Cape Town - Bulls coach Frans Ludeke says it's important for his team to eradicate some "bad habits" as they prepare for this year's Super Rugby competition.

The Bulls will play two warm-up matches - against the Cheetahs (Polokwane, January 24) and Saracens (London, January 31 - before starting their campaign agaisnt the Stormers at home on February 14.

"The expectations are big," Ludeke told Netwerk24. "We made some changes in pre-season an it's important that we get rid of some bad habits."

According to Ludeke, some of those bad habits included being beaten at the breakdown and poor decision making on attack, but the coach is confident that they will be better in 2015.

"Things are different this year. There are young guys in the group coming through, a few players were bought and injured players like Pierre (Spies) and Arno (Botha) are back. We want to expose all the guys and in the process test a few combinations.

"We want to make things right quickly, but it's also important to build on what worked for us last season - like scrums and our defence," concluded Ludeke.
