The Bulls banished the memory of last week’s defeat by thrashing the Premier XV 68-5 in Nelspruit.
The Bulls were completely dominant in all facets of play, and never relinquished the choke hold they had established early in the match.
Debutant Bjorn Basson made an immediate impression, scoring a hat-trick, including a slick chip and chase. Morne Steyn never missed a kick in eight attempts. There were braces for Pierre Spies and Wynand Olivier, while Deon Stegmann and Derick Kuun got on the scoreboard as well.
