Bulls won’t bow to Saru threat

The Bully Boys have taken little notice of a Saru letter expressing dissatisfaction with the amount of game time afforded to black players, and look set to name a side that includes their usual quota of two black wingers.

Bryan Habana and Akona Ndungane have started every game of the Bulls’ campaign thus far this year, with extremely limited game time for Heini Adams, Tim Dlulane and Chilliboy Ralepelle from the bench completing the Bulls commitment in their Vodacom Super 14 match 22.

Backline coach Mike Bayly told Beeld the situation was not about to change, stating that the only consideration was the best XV each week.

“The only consideration is selecting the right team for the occasion,” Bayly said. “We don’t make any commitments, but we would like to give every player game time.”

Meanwhile Bayly said that those who equate the Force, the Bulls next opponent, with automatic five points are not being realistic.

“It will be a great boost to start with a victory, but it won’t be the end of the world if we lose. We have three more games on tour,” Bayly said.
