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

10:57 - 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...
10:43 - The full list of South African Super Rugby centurions (players still in action in bold):

10:43 - Victor Matfield takes over the captaincy. He is playing his 123rd Super Rugby game for the Bulls - tied with the team's record-holder Morné Steyn.
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...

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!

9:32 - 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!

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!
