own 22m line and Sopoaga brings relief on the stroke of half-time...


10:15 - The Bulls hot on the attack after No 10 Potgieter breaks through in midfield following a scrum...


10:13 - PENALTY by Sopoaga.

Highlanders 13-13 Bulls after 37 minutes.

Just like that, the scores are level!


10:12 - The hosts seem to have a new lease on life. They attack close to the Bulls 22m area and win a penalty when the men from Pretoria go off-side...

Easy three points coming up!


10:10 - Sopoaga CONVERTS from close to the posts.

Highlanders 10-13 Bulls after 33 minutes.


10:09 - TRY AWARDED! The TMO rules that the ball was passed backwards from Treeby before going forward off a Bulls player, with Sopoaga catching it to sprint clear...

Looks like the correct call was made!


10:08 - TRY OR NO TRY?

After a break by centre Shaun Treeby, No 10 Lima Sopoaga dives over but the referee wants to check for a forward pass...


10:06 - The Bulls launch another attack up to the Highlanders 22m area, but are penalised for holding on.

Relief for the hosts, who clearly look flustered by the Bulls onslaught...


10:02 - But they're also playing a great running game! Three line-breaks already and 130 metres run, compared to 90 metres from the home side...


10:00 - Three areas the Bulls are dominating in at present: Scrums, lineouts and the aerial game.

All traditional strong points of their game!

9:54 - PENALTY converted by Sopoaga.

Highlanders 3-6 Bulls after 20 minutes.


9:53 - The Bulls cynically transgress and this time the hosts opt for the points...


9:51 - Highlanders almost score after running it from inside their own 22! Scintillating running play. They win a penalty five metres out and opt for a lineout...


9:51 - Highlanders off the hook as the Bulls are penalised for going off their feet at a ruck. 


9:49 - Bulls winning the early scrum battle. They win another penalty there on halfway. It sets up an attacking lineout inside Highlanders territory...


9:48 - TWEET

Jan Serfontein accused of having print on his hands, and probably true, but fantastic little break ... 0-3 - Front Row Grunt


9:47 - PENALTY converted by Potgieter.

Highlanders 0-6 Bulls after 12 minutes.


9:46 - A brilliant break in midfield from centre Jan Serfontein sees the Bulls back in the 22m attacking zone. They win a penalty in front after the hosts slow the ball down at a ruck...


9:43 - TIGHTHEAD!

Bulls win a scrum tighthead inside the Highlanders 22 and get a chance to attack...

Great old-school hook from Callie Visagie!


9:42 - Great counter-attack by Francois Hougaard, who is playing on the left wing today. 


9:40 - Highlanders respond by attacking inside the Bulls 22m area... but the move goes awry with a knock-on and the Bulls counter up-field!


9:38 - PENALTY kicked by Jacques-Louis Potgieter.

Highlanders 0-3 Bulls after 3 minutes.

Terrific start by the Bulls!


9:38 - Penalty in front of the posts as he hosts are caught off-side...


9:37 - No surprise as Matfield wins the first lineout as the Bulls attack inside the Highlanders 22...


9:36 - Bulls win an early penalty at scrum time after the home side had knocked on at the kick-off...

The Bulls will look to dominate at set piece today!


9:35 - Highlanders flyhalf Lima Sopoaga starts proceedings...


9:32 - Centurion Kruger leads out the Bulls, who are playing in their camouflage khaki away kit today.


9:26 - The Bulls may have lost a few players, but it means Victor Matfield is back playing this week!

He will prove vital in the lineouts and his experience was dearly missed in the 25-20 loss to the Hurricanes last week.


9:24 - Can the Bulls become the first SA side this year to win in Australasia? Nine losses on the trot for SA sides paint a bleak picture in 2014!


9:22 - WELL DONE!

Bulls prop Werner Kruger is set to become the 26th South African Super Rugby centurion and also the fifth SA front ranker to do this.

    There's another scrum indiscretion from the hosts and predictably Potgieter puts the ball into touch at the corner flag in a bid to launch a drive from a line-out.

    The Highlanders front row are pinged for illegal scrummaging. Potgieter puts the resulting penalty out on the hosts' five-metre line.

  • 66'

    Hougaard gathers a kick from Aaron Smith, just outside his 22. He kicks ahead but his effort goes directly into touch.

  • 64'

    The ball comes out to the Bulls backs and Potgieter launches a cross-field kick for Basson to chase. He goes up with Osborne but knocks on in the air! The Highlanders are penalised, however, after Chris King enters a maul illegally in the build-up.

    Good day and welcome to the Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin for our live coverage of this Super Rugby hit out between the Highlanders and the Bulls. We'll return shortly with team news.

  • 0'

    The Bulls were forced into a late change to their back-line and bench on Thursday when Akona Ndungane pulled a hamstring during the team's captains run. His place will be taken by Francois Hougaard, who was picked at scrum-half for this match. Piet van Zyl moves up from the bench to start at scrum-half. Van Zyl's place on the bench will be taken by Ulrich Beyers. Coach Frans Ludeke initially made four changes to his side that lost to the Hurricanes in Napier last weekend. Veteran lock Victor Matfield returns at the expense of Paul Willemse, who drops to the bench. The other changes are all in the back-row where Jacques du Plessis and Jono Ross take over from injured flankers Dewald Potgieter and Deon Stegmann while Grant Hattingh is preferred to Jacques Engelbrecht at number eight. Engelbrecht is also on the bench while Springbok lock Flip van der Merwe will continue as captain.

  • 0'

    Former All Black second-row Brad Thorn will start for the Highlanders. Thorn replaces Jarrad Hoeata in head coach Jamie Joseph's starting line-up. Other changes to the line-up see Kane Hames return from suspension to take the place of Ma'afu Fia, with Chris King shifting to tighthead prop. Meanwhile, Nasi Manu has been moved to bench duty as the number eight jersey goes to Elliot Dixon, with John Hardie also named in the 23. The powerful Patrick Osborne is named on the wing in place of the suspended Kurt Baker.
