    Ludeke: Bulls are blessed

    2013-07-08 10:25
    Cape Town - Bulls coach Frans Ludeke has admitted that luck played its part in their 20-19 victory over the Sharks in Pretoria over the weekend.

    Sharks fullback Riaan Viljoen missed a last-gasp penalty which would have sealed a win for the Durbanites - who let slip 16 points by missing crucial kicks at goal in the clash at Loftus Versfeld.

    "I really feel for the guy," Ludeke told the Beeld website, referring to Viljoen who had to take the last kick as both Patrick Lambie and Butch James were on the sidelines.

    The win helped the Bulls go top of the Super Rugby standings with one league match against old rivals, the Stormers, remaining.

    "We were definitely in control of things in the last 10 minutes, but there was that incident which could have changed everything. The Sharks received a penalty, started a good rolling maul, then got another penalty, but missed it.

    "But one always keeps faith. We did work very hard to get a positive result and are very blessed. This is extremely important before we face the Stormers on Saturday," continued Ludeke.

    Their North-South derby at Newlands kicks off at 19:10 on Saturday.
