Bulls centre Jan Serfontein received the best player award.

Thanks for tuning in!

An utterly dominating win for the Bulls who keep their playoff hopes alive by moving into 6th spot. The Brumbies will leave South Africa with two losses and have slumped to No 4 on the overall Super Rugby log.

In next weekend's Round 16 action, the Bulls tackle the Lions at Ellis Park, while the Brumbies host the Melbourne Rebels.


Soundly beaten by a dominant Bulls side tonight. Tough night for the Brums. Back to Canberra for next weekend... - David Pocock

FULL-TIME: Bulls 44-23 Brumbies

80'- Time has run out for the men from Canberra though. No bonus point for them.

79' -  The Brumbies are chasing a bonus point try now...

79' - The Brumbies try a drop for a conversion but it misses.

Bulls 44-23 Brumbies

78'- TRY to the Brumbies. Centre Tevita Kuridrani pounces after Hougaard loses possession in front of his own line. It came after the Brumbies had kicked far up-field with the Bulls on the attack...

76'- Oh dear, Brumbies fullback Jesse Mogg breaks through but knocks on with the tryline begging! Not the Brumbies night. They have now knocked on 15 times!

75'- Ross is now off for the Bulls though. He looks a bit groggy. Maybe concussion.

75'- POLLARD converts from close to the touchline.

Bulls 44-18 Brumbies


Jono Ross barges over for his second try after a dominant lineout maul by the hosts.


Yellow card for Brumbies reserve hooker Josh Mann-Rea, who conceded a cynical penalty in front of his own tryline.

72'- A clever chip over the top from Serfontein puts Engelbrecht away. He sprints to the corner flag before chipping ahead, with the touchline unfortunately winning...

71'- Former WP and Sharks scrumhalf Conrad Hoffmann is now on for the Brumbies...

70'- It's all Brumbies now. Maybe all the Bulls substitutions were not so smart?!

69'- A missed conversion leaves the score at 37-18 in favour of the Bulls.

67'- TRY!  Ben Mowen scores in the corner for the Brumbies.

He followed up after Pat McCabe brilliantly flicked the ball in-field just before he was tackled out.

The TMO was called upon and correctly gave the try!

 Victor Matfield running like a centre... (Gallo Images)

64'- Bongi Bbonambi on at hooker for Callie Visagie, Morne Mellett on for prop Dean Greyling and Handre Pollard also on for Potgieter at flyhalf.

61'- PENALTY slotted by Potgieter.

Bulls 37-13 Brumbies.

OK, surely the game is won now. No more kicking for posts, Victor!

60' - A minute later they get another penalty and Potgieter will again line up, about 20m in from touch, 25m out.

59'- Potgieter is short with his penalty attempt... sigh...

58'- Matfield says they must kick for goal. Wrong call in my book.

Go for the fourth try! The game should be won when you're 34-13 up!

58'- A concerted period of attack by the Brumbies leads to nothing when they are caught on the halfway line holding on too long.


Jermaine Rhoda, a happy Bulls fan (via e-mail)

54'- Bulls captain Flip van der Merwe is off, replaced by Paul Willemse. Matfield to take over as captain.

Piet van Zyl also on at scrumhalf. Ndungane off, and Hougaard to wing.

51'- Potgieter stretches the Bulls lead with a PENALTY under the posts.

It was set up by a dominant Bulls scrum.

Bulls 34-13 Brumbies

48'- CONVERSION by Lealiifano.

Bulls 31-13 Brumbies

47'- TRY! From the ensuing scrum, big Brumbies wing Henry Speight barges over under the posts.

46'- Jesse Mogg nearly scores after running after his chip-kick in behind the Bulls. However, a Bulls player (Serfontein) gets there first but the Brumbies will get a five metre scrum as Serfontein took it over the dead-ball line.

45'- The Bulls can now afford to hunt the bonus point try. No more kicks at posts!

44'- Potgieter misses the conversion to the right.

Bulls 31-6 Brumbies

43'- TRY!

Bulls wing Bjorn Basson, like a thief in the night, intercepts a pass and runs 65m to score! No catching probably the fastest rugby player in South Africa.

42'- POTGIETER slots the easy penalty.

Bulls 26-6 Brumbies

41'- YELLOW CARD for Toomua.

Craig Joubert is harsh though. Yes it was high, but normally only penalties are given for that.

41'- Replays show Matt Toomua jump up and tackle JJ Engelbrecht high.

41'- The Bulls win a penalty after a Brumbies high tackle.

Referee Joubert wants to go upstairs to see how dangerous it was.

40'- Potgieter starts the second half.

And immediately the Bulls are on the attack when the Brumbies fail to catch the kick-off.

40'- Welcome back for the second half. No changes to either side at the break.


Honestly even though we saw 2 great tries it has been rather boring...Sad! too much kicking WAY TOO MUCH - JudgeRugby

HALF-TIME: Bulls 23-6 Brumbies

40'- The Brumbies launch one last attacking move on the stroke of half-time, but a brilliant rip from Jono Ross makes them lose it.

39'- PENALTY slotted by Potgieter.

Bulls 23-6 Brumbies

37' - Bulls prop Werner Kruger - like a top notch fetcher - wins a penalty on the ground for the Bulls. It's just inside the Brumbies half and Potgieter will line up - about a metre from the halfway line.

36' - Silly penalties creeping into the Bulls play now. They are up to 4 conceded, compared to 5 by the Brumbies. At one stage it was 0-5...

35'- PENALTY converted by Lealiifano.

Bulls 20-6 Brumbies

34'- The Brumbies win a kickable penalty when Bulls flank Jacques du Plessis is caught off-side.

Lealiifano to line up from virtually in front, 20m out.

32'- Another Brumbies penalty at scrum time. Dean Greyling told he wasn't keeping his elbow up. The Bulls will be slightly worried about their scrums at present...

31'- Bulls definitely winning the aerial battle at present! So far the Bulls have kicked 18 times, compared to the 11 by the Brumbies.


That was brilliant by Craig Joubert - Judge Rugby

28'- Referee Joubert gets a massive cheer when he kicks a beautiful torpedo after there were two balls on the field. What a kick! Why do professional rugby players never kick torpedos anymore?! 

26'- There are some gaping holes in this Brumbies midfield! Already four tackles slipped by the visitors.

25'- CONVERSION by Potgieter.

Bulls 20-3 Brumbies

24'- TRY! Jono Ross barges over next to the posts for the Bulls.

It was set up by a brilliant break from centre Jan Serfontein. Also a good final side-step by Ross!

22'- PENALTY converted by Lealiifano.

Bulls 13-3 Brumbies

21'- First kick at goal for the Brumbies as the Bulls are penalised at scrum time. Christian Lealiifano lines up, about 25m out, 20m in-field...

Werner Kruger was the man penalised for going down in the scrum.

19'- Already five penalties conceded by the Brumbies, none by the Bulls.

Referee Joubert warns them: "Penalties mounting," he says.

18'- PENALTY converted by Potgieter.

Bulls 13-0 Brumbies

17'- Serfontein nearly barges over again but is stopped just short. The Bulls then win a penalty right in front as the visitors go off-side under their own posts.

16' - Matfield loses a lineout near halfway but gets a penalty from referee Joubert who adjudged a Brumbies player had impeded him in the air...

15'- Another Bulls penalty at scrum time allows Potgieter to clear from inside his own 22m area...

15'- Already 15 kicks in play tonight. 9 by the Bulls.

13'- Superb PENALTY slotted by Potgieter.

Bulls 10-0 Brumbies

12'- Brumbies prop Scott Sio penalised at the first scrum for scrumming skew. Another shot for Potgieter from just inside the Brumbies half, close to the touchline...


Brumbies 900kg
Bulls 896kg

9'- CONVERSION by Potgieter.

Bulls 7-0 Brumbies

8'- TRY to Bulls centre Jan Serfontein.

But that try belongs to Victor Matfield who dummied his way through like a top notch centre in midfield!

Also a slick pass to his outside by Matfield there. The try also came from first phase when the Bulls attempted a short lineout, before Matfield popped up in the backline.

7'- The Brumbies appear to be struggling with all the up-and-unders the Bulls are launching...

6'- Potgieter misses a drop goal attempt from just inside the Brumbies half...

5'- Matt Toomua fails to take an up-and-under which gives the Bulls a chance to attack inside the Brumbies 22m are, but they then cough it up...

4'- Potgieter is well short with his penalty attempt. Strange, I thought he would have the legs...

3'- First penalty goes to the Bulls - Jono Ross winning it on the ground!

Potgieter will line up from just inside his own half...

2'- It's all Brumbies at the start here, but the Bulls defence is sound.

0' - Potgieter fails to find touch with his first kick, which gives the Brumbies - via the dangerous Henry Speight - a chance to attack.

19:10 - Brumbies No 9 Nic White kicks off...

19:09 - Craig Joubert is tonight's referee. 

19:08  - The Brumbies are again - like last week - clad in an orange strip.


The Bulls have won 6, lost 10; 422 points, 496 against; 44 tries, 62 conceded.

Average score: Brumbies 31-26 in favour of the Brumbies.

19:03 - DID YOU KNOW?

The Brumbies' win in last year's semi-final was their first since 2006 and only their fourth ever at Loftus Versfeld.

19:00 - Nick Mallett says home ground advantage and desperation will see the Bulls win tonight.

I agree with him that they're favourites, but can't believe that the Brumbies are themselves not desperate for a win, especially after coming unstuck against the Cheetahs last weekend.


Bulls have won all games at home in 2013, 2014 except for semi-final defeat to Brumbies last year, and draw to the Chiefs 2014 - SA Rugby

18:53 - Mallett feels Handre Pollard was slightly unlucky to lose his starting spot to Jacques-Louis Potgieter. It was done due to the rotation policy employed by the Bulls - something I'm no fan of. Pick the in-form flyhalf!

18:44 - In-studio SuperSport pundit Nick Mallett says the reason for the Brumbies changing into a kicking-oriented side in the last while was due to Jake White coaching them in 2012 and 2013...

18:43 - Despite conditions being perfect for running rugby, I'm still expecting a tactical kicking duel tonight. Both these teams are renowned for using the boot quite often...


Perfect conditions here at Loftus. No rain or wind in sight. A little bit of dew, but still perfect for running rugby.

Ahead of kick-off, the Bulls find themselves in second place in the South African Conference and eighth in the Overall standings.

The Brumbies are currently top of the Australian Conference and second in the Overall log.

Welcome to Sport24's LIVE scoring and interactive commentary on today's Super Rugby match between the Bulls and Brumbies in Pretoria!

  • 80'


  • 80'

    Knocked on by the Brumbies in desperation and this contest is done and dusted. Good win for the Bulls as the Brumbies end a disappointing tour of South Africa with another loss. Pure Bulls power and precision won that one as the Waratahs benefit in the Australian Conference.

  • 79'

    TRY, BRUMBIES, KURIDRANI! 44-23: Breakout try from the Brumbies as Lealiifano kicks ahead, Hougaard recovers but then spills possession and Kuridrani slides over. Brumbies chasing a try bonus point now.

  • 77'

    Half-chance for Mogg as the ball slips from his grasp when stepping past the defence. Scrum Bulls in their own half - is there another try to come?

  • 76'

    TRY, BULLS, ROSS! 44-16: Bulls go into the corner. Thunderous drive and Ross is there at the bottom for his second try! That caps a stellar performance from the home side as they secure the try bonus point. Pollard converts.

  • 75'

    YELLOW CARD, BRUMBIES, MANN-REA! Turnover ball and Hattingh charges forward in the 22. Basson spills the pass but now we come back for the penalty. Josh Mann-Rea sent to the bin!

  • 73'

    Promising break from Serfontein as he hacks on past Mogg, but he can't quite control the final touch. Ball goes into touch and from the lineout the Brumbies secure the ball. Trying to run from deep.

  • 71'

    Brumbies certainly playing with endeavour but that's another knock-on after plenty of phases. Bulls still yet to score a fourth try...

  • 69'

    TRY, BRUMBIES, MOWEN! 37-18: It might be in a losing cause, but that's a fantastic pass from McCabe. He keeps the ball in despite a double tackle and Mowen is sharp enough to ground the ball and score. Lealiifano hooks the kick.

  • 67'

    Pollard gets out of danger with a long kick to touch. Brumbies countering productively, Speight making ground down the touchline. Over the other side and have the Brumbies scored? Depends on the timing of the pass from McCabe as he was tackled into touch...

  • 65'

    Scrum penalty this time to the Brumbies. White finds touch outside the 22. Brumbies trying so hard to make something happen but that's another basic handling error. Bulls scrum on their 22.

  • 64'

    Good net gain for the Bulls after Mogg was pinned back into his 22. Scrum to the Brumbies after a slight knock-on - Pollard replaces Potgieter.

  • 62'

    PENALTY, BULLS, POTGIETER! 37-13: No mistake with that one and the Bulls now lead by 24!

  • 60'

    Long way out for Potgieter and he can't quite get the length on that kick. Brumbies clear and that's a slight knock-on from Van Zyl, but the Bulls win another penalty. Potgieter lining up another shot.

  • 58'

    Brumbies lose the lineout, a problem all night. Possession won back though as the Brumbies creep up to halfway. Struggling to find space in the defence and that's a penalty to the Bulls, Brumbies holding on.

  • 56'

    Mogg does well to clear the ball into touch but the Bulls are well set up on halfway. Hougaard has moved out to the wing and breaks, brought down by Speight. Reaching the 22, good defensive work from Mowen however wins a penalty. Mogg clears.

  • 54'

    Brumbies lineout in the Bulls half. Multiple phases end with a penalty as the Bulls don't roll away at the ruck. Tapped as the Brumbies look to catch out their hosts, but the ball is lost forward.

  • 52'

    PENALTY, BULLS, POTGIETER! 34-13: Order restored as the fly-half knocks over another kick. Bulls in control.

  • 51'

    Ugly, monster scrum from the Bulls who tap and go. Good pressure from the forwards sucks the Brumbies right and then the Bulls strike left, Potgieter trying to find a man but going himself. Pass then goes wide but Visser's contribution is poor as the ball flies into touch. Back we come for a penalty.

  • 50'

    Scrappy possession for the Bulls at the ruck and the ball goes forward off Hougaard. Brumbies scrum deep in their own half.

  • 48'

    TRY, BRUMBIES, SPEIGHT! 31-13: Speight pops up at first receiver and busts through four tackles to score! Soft defence and the visitors have some hope. Lealiifano converts.

  • 47'

    Mogg rapidly chasing after a kicked-through ball and Matfield just does enough to block him enough five metres from the line. Big chance for the Brumbies there. Went over the line off a Bull so the Brumbies have a five-metre scrum.

  • 45'

    TRY, BULLS, BASSON! 31-6: Basson is away! White flings a pass out wide and you're not going to catch the Springbok from there. Potgieter misses the conversion but that should be that - hard to see the Brumbies coming back from this.

  • 44'

    Pressure on Potgieter so his clearance kick isn't the best. Brumbies set to attack outside the 22.

  • 42'

    PENALTY, BULLS, POTGIETER! 26-6: Simple strike from the number ten and the Bulls almost have this one sewn up. Can the Brumbies respond?

  • 40'

    The Brumbies have a last tilt at getting their first try but Jono Ross does well to turn it over. Hougard thumps it into touch - and that's half time! A flying start from the Bulls - can the Brumbies pull them back? We'll be back in 10.

  • 40'

    YELLOW CARD, BRUMBIES, TOOMUA! Potgieter gets the second half underway and the Bulls are flying out of the blocks! Advantage played, back we come for a high tackle. Upstairs to the TMO we go... it's a yellow card! Toomua goes to the bin.

  • 40'


  • 39'

    PENALTY, BULLS, POTGIETER.23-6. A long-range penalty extendes the Bulls lead after Werner Kruger wins a penalty with good work at the breakdown.

  • 38'

    Matfield goes off his feet as he chases the restart. Speight makes good ground after the Brumbies swing it wide from the line-out.

  • 36'

    PENALTY, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO. 20-6. The Brumbies are still in this.

  • 34'

    Greyling is penalised at scrum time. White finds touch. Leon Power takes the line-out the Brumbies go wide. The Bulls are offside...penalty!

  • 32'

    Lots of kick tennis now with Visser and Mogg exchanging long territory finders. Eventually the Bulls keep it in hand but a knock-on gives the Brumbies a scrum inside their own half.

  • 30'

    Moore gives away possession cheaply by not throwing inn straight and an opportunity is lost. Hougaard send one into the night sky after the scrum, Ndungane chases.

  • 28'

    A big lead already for the home side. The Brumbies will have to score next or risk falling too far behind. White finds touch from a penalty for lazy running by Flip vd Merwe.

  • 26'


  • 25'

    TRY, BULLS, ROSS. 18-3. Hougard makes the initial break, Serfontein is up in support and gives a wonderful offload to Ross, who charges home to score!

  • 23'

    PENALTY, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO. 13-3. Great comeback from the Brumbies scrum as Dean Greyling goes down under pressure. Christian Lealiifano splits the uprights from downtown.

  • 19'

    PENALTY, BULLS, POTGIETER. 13-0. Sefrontein busts a few tackles, the Brumbies drift offsides and Potgieter slots the easy points.

  • 17'

    Matfield is interfered with in the air at a line-out after another penalty against the Brumbies scrum so Potgieter sets up an attacking line-out from the penalty.

  • 15'

    Fardy hits a half gap, but he is well dragged down from Matfiled - it all collapses into a comedy of errors after that so the referee calls them back for a Bulls scrum.

  • 13'

    PENALTY, BULLS, POTGIETER. 10-0. Good kick from JLP, who hits the target from an angle after the Brumbies scrum is penalised.

  • 11'


  • 10'

    TRY, BULLS, SERFONTEIN. 5-0. A classic first-phase try from the Bulls. Matfield makes the break before selling a dummy to Mogg and offloading to the flying Serfontein,who crosses untouched.

  • 7'

    MISSED DROP by Potgieter. They aren't easy from 50m, but he was way off. It's all Bulls for now.

  • 5'

    The first chance for points is for the Bulls with a penalty on the halfway line but Jacques-Louis Potgieter's kick falls short. It nevertheless allows the Bulls to ply some territorial pressure.

  • 3'

    Predictably Hougaard box kicks. The Brumbies try run it back but go nowhere. Mogg kicks long. Visser replies and finds touch near halfway.

  • 1'

    Here we go! Matt Toomua kicks us off and goes deep. The Bulls take a while to get it out but eventually Hougaard clears. Henry Speight counter immediately. The Brumbies are run into touch on the Bulls 10m line.

  • 0'

    The Bulls are unbeaten at Loftus this season...but they'll be tested tonight. Let's do this!

  • 0'

    Hello and welcome to Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria for our coverage for what is set to be a crucial clash in race for the play-offs as the Bulls host the Brumbies in a rematch of last year's semi-final.

  • 0'

    Bulls team news: Bulls captain Flip van der Merwe is back at the helm of the home team. Van der Merwe replaces Paul Willemse in the number four jumper while Werner Kruger rotates as tight-head prop with Marcel van der Merwe.

  • 0'
