    2017-02-09 12:47

    Cape Town - The Bulls beat the Chiefs 28-7 in a pre-season game in Brisbane on Tuesday, dedicating the win to the memory of Joost van der Westhuizen.

    Van der Westhuizen, the legendary former Springbok and Bulls scrumhalf, died at the age of 45 earlier this week after losing his battle to motor neuron disease.

    The men from Pretoria, who led 14-7 at the break, scored four tries to clinch an impressive win over the Kiwis.

    The Bulls will feature in the Brisbane Global Tens this weekend, before opening their Super Rugby campaign against the Stormers in Cape Town on February 25.

    They claimed a 38-17 win over the Lions in their first warm-up game in Harare at the end of January
