Cape Town - Blue Bulls coach Frans Ludeke says they will keep backing their processes in order to get their game plan right.

The Bulls suffered another disappointing loss at the weekend when the Sharks beat them 26-15 at Loftus Versfeld.

Ludeke said they have no excuses for the loss and have to learn to handle the pressure situations better.

"It was especially our decision making which cost us. There were times when we needed to play tactically, but then carried the ball and lost it at the breakdowns instead," Ludeke told Beeld.

"We were also too easily disrupted in the lineouts. There are a number of new players coming through and I'm not making excuses, but it is a process.

"The Sharks were clever and our problems in the lineouts put us on the back foot. We weren't accurate enough."

Ludeke insisted they will keep focusing "on the process that will get us there".

"We've had a few good results and have played good rugby. That's what we'll stick to."

The Bulls' next game is against the Free State Cheetahs in Bloemfontein this Friday. After that they face the Pumas in Nelspruit before concluding the round-robin phase with a home game against Griquas.
