    Ludeke: We lost to ourselves

    Cape Town - Bulls coach Frans Ludeke has rued the amount of errors his side made in their 31-16 loss to the Sharks in Durban over the weekend.

    As it happened: Sharks v Bulls

    The Bulls were beaten at the breakdown, struggled in the lineouts and failed in their execution on numerous occasions. Their starting halfbacks - Francois Hougaard and Louis Fouché - also failed to impress and the promising centre combination of JJ Engelbrecht and Jan Serfontein had limited chances to showcase their capabilities.

    "I have to admit, this is probably the easiest the Sharks have ever beaten us," Ludeke told the Beeld website.

    "We conceded easy turnover possession too often and gave them the momentum on a silver platter. We also made a lot of mistakes and actually lost against ourselves.

    "We had between 10 and 14 chances to get points but didn't take it. We fought back well after half-time and took a lot out of the game. Our next game against the Cheetahs is crucial. They also lost (to the Lions) so it will be two desperate teams against each other," continued Ludeke.

    Their next clash in Bloemfontein is on Friday (19:10 kick-off).
