Bulls unscathed after PE clash

2012-02-06 17:40

Cape Town - Bulls coach Frans Ludeke is a happy man after they returned from their clash against the Kings with no significant injuries.

The Bulls beat the Kings 16-12 in Port Elizabeth.

"Obviously the result was important as we dropped the game last year. The Kings scored close to the end of the match and we did very well to show composure and close the game down.”

"The absence of injuries was another plus," Ludeke told the Bulls' website.

“It is early in the season and no one wants injuries so we are pleased that everyone came through the game well. This was important for the coaching staff to assess the reserve strength and in that regard we are pleased as a number of players did very well.”

The Bulls conceded 16 penalties, mostly at the breakdown, but Ludeke was nevertheless pleased.

“One wants to have those mistakes indentified as early as possible and we are pleased that it happened. There was nothing new with regards to the implementation of the laws; it was just us making technical errors. It is easy to solve those.”

The Bulls are now preparing for a clash against the Cheetahs in Polokwane on Saturday.

    I'm so pleased they are showing the Bulls/Cheetah game come Saturday. I've really missed my Bulls team!

      I am however worried about the Cheetahs. They look very good at this stage of the season!

      Rene, it's the channel of champions, that's why no Stormers games have been televised so far.

      16-12 over the kings. The bulls are set to rampage. Perhaps for their next great victory they can play wits university.

      @BullDozer, that's no lie my Bull friend (and stirrer of note)! But I also agree with Dewald, going to be a toughy.... But a good warm up game to get rid of the rust & cob webs!! @Jason, I think Ikeys will be better suited for Wits since Shimlas gave them a very nice hiding!!!

      Rene, I don't like to stir. I just want peace and harmony.

      Rene - 2012-02-06 21:20

      @Bulldozer, I know, you're a honest man! All Bull supporters are peaceful people.

      Dankie Rene, ek waardeer dit opreg.

    Glad the Kings weren't totally destroyed by the bulls.

    Sorry Bulldozer, you are wrong as usual. The Stormers vs Boland game was televised.

    Reading the comments I think all the hard men are giving comments here. Hard Livers hard hats hard to understand.

    Injuries only occure when you actually do have contact - there was no contact in PE - The Kings held back not to upset certain individuals - otherwise they do not get a S16 spot next year ??????? 16-12 - Oops not so gooed. Griekwas CC team would have beaten them both hands down !!!!
