The Vodacom Blue Bulls did it, they managed to tackle their way out of the relegation/ promotion match to place fourth on the Currie Cup log and qualify for the semifinals. The Bulls secured their place by thrashing the Golden Lions 50-29 in a thrilling match. Many would say that they could see it happening but that doesn’t mean that we weren’t all watching in anticipation with very little nail beds remaining when the final whistle blew.
The slate will be wiped clean tomorrow when the Vodacom Blue Bulls meet the Sharks at the Shark Tank for the first of the Currie Cup semifinal matches. Pine Pienaar has named an unchanged side for the clash relying on his returning Springboks to provide the experience and high impact rugby that the Bulls fans are accustomed to. The Sharks have made a number of changes, including Springboks Lwazi Mvovo and Jannie du Plessis in the starting XV with Beast and Alberts playing off the bench. The Sharks have had a good season only losing three of their seven games compared the Bulls who have won five and lost five of their matches. That is not to say that the Bulls cannot pull this one out of the bag but they will need to step up a gear defensively and expect a close match. Many are backing the Sharks for the win but at Voltbet we believe that the Bulls have what it takes and they have not given up.
We wish the Vodacom Blue Bulls all the best for their game at the Shark Tank and we anticipate a high impact, full eighty minute game. We hope that all the preparation and experience pays off to take the Bulls into the Currie Cup finals next weekend.
