Bulls to return to Soweto

2012-11-27 20:02

Johannesburg - The Bulls will be heading back to the scene of their famous 2010 Super Rugby victory in Soweto when they face the Lions in a pre-season friendly on February 2 next year.

With the Bulls celebrating their 75th anniversary of the founding of the Blue Bulls Rugby Union in 1938, the game will kick off their year of celebration and return to what can arguably be seen as one of their greatest rugby victories of all time, the supersport.com website reported.

The Bulls are also likely to target a number of Lions supporters this season, with this being the first chance for them to do so.

The Lions were excluded from the 2013 Super Rugby championship and will play a series of friendlies next year as they prepare for a promotion-relegation game against the lowest-performing SA side in the competition.

With no Super Rugby in Johannesburg, it seems the Bulls will be hoping to lure some rugby fans to Pretoria to get them to watch Super Rugby action.

The Bulls were forced to move their Super Rugby semi-final against the Crusaders from Loftus Versfeld to Orlando after a clash with the 2010 FIFA World Cup, as Loftus was a venue for the tournament.

They won in sensational style and beat the Stormers in an all-South African final which broke several broadcast records and set an amazing tone for nation-building in South Africa.

      Hard luck Bulls

      steven.rhode.311 - 2012-11-27 21:31

      Blou, sorry to say but Rugby365 and Supersport reported it before Sport24 did so

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-11-27 22:53

      You must be disappointed. Hard luck. Maybe you'll get rid of him next year.

      BlouMasjien1 - 2012-11-28 07:03

      The difference between province24 and Rugby368/Supersport, is that Rugby368 and Supersport had the correct facts.Province24 never let facts stand in the way of a good story.

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-11-28 07:21

      Then why do you still read and comment on Province24? You have the power, switch websites. Take some control in your life.

      BlouMasjien1 - 2012-11-28 07:45

      I am the arbitrator of province24,trying to keep them on the small and narrow.My mission is to save the country from province24

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-11-28 07:50

      There is more to "the country" than Tshwane.

      she.is.here.777 - 2012-11-28 08:08

      Or flou bulls met klein letters.

      BlouMasjien1 - 2012-11-28 08:45

      Actually it's only the okes from the 'platberg' who is ignorant and gullible enough,to believe everything they read on province 24

      gert.swart.393 - 2012-11-28 10:04

      Die tandlose sodomiete van die kaap sal nooit 'n super rugby trofee kan wen nie.

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-11-28 07:25

      Peanut-dop, ek glo die Chiefs is Super Rugby Champs. Sorry om jou mee te deel, maar die wereld aan hierdie kant van die mullet-gordyn het nie in Mei 2010 gaan stilstaan nie.

  • chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-11-27 22:52

    They probably don't like the total lack of atmosphere at Moftus. And they don't need to walk past that dusty, empty trophy cabinet again.

      tertius.devereaux.1 - 2012-11-28 06:29

      Empty trophy cabinet??????? Jy moet laaste praat of glad ni praat nie...Jy het n opsessie met di BULLS

    Ek hoor talle benoude stormer-kommentare op die blad!

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-11-27 23:26

      sigaret stompies, nou waaroor moet die Stormers benoud voel wanneer die Pink Pansies in Soweto teen die sukkelende Leeus speel?

      tertius.devereaux.1 - 2012-11-28 06:31

      1 beker in 12jaar en bekke is groot...my f*k

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-11-28 06:56

      Geen beker in meer as drie jaar en die bekke is nog groter. Never mind geen beker, niks verder as 'n semi final nie en die bekke is so groot. Pers tertjie, ek sal liewer stil bly as my span so k#k speel en nerens kom soos joune.

      tertius.devereaux.1 - 2012-11-28 07:22

      Chrisie-Krismis di BULLE het al als bereik wat hule wou (bekers)...Daai geld gooiers in di Kaap se toekoms is ONS verlede

    Excellent, Soweto and Orlando love the Bulls. Nothing beats Soweto hospitality. Hope they allow the vuvuzelas.
