Bulls set sights on 2018 Super title
Cape Town - The Bulls have their sights set on winning the Super Rugby title in 2018, CEO of the Blue Bulls Company Barend van Graan has said.
The Bulls won Super Rugby titles in 2007, 2009 and 2010 but it’s unlikely that they will add to their tally this year, as a win for the Sharks over the Sunwolves in Durban on Friday night would end the Bulls’ playoff hopes.
But Van Graan has urged fans to be patient as they are in a building phase under new coach Nollis Marais.
“He (Marais) is the right man to again turn the Bulls into a championship team,” Van Graan told Netwerk24.
“We knew we were in a transition period and that it would be a challenging season. In 2008, when Frans Ludeke took over we finished 10th and won the competition the following year. Change takes time, especially when you start adopting a new playing style with a young team.”
The Bulls face the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Saturday in the final round of regular season Super Rugby fixtures.
