The Bulls disappoint again when a 14-man Brumbies beat them at Loftus 38-28.
If Mitchell was upset with his teams performance last week then I do not want to be part of the team talk on Monday.
The Bulls slipped tackles which was very disappointing.
Tries from Kyle Godwin, Lachlan McCaffrey, Folau Fainga’a, Tom Banks and Andrew Muirhead proved too much for the Bulls who scored through Handre Pollard, Johnny Kotze and Roelof Smit.
There just was no urgency in their play and they looked flat on attack and defence.
Even when the Bulls were in the Brumbies red zone they did not seemed to be able to keep ball in hand and force Brumbies in mistakes.
It was hard to watch as the Bulls ran out of puff in the second half.
Fainga’a got sent off in the 60th minute which looked to sway the the momentum in favour of the Bulls, but instead the Bulls could not keep the Brumbies out.
The Bulls completely dominated the last quarter of the first half but were denied by some heroic Brumbies’ defending, with the Canberra outfit having to halt maul after maul as the Brumbies went in to the interval only trailing by four.
That turned the game for me as they put so much into that final minutes in the half but came away with nothing.
You need to take your chances and the Bulls simply did not do that.
The Bulls can only blame themselves for this poor performance.
