    Spies: Tough road ahead for Bulls

    2015-04-13 10:02

    Cape Town - The Bulls may be on top of the South African Super Rugby conference, but they know there’s a tough road ahead until the end of regular season play.

    The Bulls thrashed the Reds 43-22 at Loftus Versfeld at the weekend, but out of their eight remaining league matches, only two will be at home.

    They tackle the Sharks and Stormers away over the next two weeks, before facing the Lions at home.

    After that, four games in Australasia await against the Blues, (May 15), Chiefs (May 22), Brumbies (May 29) and Rebels (June 6).

    Their last league game is at home against the Cheetahs on June 13.

    “I think we can feel satisfied, but the path ahead is a steep one. We know we’ll have to win away from home,” captain Pierre Spies told Netwerk24.

    Coach Frans Ludeke said he was chuffed with the six-try romp against the Reds.

    “We played against a desperate team and it was a nice feeling creating and utilising so many chances out of broken play.”

    Ludeke had high praise for fullback Jesse Kriel, who was named man-of-the-match.

    “Jesse is maturing with every match. He showed how deadly he can be if there is space. It’s nice having someone that can make things happen.”
