This Saturday the Vodacom Bulls take on the Western Force at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria. The Bulls had a good start to the 2013 Super 15 tournament. They beat the DHL Stormers last weekend by 25 points to 17.
The Bulls did have a shaky start, but managed to hold on and win the match fairly comfortably. The made sure that the Stormers did not get a bonus point. I was at the match and I must say that I was nice to be back at a nearly sold out Loftus Versfeld.
If you ask me the Stormers need Elton Jantjies to shape up if they are going to survive in this year’s Super 15. He missed 4 kicks in the match. Someone even cracked a joke about Elton Jantjies and Oscar Pistorius at my birthday braai on Saturday (and no I’m not telling you the joke).
The Western Force played against the Southern Kings last weekend in Port Elizabeth and lost their second Super 15 match of the tournament. The Force will be looking to restore some lost honor and should not be underestimated. Anything can happen in Super 15 rugby.
The Bulls are warmed up for Saturday, just check out this video below and you’ll see what I mean!
Are you warmed up for the match on Saturday? Who do you think is going to win? The Bulls or The Western Force? Leave a comment and let me know. I’d like to hear your thoughts.
