The Brumbies got a bonus point win over the Vodacom Bulls on Friday when they beat them 22-10 scoring three tries to one.

Some early good defence from the Bulls got them in the Brumbies half which resulted in a penalty by Libbok to put the visitors in front.

This did not last long with the Brumbies finding the gabs in the Bulls defence to get over in the corner for the first try and the lead of 5-3 after 5 minutes.

It was the Bulls then that did all the play in the Brumbies red zone and forced a few penalties from the lineout drive which ended up in a yellow card for the home side.

After a massive scrum from the Bulls five meters out Liebenberg was at the end of the Bulls first try and the lead of 10-5 after 15 minutes.

The Brumbies got the better of the field position which some poor discipline from the Bulls. They went a few times for the drive from the linout but did not work but it was Kuridrani that found a huge gab in the midfield to get over for his team second try and the lead.

The Bulls could not add any points in the final minutes of the half which gave the lead to the home side 12-10 at the break.

The Brumbies stretch their lead after they got back into the Bulls half of the field to bash over again getting through the Bulls midfield. This gave them a 17-10 lead after 49 minutes in the second half.

The Bulls struggled when the game got loose and from a turnover the Brumbies recycle the ball and got it out wide to score again in the corner. This took their lead to 22-10 with 20 minutes to go.

The Bulls had opportunities but some desperate defence from the Brumbies was good enough to held them out each time.

At the end the Brumbies got what they wanted, bonus point win and stretches their lead on top of the Aussie conference.

  1. It’s EXPECTED that ZeeBulls are gonna lose outside the confines of the Death Star.
    Pote Demon will feel zero repercussions from any away loss from the ZeeBull sycophants aka “fans” that support this “team”.
    ZeeBulls is to Rugby Union what Scientology is to religion.
