Blue Bulls finish top of the log


The Vodacom Blue Bulls finished on top of the log of the North Section of the Vodacom Cup and will consequently play against the Lions in the quarterfinals at Loftus Versfeld in a fortnight.

If the Blue Bulls beat the Lions at home they will play against the winner of the Griquas / Leopards match in the semifinal, which means they will only meet a team from the South Section in the final, providing that they keep winning.

WP finished on top of the South Section and will play against the Wildebeest in Cape Town in their quarterfinal, while the Free State and Boland will go head-to-head in the other quarterfinal.

The Blue Bulls coach Nico Serfontein confirmed on Monday that the SA under 20 players that are currently in France will be available for the quarterfinals, but there is still a question mark hanging over the eligibility of his captain Carel Hoffman.

Hoffman, who has done a marvelous job since taking over the captaincy from the injured Pieter Meyer, had to go for an appendix operation after the match against the Bulldogs and it is still uncertain when he will be able to play again.

Good news is that John Mametsa and Trompie Nontshinga are making steady progress after both injured their hamstrings against the Free State, but the Springbok hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle will not be able to play in the remainder of the Vodacom Cup.

Ralepelle injured himself before the Blue Bulls' first match against the SWD Eagles and in order to qualify for the semi's a player needs to play at least three games in the Vodacom Cup. He is, however, not yet fit to play against the Lions but likely the Bulls have enormously talented young players such as Brett Sharman, James van der Walt and Henri Bantjes to fill the gap left by Ralepelle.

Serfontein said it was very pleasing for him as a coach to see how the team has adapted to the ELV's (new laws) and they key factor for the Blue Bulls' coaching staff was to manage the players correctly because they had to make 37 changes, due to a variety of reasons, to the team throughout their campaign.

"Another pleasing aspect was that we selected 12 players of colour so far.

"These guys - Mox Mxoli, Bandise Maku, Fudge Mabeta, Hilton Lobberts, Vince Gwavu, Ignick Windvogel, Burton Francis, Luvuyo Mhlobiso, John Mametsa, Trompie Nontshinga, Tiger Mangweni and Rocco Jansen were all selected on merit and they are playing brilliant rugby."

29. Fact: All 14 teams still have a chance - albeit many very remote mathematical chances - of making the play-offs.

Yes, the reality is that for the bottom-placed Lions to make the play-offs a freakish series of unrealistic results have to conspire in their favour ... and they have to win all five their remaining matches, with bonus points, to keep that 'mathematical' dream alive.

We all know that on current form the prospect of the Lions - include in this group teams like the Reds, Highlanders, Cheetahs and Bulls - winning more than one game in their remaining fixtures will constitute a remarkable turnaround of their disastrous season.

30. Bulls:
Current position: 13th
Best possible finish: 3rd
Worst possible finish: 14th
Remaining matches:
19 April: v Highlanders,
03 May: v Waratahs, home
09 May: v Brumbies, home
17 May: v Cheetahs, away

31. Telling it like it is: “It is time, surely, for some immediate and drastic action from the B….s who have now become a disgrace to (the country’s) most well-stocked rugby region with their clueless and lethargic play in this Super 14. The members of the franchise's board should be meeting this week and their reaction to the most gormless back-to-back performances this champion side has produced in the competition's history should be conclusive. Someone has to go, and that someone should be coach ….... Possibly even captain ……… as well. It is that bad. That awful. The B…s resemble nothing now, if not a rudderless bunch of under-achievers who are simply going through the motions in a Super 14 season destined for ignominy. I'm convinced the only way to arrest this decline is to take the most drastic step imaginable. Yes, it will take a major move outside the comfort zone for the normally conservative B….s administration which is heard from all too infrequently. And yes, it might be unprecedented for a coach to be removed mid-campaign, especially one who is as engaging and, at his best, as capable as ……. But, surely, there is now no other alternative. Blind Freddy could tell you …... has lost the ear of his team.”

Some unfair South African writer on the Bulls? No, New Zealand journalist Marc Hinton on the Blues.

44. blitzem, passive resitance se voet! ek dink die stigting van 'n aktiewe ondersteunersklub het op 'n paar tone getrap. die BBRU weet reeds van die te stigte ondersteunersklub. hulle hou nie daarvan nie, want hulle weet dat dit 'n sterk spreekbuis (teen hulle) kan word.
