Double blow for Bulls

2012-03-27 20:08

Johannesburg - Flank Deon Stegmann and hooker Willie Wepener have been ruled out of the Bulls' Super Rugby clash against the Stormers at Newlands on Saturday.

Team doctor Org Strauss on Tuesday confirmed that Stegmann's troublesome hamstring did not recover sufficiently to play in the Super Rugby clash.

Wepener picked up an infection of some facial muscle and was ruled unfit to play.

He will probably be replaced as back-up hooker by Bongi Mbonambi, former SA U-20 representative.

Coach Frans Ludeke will announce his team to play the Stormers on Wednesday.

    We've got it covered.

      Saffa - 2012-03-27 20:47

      @Isak No rats welcome here, go entertain yourself somewhere else. Idiot

      @Blou Daan - it sounds like you are the Bulls player 23. Are you travelling with them this weekend seeing that you know them so well? You sound like a teenager going on about knowing someone famous that once gave her a autograph. Do you hang out with them at braai's etc. Pathetic statement.

      Bulldozer - 2012-03-28 06:23

      Pathetic Siphiwe.

  • Saffa - 2012-03-27 20:39

    The team is even stronger without them 32-13 Bulls Another walk in the park

    Last time I had a double blow was long time ago, I was just out of school, first year working, driving a Ford Escourt 1600 Sport going to Durbs for a long weekend, anyway as I got to Pinetown there where these 2 gorgeous girls hitch-hiking............You can't even imagine what the rest of the story was like!! I know this has nothing to do with the topic, but I just wanted to share it with you guys, it's a much better story than what you get from the usual suspects on this forum! SOS week after week!

      Saffa - 2012-03-27 21:58

      @Ken Hell, you must be extremely bored, village idiot of note

      Ken - 2012-03-27 22:05

      @Saffa You see, there you go again, SOS you, Isak, Bulldozer, Blue and the rest of the gang are all coupled on the tote......You just can't have a normal conversation!

      Saffa - 2012-03-27 22:08

      It will be totally pointless to try and have one with you

      Ken - 2012-03-27 22:09

      @Saffa And as for the village idiot......Who's ringing the bell for you tonight?

      Saffa - 2012-03-27 22:23

      So much for intelligent conversation.

      Jason - 2012-03-28 08:20

      @Fake Saffa you have never had one intelligent conversation on any of these rugby threads.

      Saffa - 2012-03-28 20:35

      @Jasoneye How do you even speak with all those chins. Disgusting

  • ferdi.landsberg - 2012-03-27 23:07

  • ferdi.landsberg - 2012-03-27 23:08

    Sal al die stormpies asb Sondag weer comment? en dan ook weer na die' seisoen- soos die laaste 12 jaar? ;-)

      Saffa - 2012-03-27 23:14

      @Ferdi Moenie worry nie, die goed doen dit oor en oor en oor, wat is dit 11 jaar nou? Ek het nog nooit van so iets pateties in wereldrugby gehoor nie, in fact, wereld sport. Ken jy enige professionele sportspan wat in 11 jaar, 33 kompetisies NOOIT 'n beker kon wen nie. Nie een nie

      WernerZA - 2012-03-28 07:08

      @ saffa, die oostelike provinsie sukkel ook al vir lank, maar hulle was lanklaas in top kompetisies. selfs die griekwas, leeus en cheetahs het darem iets gewen!

  • Christopher Zoony De Croes - 2012-03-27 23:50

    woot go #STORMERS !!!!

  • WernerZA - 2012-03-28 06:13

    I think the bulls should rest a few more players... Just to make it a fair contest.

  • rupick - 2012-03-28 07:50

    Dit is nou eers Woensdag en hulle soek al klaar verskoning vir hulle verloor die naweek !!!!!!!!!!!

      Bulldozer - 2012-03-28 08:01

      Wat is jou verskoning vir die way wat jy lyk?

      Pomene - 2012-03-28 08:05

      Point taken and....................I agree !!!

      Gert - 2012-03-28 10:17

      @ Sipiwe. You have an awesome profile pic. I am sure you use this profile pic because you don't like what u see when you look into the mirror? be brave and reveal yourself. we want to see how you dress yourself and amaze us with your stunning looks.

    With all the WP players in the cheque book Bulls team it is going to be like WP A vs WP B on Saturday. Most of those okes will be able to say hi to their folks, family and school friends at Newlands. Shame on the bulls, you can't produce your own players so you buy WP players with Lottery money.
