    Gonna be a really hard game for the bulls. I predict perchance the bulls may, if they are very very very lucky just win this one. That said if they play Zane they may just throw out this great opportunity to take a game.

    This is a very talented Bulls side alot of exciting youngsters on show.I am not surprised Lionel Cronje is running at 12 the Bulls can not afford to start rising star Francois Venter at 12 i think ludeke can not afford to lose venter to another injury.Olivier will only return after the sharks match Venter looks like he will partner sadie against the cheetahs in bombela.The loose forwards are the future we all know about cj stander and arno botha..Jean Cook will surprise a few people. This will be a tough match for the bulls remember we lost last year in PE. Hope Frans Ludeke is prepared for a hard match.

    Kings to win yet again

      Jou bek is nogal groot vir n ou wie se spannetjie nog nooit n Super rugby cup gewen het nie.

      Matt Prinsloo - 2012-01-31 21:36

      @bulldozer: eerder n kroonlose king as n bal-lose bul. Ons tyd is aan die kom. Face dit.

      Bulldozer - 2012-01-31 21:50

      Matt, die mannetjie hierbo is n Stormers of Sharks supporter, wat net wil sien hoe die Bulle verloor. Hy is heelwaarskynlik een van die grootbekke wat die Kings vervloek. Ek aan die ander kant, verwelkom die Kings in Super rugby, ten koste van die Stormers natuurlik.

      @Bulldozer. Ja, jy verwelkom die Kings, want dit gee jou nog 'n geleendheid om nog 'n span sleg te se, want vir julle is "alles blou"!

      Bulldozer - 2012-02-01 07:38

      Nee Clive, ek sĂȘ net die Stormers/WP sleg. As jy weer kom, kom by.
