Bulls tour of hell!
March 6, 2013 in Uncategorized
The Bulls might have horns again; however, are they big and sharp enough for the tour of hell?
The Bulls are not always the most successful tourists: maybe because of the language barrier….? Who knows?
It will take a massive effort from Pierre ‘show pony’ Spies’ Bulls to beat the Blues, Cruasders, Reds and Brumbies abroad. Normally touring teams target a team or two for a victory and then try and optain bonus points vs the Big Dogs. Unfortunately, the Bulls will just encounter Big Dogs ‘down under’ and ‘across the ditch’!
The Bulls will play percentage rugby, that is what they know best. It is also the ‘blueprint’ of Bok rugby. Front up and play in the opponents half. Winning will be through applying so much pressure that will force those teams in to making mistakes and kick penalites against them. Typical SA approach. It has work on occassions, however, it will not make SA rugby a dominant force like the mighthy All Blacks.
To beat these teams in their backyard doesn’t always happen.
Can the Bulls win any games on tour?
