Bulls Outclass Kings

The Bulls outclassed the Southern Kings 38-6 in a Super Rugby encounter at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday night.  The visitors were the first to dirty the score sheet through Louis Fouche in the 12th minute and also scored the first try of the match through Jan Serfontein.  Tries for the Bulls were coming fast and in a superb fashion.

In the 21st minute, Jamba Ulengo scored in the corner but Tian Schoeman failed to convert.  Shortly after, in the 28th minute, SP Marais dotted over the line, this time Schoeman hit his target from the pin.  Fouche managed to score two three-pointers for his side as the Pretoria side led 17-6 at the break.

Nine minutes into the second stanza, Jesse Kriel dished a superb pass to Ulengo and the latter made no mistake (24-6).  Following the try, the encounter took a turn for the worst as it slowed down with not much going on for either side.  Nollis Marais’ men maintained their 24-6 lead by the hour mark and then four minutes later, Andre Snyman dotted over the line before Schoeman converted to make it 31-6.

In the 74th minute, Marais added another one to his name (38-6).  Following the try, the match was all but lost for the home side, as the writing was on the wall, and had been for most of the encounter.  Marais’ men ran out 38-6 winners.
