Rossouw leading Bulls charge

2011-05-31 09:23

Brenden Nel - SuperSport

Johannesburg - The Vodacom Bulls were missing confidence at the beginning of the season as things just didn’t want to click. But now that they have found their confidence, it makes them a dangerous animal with an eye on the target of defending their Vodacom Super Rugby title in the next six weeks.

While it can take one loss to kill all those plans, the focus in the Bulls’ eyes is apparent of late, and so much that their senior players have rediscovered form at a crucial time, especially after weeks of critics writing them off ahead of this year’s Rugby World Cup.

One of the mainstays, the stars in recent weeks has been the bullocking form of Danie Rossouw. The big Springbok, bearded and rampant on the run is certainly enjoying his time on the field, so much so that it was a surprise not to see him get the man of the match award against the Cheetahs after an inspired performance off the bench.

Asked what superfood had inspired him to his refound form, Rossouw – not a man normally of many words, just smiled and said: “Biltong”.

But jokes aside, while he may be the unluckiest player in rugby, always moved around from flank to lock because of his versatility and struggling both at Super Rugby and Springbok level to find a permanent run in the starting line-up, Rossouw is certainly the type of player you would go to war with.

Humble, but honest, Rossouw credits the confidence in the team ranks for his growing form, and wants to make it a memorable year as he prepares to depart Pretoria for Japan after the World Cup.

“Its nothing really, I have got a lot more game time of late, and this is my last year at the Bulls. You never want to finish off on a low note, so I have been giving my all so that people can remember you,” Rossouw said. And with four straight wins giving the team momentum, the final mentality is working for the Bulls, with Rossouw crediting the confidence for their form.

“The next game is like a final for us, it is vital. The coach keeps it in our heads the whole time and we keep focused. While the pressure never comes off us, you can see how the confidence has grown in this squad, and rugby is a confidence game. It definitely helps to have a couple of good wins under the belt,” he added.

Asked if he had unlocked the secret for the poor start to the competition, Rossouw was honest in his assessment.

“No hell, I leave that for the technical guys,” he laughs, “But it has much to do with confidence and the little things click into place when you have it. You can see we are a confident side now and it tells on the field in our execution.”

While Rossouw’s versatility has sometimes counted against him, he believes that with increased competition for places in this year’s squad it could work in his favour.

“The versatility has actually counted in my favour. For me, I have been lucky that I can play in a few positions, and it has actually helped me in my career. To me though, it’s all about the team, and if the coach feels I am needed on the bench, then it is okay, I want to make my contribution in any way possible,” Rossouw explained.

“I hope that I am part of the World Cup squad, and that I get a chance to play at the World Cup. There are so many good looseforwards and locks at the moment. For me if I can get into that squad and play a few games it would be perfect for me.

“There is a lot more competition at the moment for places in the squad than there was in 2007. Guys like Willem Alberts, who is an exceptional player, are knocking at the door, while at lock a guy like Andries Bekker is playing great rugby. It makes it very tough and means I have to be at my best to make the squad.”

On a parting note, Rossouw just laughs when asked to compare his offload – one of the best in Super Rugby – to offload king Sonny Bill Williams. But it is clear it is a skill the big forward has worked on in his career and which has been one of his trademarks after bursting through tackles.

“Sonny Bill is still the master of the offload and he gets a lot of ball on the front foot with which he can show off,” Rossouw jokes, “But you know here at the Bulls we’re not a team that likes to show off, and we’re not a team that likes to offload, rather we just run straight.”

A veteran of two World Cups already, Rossouw’s form and versatility are an asset for his Bulls side. Springbok supporters will be hoping his continued run of form extends to a third World Cup, as it has for the Bulls.

      @graemebalbrein, Now lets see, are you afrikaans? is you mother a lady? did you mother ever give you a klip or 2 around the ear when you acted dof at some stage of your wanker life? You must be the biggest wanker on this site who acts all high and mighty. You still live on skuld bult in the East? Are you a migrant worker from transkei looking for some garden work? Ask Lloyd he will help.

      GraemeBB - 2011-05-31 15:00

      @watalife - hahaha. Your responses always amuse me! They are so stupid! An afrikaans migrant garden worker from the Transkei living in the East with "skuld"? Your mother should have moered you harder!

      Niekie - 2011-05-31 15:20

      Ding Ding Ding! Round 1 to Watalife!

  • Blougroen - 2011-05-31 09:54

    Must say - something clicked for Danie this year - somewhere he realised that he doesnt necessarily have to go to ground if four players try to tackle him - and when you sit next to the park - you can hear him hitting the opposition this year - no one close to him at the moment - and Bulls should start and finish with him at seven.

  • SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-31 09:55

    As I said on a previous thread: Danie Rossouw is my fave Bulls player of all time. In a league of his own. It just saddens me (seriously) that he hasn't always received the acclaim he has deserved over the years. It has always been about Vic, Bakkies, du Preez and Spies. I would trade all of those players for ONE Danie.

      Hannes - 2011-05-31 10:08

      You sound seriously in love. lol I'm certain it's unintended, but it does. You know the gang's gonna jump on this like flies on a crapper

      watalife - 2011-05-31 10:13

      @SAFFA I hate to say this but he is by far the best bulls the flo nulle have had for years.bulls...suck

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-31 10:16

      @Hannes - lol - The gang of half-wits plus 1 bottle blonde, should appreciate that I actually rate one of the Bulls players.... :) I fail to see why he doesn't enjoy the same support from the 'gang' as what Tinkerbell does. Boggles the mind.

      watalife - 2011-05-31 10:17

      @SAFFA .... I hate to say this but he is by far the best the flo nulle have had for years.bulls...suck

      Grunk - 2011-05-31 10:24

      Saffa, All time is a bit thick but I agree with you if you stick to the last 10 years. There have been at least another 10/15 Rousseaus in the the previous 30 years that are in the "hero" class.

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-31 10:29

      @Grunk - Danie is just MY all round fave from up north of all time. There have been many great players, some far better than Danie (technically) but they don't tick all the other blocks.

      Hannes - 2011-05-31 10:31

      More like peroxided crack hair blonde, where the hell did she crawl out from all of a sudden?

      bullincapeto - 2011-05-31 10:50

      Hi are you starting to get nervous, Bulls going to clap you in your own backyard.Mark my words, Im open for bets, please reign in your little helper watalife, he is the most tiresome little twerp on this forum.I hear Kurt is now injured, maybe Paul Roos u19 flyhalf can help, oh forgot you got you have Earl, HAHAHAHJAHAHAHA

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-31 11:08

      @Bullincapto - I am nervous of one thing RE: the 11th of June, and that would be the airborne viruses the visiting Bulls fans bring to Newlands from up north.......I have arranged for masks to be distributed which does make me feel a little better. Jokes aside - will be a great game. Will you be going?

      bullincapeto - 2011-05-31 11:30

      Does a frog have a waterproof butt.Looking forward to it big time

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-31 11:35

      @bullincapto - will you be painted blue? Will your attire include nose ring, horns and a plastic mug filled with brannas, along with the compulsory fanny pack?

      watalife - 2011-05-31 12:33

      @bullincapeto you should not joke about the u19 flyhalf he is just as good as steyntjie who plays kicker for the flo nulle. Dont bet oke you dont have the cash and just remember you cant sell you false teeth the still belong to the dental technician.

      bullincapeto - 2011-05-31 13:14

      Nope, I will be donned in regular civvies with a Bluebull shirt, I will not adorn myself with any paraphenalia besides a quiet confidence.Are you going to throw naartjies and wear an All Black jumper which has a special compartment to store your two litre honneyblossom papsak?

      bullincapeto - 2011-05-31 13:19

      Are you seriously going to spend an entire game next to watalife??? By the way which cape school do you support? I often watch schools rugby (live 5mins from Newlands)

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-31 13:27

      @Bullincapto - I will be dressed like the princess I am. My thigh pack will hold all the essentials for a traditional North/South showdown: - knife/Anti-venom/rope/C4/MP3player loaded with Hofmeyer/Amore Vittone songs which will be used to hypnotise any potential attackers. See you there :)

      Paul - 2011-05-31 13:28

      SAFFA. Bring daai maskers en dra hulle sodat julle jul gesigde kan weg steek na die venedering. Oh JA. Hallo Saffa. Hoe gaan die dinge in die Suide hm.

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-31 14:04

      @Bullincapto - I answered you RE: the schools on the other thread. :) Watalife is a great dude! Sadly I won't be seated next to him and his wife. I have season tickets, but I was given a few extra tickets way back and I gave them to him. Be on the lookout for a huge group of us pre-game :) @Paul - Hello :) Dit is koud en mislik hier. Baie water geval die laaste paar dae jong. Ek is oortuig daar is sneeu in Ceres, want ons voel dit hier. Niks wat goeie "osbloed" nie kan regmaak nie.

      Paul - 2011-05-31 14:33

      SAFFA, nou praat jy my taal jong. Hoeka Sondag gesit en prawn eet met n botteltjie osbloed om "lekker" te maak. En lekker was dit. Het jy dalk vir Lloyd vermoor, hy is erg skaars.

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-31 14:52

      @Paul - I think Lloyd has been 'raptured'.......the sad thing is, that means all of us have been left behind.....(which doesn't say much about us)

      Kaapie - 2011-05-31 10:48

      He may be playing well but the coaching staff dont select him WTF.. he is clearly better than Spies, Potgieter and Botha presently.

      Raka13 - 2011-05-31 12:55

      Danie is the most consistent bulls rugby player(maybe even of all rugby players) I also rate this guy. He is miles better than Spies...

  • jontheb - 2011-05-31 09:58

    Janee - one loss and it's all over for the Bulls. With the likes of Rossouw, Du Preez, Bakkies and Matfield hanging up their boots or moving abroad at the end of the year, it looks like it may be over for quite a while as they look to rebuild...

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-31 10:17

      @jontheb - I think these loyal blue servants deserve a huge send off from the Newlands faithful on the 11th. I'm thinking flour bombs?

  • vallemj@24.com - 2011-05-31 10:16

    Mark my words The Bulls will NOT make a wild card position they dont have the talent or the Strength , the Stomers will end there hopes next week, Bulls Powder Puff Defence don't stand a chance and there No skill backs WILL not break the unbreakable defence of the Stomers. (Just for you LEGEND) hahahaha. Bulls will have a long wait before they see silverware again.

      Jacques Claasens - 2011-05-31 10:31

      @ vallemj@24.com I've heard that story so many times, the Bulls suck, the Bulls this the Bulls that. If we where that horrible would we have been able to turn a season around. If anything the Stormers should be slightly worried having to play the Bulls the week after they come back from tour and then the Cheetahs away the week after. Bad results their and they start dropping down the log. So be overconfident but don't cry it was the ref when it doesn't go your way, I'm not picking a winner, as I believe it's going to be a tight one and should be very entertaining. I still believe even though we have 3 possible sides going thru, not one of the SA sides have truly dominated this season.

      pcpcoetzee89 - 2011-05-31 10:56

      @VALLEMJ@24.COM - my girl ... are you one of the bergbaber [briesie] supporters who have yet to see a SUPER RUGBY CHAMPION silverware ... even after 17 years! Shame ... must say ... you girls from the viskop town are really "vasbyters!" Not to worry ... next year the mighty BULLS will not play SUPER rugby ... to give you also runs [for the past 17 years!] a better chance - don't you think this is a sporty gesture ... my girl?

      JJRR - 2011-05-31 11:40

      Shame! feel sorry for you. No cups for yeeeeeeaaaars and the fact that the Bulls have 3 must kill you inside. Your wannabee team will again have NOTHING to show this year and the next to come. This "hate the Bulls" attitude is the cause of your own team demise!

      @chrismtb007, hou op om jou naam verder gat te maak. 'n Paar feite, jou dom poephol: * Nadat die Stormers die S14 eindstryd verloor het, het Schalk hulde gebring aan die Bulls, 'n beter span. * Ons Stormer ondersteuners het deur die bank erken dat ons span deur 'n beter span geklop is. * Na die Bulls se verloor teen die Stormers (nogal op die heilige Loftus) het Victor hulde gebring aan 'n goeie Stormerspan * 'n Komp van die Bulls ondersteuners (mense wie se mentaliteit net so laag soos joune is) het histeries geraak oor swak skeidsregterskap. Jy is pataties!

      GraemeBB - 2011-05-31 14:15

      @Ou Koos - not true. It is fact that Burger and AC were upset with Joubert, and made statements after the game about the way the game was handled. As for supporters, it has been a constant defense some of the Stormers have used - the ref, the ref. If you want to speak for yourself, that is fine. As I speak for myself when I say that the Bulls were beaten by the Stormers, and not the by ref at Loftus.

      chrismtb007 - 2011-05-31 15:13

      Oukoos, vir iemand wat maak asof hy van alles weet is jy nogal n regte poepol, ek praat nie van die spelers nie, maar van julle komentaar gewers hier op news 24, elke week wanneer die bulle wen huil julle met ander redes oor hoekom die bulle gewen het, en dis waar wat Graham se, Schalkie het getjank!!!

Wet and windy NZ is no place for pussies, and who knows, the heavy fields and resulting slower pace of the game may even suite some of the old Bulls legs in the Bok team. With reference to the 11th, it will be the Stormers by a nose, the monkey is off the back, for good!

    @watalife. n Vaaljapie is n Stormer supporter wat verlief is op sy eie susie.

      watalife - 2011-05-31 13:46

      @paul thats very funny, Barry Hilton once described a vaaljapie as somebody who comes from the north who lives on the banks of the Roodeplaat Dam and attends/attended the Dom Skool and you my friend were the leader of the pack ne?

      Paul - 2011-05-31 14:08

      watalife, I supose he also described the Stormers as a winning team hey.

      ZAPMAN - 2011-05-31 14:18

      Moenie n Vaaljapie so beledig deur hom met n DHL Choker te vergelyk nie,

      Paul - 2011-05-31 14:29

      Sorry ZAPMAN. Sal nie weer nie.

      watalife - 2011-05-31 14:38

      @ZAPMAN(Alwyndooswyn) welcome back you are very quite for a change, were you busy with Sofie in the outside room again?

      ZAPMAN - 2011-05-31 15:00

      No Getalife unlike you i do have to work and can only comment when i do have time,being a car gaurd can be hectic at month end

      ZAPMAN - 2011-05-31 15:01

      Getalife,the Sofie remark only again proves that you are a low class individual,and a Stormer Supporter type

      The_Fox - 2011-05-31 15:41

      @watalife Hey pal, take it easy! You are starting to be an embarrassment on here.

  • The_Fox - 2011-05-31 15:36

    Well well well, I guess Ludeke has listened! Even as a huge Stormers fan I have to say the Bulls will be extremely tough to beat. Very solid, BMT, flyers on the wings. I'm afraid we looking at a Bulls-Reds final

      The_Fox - 2011-05-31 17:17

      Hey!! Stop stealing my nic! Who's this Brannas & co? @watalife, some spammer stole my nic.

    Hey!! Stop stealing my nic! Who's this Brannas & co?

  • JoeStormer - 2011-05-31 18:03

    Who wants to bet me: This Bulls team will take the trophy ONCE AGAIN!

      Jaco - 2011-05-31 19:28

      How much?

      JoeStormer - 2011-05-31 20:53

      $10,000?

      Hannes - 2011-06-01 02:25

      Jaco, flip jy's darem onnosel, wat gfaan met jou aan man? Het jy op jou kop geval?

  • JoeStormer - 2011-05-31 18:36

    Poor Waratahs, Stormers, Sharks, quarters opponent, semi's opponent, finals opponent!

  • watalife - 2011-05-31 20:35

    Well, with Rossouw starting, the option of vd Heever at wing/fullback, the pack totally dominating again even us Stormers have to admit this is a different Bulls team from 2 months ago. I can't see anyone really stopping the Bulls from taking their 4th cup in 5 years.

  • crocowild - 2011-05-31 22:33

    Now that the Bulls is hitting their straps all the other teams will be looking over their shoulders.The Waratahs stands no chance at all against this Bulls team and i expect a runaway victory.Bulls will put them away and win by 30 to 40 points.The Sharks can post the points to Loftus and save themselves another humiliation.If they do decide to go i expect them to bleed at least 50 points.Stormers confidence can count against them,seeing that they think they are already in the playoffs.Injuries might also play a role.

      JoeStormer - 2011-05-31 22:45

      @CROCOWILD You couldn't have said it any better

      watalife - 2011-06-01 00:32

      @crocowild I can't disagree with that

  • Hannes - 2011-06-01 00:57
