Spies: Tough road ahead for Bulls
Cape Town - The Bulls may be on top of the
South African Super Rugby conference, but they know there’s a tough road ahead
until the end of regular season play.
The Bulls thrashed the Reds 43-22 at Loftus
Versfeld at the weekend, but out of their eight remaining league matches, only
two will be at home.
They tackle the Sharks and Stormers away
over the next two weeks, before facing the Lions at home.
After that, four games in Australasia await
against the Blues, (May 15), Chiefs (May 22), Brumbies (May 29) and Rebels (June
Their last league game is at home against the
Cheetahs on June 13.
“I think we can feel satisfied, but the
path ahead is a steep one. We know we’ll have to win away from home,” captain
Pierre Spies told Netwerk24.
Coach Frans Ludeke said he was chuffed with
the six-try romp against the Reds.
“We played against a desperate team and it
was a nice feeling creating and utilising so many chances out of broken play.”
Ludeke had high praise for fullback Jesse
Kriel, who was named man-of-the-match.
“Jesse is maturing with every match. He
showed how deadly he can be if there is space. It’s nice having someone that
can make things happen.”
