Match Report – Bulls throw away game against Jaguares


The Bulls have only themselves to blame for throwing the game away against the Jaguares on Saturday at Loftus.

As expected the Bulls took the conservative approach to the game taking points when every it was offered.

They were keeping the ball tight around the breakdown and taking very few risks.

Their physicality was well matched by the Pumas but took an early lead through three penalties via the boot of Manie Libbok.

The visitors got their first points through Pablo Matera.

The second half seemed to bring a Bulls side that were changing their minds and score tries.

The Bulls sent the ball down the backline spreading it wide. They showed fantastic hands in the tackle to open space for Jade Stighling to go over in the corner.

Libbock got two more penalties over with Iglesias getting one over which gave the Bulls 20-10 lead with 10 minutes to go.

It was here were it all ent wrong for the Bulls.

The Jaguares scored two brilliant tries in this time which showed off their brilliant skill in keeping the ball alive. Mottie was the man at the end off both tries to sealed the win for the visitors.

Two yellow cards started it all for the Jaguares when Tim Agaba and Conraad Van Vuuren was send off.

Playing with thirteen men in the last 9 minutes of the match was just too much for a side who left out a few Springboks for this match.

  1. Thor looks tired and without Pollard the Bulls looks at best like a good CC side. They have a moerse problem at lock now and will need to see who will loan a few players.

    This is just going to get more difficult for the Bulls, Their pack is one injury away from another last position in SR.

    O my fok, dankie tog the Sharks decided to play to their potential on Friday.

  2. Think with Brits out he needed some kind of leader while resting Pollard and Kriel.

    They also just have too many locks out at the moment. With Thor out as well their options at lineouts become very little.

    Bulls just have too many injuries at the moment and it seems there is no clear end to it. As I have it they will have to look outside group now to fill the lock problem they have
