Highlights: Sharks vs Bulls

Check out the highlights for the Super 15 game between the Bulls and the Sharks.

Overall, the Bulls succeeded to dominate the Sharks forwards in the set and loose phases. Notably was the fact that Marcell Coetzee was not allowed to play loose, and Kankowski received the ball under too much pressure to be as effective as to date. Willem Alberts was a factor, but because of a lack of space to run in, did not provide enough forward momentum. The Sharks lineout was insignificant, and the front row was equally neutralized, until the replacement front row appeared. Only then did the Sharks gain momentum. As a result of the Shark forwards being under pressure, McLeod was not able to have any effect on the game. Swiel and F Steyn, as a result thereof, were also forced to be ineffective. The conclusion - even the loss of Lambie and Reinach had little effect on the eventual outcome. Jake White : Nick Mallet in the post match interview stated that he is actually trying his best to play Bulls rugby, i.e forward dominance with 9 and 10 calling the shots. Only Jake, you were not able to do it. End of story, sorry for the long letter
