Annus horribilis for Bulls

2011-04-24 15:35

J.J. Harmse

Pretoria - It is official. The Bulls are definitely experiencing a crisis.

If they want to stand any chance whatsoever in this year's Super Rugby tournament, things simply cannot go on like this.

Their 26-21 defeat against the Western Force makes for depressing reading.

Missed opportunities, pathetic option taking by senior players and the growing reality of knowing that your best is simply not good enough anymore are now the harsh reality for this current crop of Bulls.

Even manager Wynie Strydom's usually humorous voice-mail messages are not even funny anymore.

Their fans must surely now start contemplating cancelling their family reunion's out of sheer shame for explaining what has happened to their beloved once-mighty team.

As in previous weeks, it was the same old story for the Bulls.

How many more games will be lost because of balls lost in contact, simple handling errors and just a sheer lack of desire on defence?

And, surely the kick-and-chase tactic in the hope that Bjorn Basson might catch the ball is not the only option?

Yes, Basson is in a class of his own in that regard, but why are they so stubborn to put ball-carriers like Basson and Pierre Spies into space where they're real worth could be properly utilised?

Spies has being transformed into a battering ram, where his limitations - like losing the ball in close-up contact situations - not only costs him his self-confidence, but makes him the weak link in the side.

The blame for ongoing mistakes and a lack of discipline should now be shifted towards the coaching staff.

All the senior players have tasted success in the past, and they know what needs to be done to achieve that success, but the pure lack of trying something new should be the coach's fault.

So, there is a loud and hard knock on Frans Ludeke's door. But, will he open it?

Initially, things looked good for the Bulls. Despite an early penalty from James O'Connor the Bulls looked fiery in the loose and Basson was called back from behind the Force try-line for a forward pass.

Not long afterwards Chiliboy Ralepelle scored from a good driving maul, and even though O'Connor slotted another penalty, Basson coasted through after good lineout play and a piece of individual brilliance from Fourie du Preez.

However, things turned sour for the Bulls in the second period. Not only did O'Connor bring his side back in contention after dumb mistakes from the Bulls, but the inability to keep possession slowly started to unravel the Bulls challenge.

A try by Cameron Sheperd after a woeful defensive effort from Jaco van der Westhuyzen put the Force ahead with 10 minutes to play, which proved to be the killer blow.

A Morné Steyn penalty close to the end did however give the Bulls a consolation bonus point, and they could even have won the game had it not been for a contentious decision from referee Mark Lawrence.

"We have to win everything from here on in if we want to stand any chance," Bulls captain Victor Matfield admitted afterwards.

But, it will take more than just the "Loftus factor" for them to achieve that, because believe it or not, this Bulls team doesn't know how to win anymore.

    Ludeke get on your knees & give Hanneke a call.......

      Whatever - 2011-04-26 06:15

      WDF is Hanneke?Een van Steve se ekse?

      DeonL - 2011-04-26 13:07

      Whatever, Hanneke Meyer is the previous Bulls coach, he resigned at the end of 2007 as he was promised the job at the Boks, but Zuma decided that we needed a black coach.

  • Frans - 2011-04-24 16:12

    Ons is verslae. Is dit moontlik dat Victor Matfield, Bakkies Botha en Pierre Spies so sleg kan speel? Nee wat julle verdien nie die "Bulls Jersey" nie.

  • goyougoodthing - 2011-04-24 16:16

    Not a good season for the Bulls, but it had to happen, you can't be on top forever. The scary bit is PDV choosing all these players and their antiquated gameplan for NZ... RWC going to be a disaster if he continues like this.

  • Kaapie - 2011-04-24 16:41

    JJ what indiidual brilliance re your talking about that FDP conjured.. Coming round the lineout drawing the flyhalf and passing to Basson. hardly brilliant, but rather basic play drawing the opposition and putting a player into space. I suppose whena team of internationals play so poorly this is seen as brilliant. Go watch Coopers try against the Tahs and then say brilliany play. Bulls are stereotypical..

  • Scooter - 2011-04-24 16:54

    PIERRE SPIES is the most overated, dof ,non skilled and most inconsistent springbok rugby player in the country, either you blind or dont watch rugby?

      Torro Azur - 2011-04-24 17:15

      Your comprehension of the game is limited. If I remember correctly you are a Stormer and therefore you never watch Bulls on TV - SO WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT.

      Kaapie - 2011-04-24 20:10

      But Torro are you then saying Spies a good player. Being a supporter of another franchise doenst mean one doest watch other games. Fact Spies is Crap.. Fact Spies has benn crap for two seasons now.

      Stormer4eva - 2011-04-25 07:10

      Torro Azur, Dan and all the rest , you say you can see he is a Stormer , so he does not watch Null playing , just remember , with a few , very few exceptions , on this blog ,the Stormer supporters have positive things to say about the Bulls, but the Bulls supporters are so blinded by Blue sunglasses that they refuse to see things in perspective.( Forget about Stats, because stats say the WP has won more CC titles than the Bulls , and especially you Bull fans , but actually all of us know why - Bull exclusion untill 1939),What has Pierre Spies done in the last 4 matches ( you can go 5 further back if you wish) to deserve a place in the Bulls team , let alone Springbok team , I have been watching carefully and in my limited knowledge ( as the bulls supporters tell me ) he has done nothing , nul , zulch , even in the game that they won , why is he never substituted , or heavan forbid ( in Blue language ) left out , even only if as an test , but anyway , I support the stormers , and according to the Holy Blue Book , we know nothing.

      GraemeBB - 2011-04-25 11:09

      Here we go again with the Spies issue. With all due respect to the Stormers, but there is a general dislike, more of a hate for the Bulls. As we are accused of looking at things through blue sunglasses, the same can be said about the blue and white sunglasses. Those who want to throw away stats, is because they read what they dont want to see. For goodness sakes, the amount of tackles made, or meters gained, or missed tackles, or handeling errors are relected in stats. How is this irrelavant? I dont have this weeks stats, but before the weekend Spies made 109 tackles, and missed 14. Duanne made 92, missed 7, and Kanco made 44 and missed 5. It tells me something. Spies had a poor game this weekend, and I wont argue. The Bulls want him to bang through guys, where he should be put into space as Kanco is for the Sharks, and then we will see a much better Spies. This is why Habana is so poor. The Bulls kick and chase game suited him. He was never a guy to break the line, or score from set pieces. He takes advantage from broken play. Runaway and intercept tries was his strength. Stormers dont play this game. Come bok time, depending on Snor's game plan, who are we going to pick? My pick would be Alberts for no8. He isnt a flank, he is an no8. My flanks would be Burger and Smit - tried and tested, that is if they are fit and no niggles. Brussouw would be a serious consideration if he was fit and firing.

      Scooter - 2011-04-25 17:06

      Here we go again, I mention a players form in isolation and you go rant at me cos I am stormers fan and I hate the Bulls, see thats the problem, you fans are just as dof as the players clearly...I love rugby and I watch every game I possibly can...Pierre Spies is not as good or as influential as people from all over the world, Just cos he has big biceps doesnt mean he is a good player. If you watched the Force game ,Clarky and Kearnsy were being as polite as possible about Spies watching him struggle as he is...All I am saying is the Pierre Spies is not our (Springboks) answer at no8 at all and we dont need him at this world cup like we didnt need him at the last... And lastly if you want to make this a team issue...The Bulls are gone, thanks for coming go buy some more young Cheetahs players for your next wave of success.

      Whatever - 2011-04-26 06:17

      Ou DAN bietjie suurh@l nê!?Kry vir jou PAPPA!Jul ou overrated steriods ek is n christen Spies is K@K en klaar en jy is te dof om dit te besef.

      CliffBradley - 2011-04-26 06:45

      Whatever : You make me worry that I may be rated with you as I am a staunch Stormer & WP supporter, from the 60's, try to comment without making use of crude statements , and give me a crude answer , I don't care. Also making jokes about someones faith is not a funny comment ( Between him and God)

      Hannes Perth - 2011-04-26 10:04

      @GreameBB. True there is a general dislike of the Bulls even outside South Africa. The Force supporters have been on the sidelines most of the year, but the moment those Bulls took to the field you could see that almost everyone wanted to see them loose. Why? Look at the elbow in the face from Greyling and the serial offender record of players like Bakkies and combine that with arrogant supporters and you will know why. Not sure what gives me the most pleasure, the Force winning or the Bulls losing! You do not get the same atmosphere in Perth when the Saders or anyone else play.

      GraemeBB - 2011-04-26 13:29

      Sorry Hannes, that isnt the reason. Have you seen Duanne, Bekker and Bismark?? The true reasons are far more simple than that.

  • Greg - 2011-04-24 16:56

    Heneke Meyer's legacy could only last for so long, now its over.

      Torro Azur - 2011-04-24 17:19

      Heneke Meyer is buzy developing the next generation within Bulls structure, they will be back. Just hope that one of the other SA Super teams can keep the trophy local - let's get in behind Stormers! Bulls supporter forever!

      Kaapie - 2011-04-24 20:12

      Torro are you talking about the VC side.. because they have lost 4 games and the last one against the SWD eagles hardly developing next generation. Also Tuks lost against Ikeys, a team in which Meyer had a lot o influence..

      Stormer4eva - 2011-04-25 07:11

      Torro Azur : Appologies , missed that post !

  • Torro Azur - 2011-04-24 17:11

    Now the true Bull supporters can stand up please, let the rest of the country enjoy themselves, you will cry with us when we loose the Wcup. Reason: because the infrom players currently is just not good enough to beat NZ. Ask the "inform" Sharks and the "Reds in the face" Stormers. Our hope for S15 is the Stormers; because Bulls are out and Sharks is just the sharks!

      Stormer4eva - 2011-04-25 07:13

      ikey_tiger,bull fan: That houding is not doing any good , joking about someones faith is not on !!!

  • Aribs - 2011-04-24 18:00

    Its proof that you need talent and the ability to read the game correctly and imprevise accordingly. Somethings that most players in the Bulls lack....kick and chase, kick and chase...just doesn't work anymore. Nice to see the arrogance and "know it all" attitudes of the bulls and their supporters finally catch up with them...

  • Muzi Msimango - 2011-04-24 18:25

    Agree with jj the bulls are not using pierre spies correctly. Even Carel Du plessis says the boks have to find a way to utilise pierre's strengths. He is NOT a willem alberts or deysel type of player he is an attacking number 8. But the other two loose forwards steggman and potgieter are too small spies had to carry most of the balls. Fact is the bulls and the bok coaches have no clue on how to use pierre spies he is not a battering ram.

      GraemeBB - 2011-04-25 15:06

      Thank you Muzi. Spies could be a very effective player, and the Bulls are damaging his confidence. I feel for him, because he sure aint a lazy player.

      Whatever - 2011-04-26 06:22

      Graeme hou op n p@es van jouself maak met jou obsessie oor Spies man...skewe etter!

      CliffBradley - 2011-04-26 06:47

      Whatever : You making the rest of the Cape supporters look cheap - Grow up!!!

      Hannes Perth - 2011-04-26 10:08

      He is not a fetcher, he is not a battering ram, he cannot offload in the tackle, he turns-over the ball in contact, his work in the scrum is also poor as he does not plant his feet far enough back to use his strendth and his tackling is not that great either. Then he must be there for his goal kicking because I struggle to see why else you would pick him now for any team.

      GraemeBB - 2011-04-26 14:18

      Whatever - jy is maar n swak persoon. Seker begin toe jou ma jou van klein af n p@@s genoem het, en jou ooms het jou geleer hoe om jou vuil bek groot oop te maak. Hou op met die meths, daar is mense wat jou kan help - of ten minste, kan hulle probeer. Ek het nie geweet hulle het internet daar in Distrik 6 nie. Wys jou, n mens leer elke dag iets.

  • ilollipop - 2011-04-24 18:52

    The Bulls kicked far too much possession away without coming close to getting any of it back. Add to that their inability to keep the ball when it mattered and things were never going to be easy. Fear not you Bulls fans. The sun will come up tomorrow and your dog will still lick you in the face. Your team will rise again - no need to get all down like the pessimist who writes this collumn. These things go in cycles. The Bulls need to decide what they want to do - and hopefully it's something different to what they are doing now. That the backline is shooting blanks doesn't help. It's a bit like they have painted themselves in a corner, because it will be easiest to default to highly conservative forward based dinosaur rugby. I hope not.

  • Gustredamus - 2011-04-24 18:56

    Dankie tog die helfte vd span rockoff volgende jaar want so kan geen mens rugby kyk nie. Dan kyk ek eerder na 'n nuwe jong span wat dinge probeer en nie so 'n klomp lam ougatte wat net daar rond trippel met simpel uitdrukkings op hulle gesigte nie.Magtag ek weet nie wat julle dit noem n ie maar dis nie rugby nie, Loftus sien my nie weer die jaar nie.

      Leon - 2011-04-24 19:24

      Die fout le by die "coaching staff" swaer. Nie so-seer by die spelers nie. Maar ek voel vir jul bul ondersteners.

      Ag nee man, sies --- jy support jou span deur duk en din. Mens kan nie altyd die beste wees nie. N regte supporter is die een wat daar is wanneer sy span regtig in die gat is. n Fake supporter is die een wat net by die game is as sy span aanhou wen. Jou span het jou NOU juis nodig om hulle te ondersteun. STORMERS, alle ander RSA spanne en REBELS supporter --- hel ek was skoon depressed toe die BULLS verloor het op Saterdag !!!!!!

  • aco - 2011-04-24 19:12

    I am a true BULLS supporter.....But the Bulls are useless...has been the last two years althought they managed to win the S14 last year against a top STORMERS side. I am ashamed to admit that we've waited long enough for PS to shape. He is not half a player he was than before his illness. VM and BB also not the fearsome twosome they used to be. No looseforward to be on the loose ball and no commitmnet from any forward whatsoever when the ball goes to ground or in the loose. FdP not what he was and he is taking the oppurtunities away from FH who is going to become the next Ruan Pienaar if the Bulls don't keep him in ONE possition. Wynand olivier must be shot. He shouldn't even play VC. He is the most selfish predictable player in world rugby. I knew this was going to happen the minunte Frans L got the reigns from HM. It's the same with PdV taking over from JW. It's been snowballing and the SH#t's just hit the fan now. Cover your eyes for the trinations and the WC. It's gonna hit us hard. Good luck to the STORMERS and well don to their coaching staff. I't been a long time comin'. And to the BULLS management : you've waited long enough...we've been lucky for to's time to catch a wake up...we've become the laughing stock of the S15!!!!

      Bertie - 2011-04-25 14:25

      Amazed to find a BULLS supporter with absolutely the same views as mine – but you didn’t say anything about the pathetic fullback – everybody knows exactly what he is going to do when he gets the ball, and he is no. 1 in the world for losing the ball in contact. du preez is like a schoolboy, continually shouting at the ref “meneer hulle vat my bal”. How anybody can think he deserves a place above Hougaardt is beyond me. bakkies runs onto the field with only one thing in mind – how to injure an opposing player – he hasn’t ruptured anybodies spleen yet, and he is hell bent on doing it this year. Their game plan seems to be focused on how to improve their defense – they kick the ball away for 75 minutes, and the last 5 minutes try to score 2 tries. There sure as hell aren’t any rocket scientists among the coaching staff or players. There remains one ray of hope – you don’t win the S15 or Rugby world cup 6 months before the event.

  • Ewan - 2011-04-24 20:38

    Ek dink en dis net my mening dat NZ en AUS se spanne kom weg met moord as dit by die reels kom...veral teen die Bulls... Ek stem saam dat dit defnitief nie hulle jaar is nie en dat hulle sal moet begin aanpas by hoe rugby as spel verander het. Hulle spel is veels te stadig en lynstane word op 'n baie vreemde manier uitgevoer deur dat hulle nie meer vir Victor en Bakkies gebruik nie. Op papier by verre die beste span in Suid-Afrika.

      Stormer4eva - 2011-04-25 07:20

      Ewan: Your first statement , 100 % , the last one , at this moment , not even 10% correct

      GraemeBB - 2011-04-25 11:22

      I agree with Stormwe4eva. First comment is 100% correct, last comment not true.

      Hannes Perth - 2011-04-26 10:11

      Nonsense Ewan. O'Connor yellow carded for a great tackle while elbows to the face does not even warrant a referal. The Bulls need to learn the rules of the game, they got away with a lot of penalties when the Force treatened to score a try - a better ref would have yellow carded at least one Bulls player for these repeated transgressions.

  • molefeP - 2011-04-24 20:55

    Never mind the Horrible Year, drop one of the n's and you describe the Bulls much better. As much as I love my Bulls, I cannot stand to watch them play this badly!

  • BardofAvon - 2011-04-24 21:08

    It's over. Withdraw the Boks and rest them for the WC. Blood the 2012 Bulls team in the remainder of the season. A 2012 Super 15 win will give us 4 trophies in 6 years.

      GraemeBB - 2011-04-25 11:25

      @Brad - play them. They need to find form. We can rebuild on CC level. In 2 years time we should start shaping again. Also, dont forget the cheque book. Stormers and Sharks have used it effectively. They learnt that from the Bulls - but I have no problem with that, this is the new era of rugby.

      Whatever - 2011-04-26 06:28

      Huh? “Rest the Boks!?” There are no "Boks" in the Bulls team worthwhile going to the WC. Rest....why? Can’t they handle their workload?A few "dose" yes but Boks....noooooooo!!!!!!!

  • Raymond - 2011-04-24 21:13

    On Saturday,the Bulls beat themselves.For the last few seasons,this was a great team that had a good run of success and brought pride to our country.Like most things in life,we all go through a bad patch at one time or another.Although the state of affairs leaves room for concern,they are still,I believe,a great side with many talented players that just have to believe in themselves and gain self confidence.I really hope that in their next home game they will turn the corner and gain that self confidence and get back into the winning mode as many of our RWC players are in this team.It does not help when people blame and criticize the players.Any fool can criticize but,constructive criticism is always welcome. From a STORMER.

    To the bulls: When next you return to Loftus, look around you. You are flanked by 2 of the top schools in the country: Meisies and Seuns Hoër. These children are EXTREMELY proud to wear their school uniforms. I have seen the girls burst into tears the first time they put on their blue cap - it means so much to them. It's time you for you to feel the same regarding that jersey you put on: it has to mean everything. Once that pride and that love for your team is back, so will your rugby performance return. Manne, ons kan hulle nie nou drop nie! Staan sterk, staan saam.

  • John Smith - 2011-04-24 22:54

    All I can say at present is that if Matfield´s captaincy is to blame for the continual kick chase nightmare and if the is pulling strings in getting players like Zane Kirchner on field for the boks and Wynand Olivier then the Boks have a HUGE problem. He seems clueless and he certainly cant go to the WC as captain in my books. He is playing poorly, jogs around the field, constantly gets in arguments with the ref and comes up with the same old two bit excuse at the end of the game - we´ll have to start over again on Monday, we have to win next week, we have to have a look at the videos blah blah blah. I for one am very concerned considering at least 10 Bulls will make up the Springbok team going to the WC. I can not see how De Villiers will make tough decisions like leaving, Spies, Bakkies, Matfield, Steyn at home and possibly Kirchner and Wynand Olivier. Not a single one of them deserve to be going to the WC if they keep playing like they are. Throw Ricky Januarie, Bryan Habana, John Smit (one decent game doesnt make up for the past year) and Elton Jantjes into the mix and were heading for disaster.

      croix - 2011-04-24 23:49

      How anyone with more than 1 braincell can consider taking January, Spies, Smit and Habana (even Steyn) to the RWC, is way beyond me. In fact, under PdV, I simply cannot see the slightest of chances of success at the world cup. He is by now too stereotype and way past his shelf life.

  • Monica - 2011-04-24 23:11

    I think they should take the best 15 rugby players in South Africa and rest them for at least 8 weeks for the World Cup. The rest can then follow. Soooooo Sorry your team is not at their best performance Victor; somehow you always pull them through!!! Maybe not this time; but try and take my advice. Womans logic. Always listen to your mother!

  • Frederik - 2011-04-24 23:58

    The secret to the Reds are with Cooper and Genia is their unpredictability. With the Bulls its the same tactics over and over year in and year out.

Altyd die snaakste as Naas die blou trui aan het, haat almal hom maar ou maat as hy daai groene aan het, dan is almal "ou Naasie ou Naasie se goue skopskoen" zDit is egter met n swaar hart dat ek Saterdae rugby kk want die blou ysters is maar n skamele skaduweetjie van wat hulle die afgelope twee jaar was. Die moeite om n Bulls supporter te wees, al het hulle al die Super rugby titel 3 keer gewen en o ja, die res van die gespuis....mmmmNUL.! Pierre Spies. My maat dink jy nie dis tyd om maar te gaan volleyball of netbal te gaan speel nie. Wat Rugby kan jy nie. Wees groot genoeg en loop weg. Met jou groot lyf en groot vaart beteken jy NIKS vir daai Blou span nie. Het jy die hart gehad wat Dewald Potgieter of Keegan Daniel (wat die helfte jou size en krag en spoed het), sou dit n ander storie gewees het. GAAN SPEEL NETBAL. ASSEBLIEF. Bakkies, loop weg en gaan solank Frankryk toe. Jou kop is klaar daar. Mors asseblief die naweek met die chiefs soos julle gemaak het in die final van 2009. Julle skuld ons manne

    Want to win. get rid of Olivier who cannot pass a ball. He must have been pissed off on Saturday when he twice had to pass the ball as he found hinself in the scrum half position. Just a thought. Morne Steyn is a kicking machine, but should a flyhalf not offer the game a lot more .

    If you are a Bull supporter you can not afford to insult supporters of other teams, you just insult yourself more. Spare yourself from any other wrong doing and concentrate, focus on the game, stop do not do anything because whatever you do it is going to be wrong sorry do not even concentrate or focus or should one say do not do nothing rather not get involve in rugby at all rather go fishing and anything where a ball is involve for the next 12 months must be forbidden to all Bull supporters. Do not watch movies or TV they might mention something about rugby or a ball and psychologically it will be very harmful to the Bulls and their fans. Just shut up and get lost all bull fans don't shut up.

    The current crop of players are just not up to the modern game. They are too slow, tire too quickly, and then lose concentration. The Bulls need new players and coaching staff - this much is now blaringly obvious!

    Pierre Spies walks into a sperm donor bank. “I’d like to donate some sperm” he says to the receptionist. “Certainly Sir” replies the receptionist, “have you donated before?”. “Yes” replies Pierre "you should have my details on your computer”. “Oh yes, I’ve found your details” says the receptionist “but I see you’re going to need help. “Why do I need help?” asks Pierre. The receptionist replies “Well, it says on your record that you’re a useless wanker

    Dit het nou niks tedoen met die berig nie maar ek dink die nuwe formaat van super 15 maak dat ons almal sonder dat ons weet Aus en NZ spanne ondersteun net omdat ons wil he dat ons eie span bo aan die konferensie eindig. Die naweek het ek vir myself gese 'moenie worry nie Spies gaan nou die bal knock"' toe hul op die Force se doelyn was. En dis nie reg nie want op die einde van die dag wil almal he die bokke moet goed doen makie saak vir wie hul speel nie. Ek dink in die Currie-Cup kan ons Lekker provinsialisties wees maar die S15 voel vir my moet soos 'n Tri=nations wees dat ons al die SA spanne moet ondersteun. Stormers groete uit 'n koue wes-kaap

      Taureaux bleus - 2011-04-25 15:06

      Wel Jaco ek ondersteun die BB en belowe myself elke naweek ek gaan my verlekker as spanne soos die Sharks en die Stormers die onderspit delf teen die oorsese spanne. Dit is egter bitter min die geval. Ek gee egter toe ek het darem lekker gekry toe die Reds die grootbek Stormers se gatte op Nuweland geskop het. Die rede... maak nie saak hoe goed die sharks of die stormers is nie, nie een van hulle het die vermoeë om die Reds of die Blues of die Crusaders op 'n neutrale veld te klop nie en die S15 eind stryd gaan definitief nie in Suid Afrika gespeel word nie... Bulle groete uit 'n soel Gauteng.

    It's irrelevant, we have won 3 of the last 4 Super cups! You can't win everything year in and year out. This is still the best provincial rugby team ever seen in world rugby. Thank you all

      Kobus - 2011-04-25 18:21

      IRRELEVANT?? You BB's now falling back on the "old time", as if you have something in the bank to help you through the dark ages?

      Jaco - 2011-04-25 19:06

      Ja Effel jy is 'n halwe P 'n heel een kan mens nog gebruik :) This is still the best provincial rugby team ever seen in world rugby. Wat laat jou so dink??

    What happened to throwing the book at the Australian @shole O'Connor for the spear-tackle on Zane??? If this was a SA player he would be in the "sin bin" for a couple of games!
