Bulls blown away

If Friday night was awful for Bulls supporters, it got even worse on Saturday afternoon when the Wildebeest smashed the Vodacom Cup Bulls.

Michael Vlismas reports that the 22-13 win ranks as one of the big upsets in the past few seasons of the competition. The Bulls led 13-5 at halftime in Durban but were blown away in the second half.

In Cape Town, Western Province’s dismal run in the competition continued when the Lions easily beat them 24-20. The visitors led 24-5 and a late flurry added some sanity to the scoreboard.

On Friday night @lantic Pumas fullback Casper Steyn delivered another clinical kicking display in his side’s 31-17 victory over the Boland Cavaliers at the Boland Stadium.

Steyn slotted two conversions, four penalties and scored a try for a personal points tally of 21.

Both teams scored three tries apiece in the match, but it was the accuracy of Steyn’s boot that made the difference.

Griquas were made to work hard for their 36-31 win over the Mighty Elephants at the EPRFU Stadium, which puts the defending champions’ campaign back on track after a shock defeat at the hands of the Cavaliers the week before.

In the weekend’s other matches, the Griffons beat the Border Bulldogs 60-10 at the North West Stadium. And at Outeniqua Park, the Falcons outplayed the Eagles to defeat them 38-6.
