Vodacom Bulls pushed hard in record-breaking win


The Vodacom Bulls again had to stage a second-half comeback to beat the Hurricanes 19-18 at Loftus Versfeld on Friday night.

Down 10-15 at the break, the Bulls used their superior kicking game to break the Hurricanes down in the last quarter of the match.

This tactic worked wonders as the Hurricanes not only conceded a yellow card (Victor Vito), but also gave away three penalties, all of which were converted into points by Mornè Steyn.

Steyn broke the 100 points barrier in only his fifth game of the season and the Bulls extended their winning streak to 11 in the competition and 15 at Loftus Versfeld.

The Hurricanes had most of the play in the opening half hour and scored two tries to take a 12-0 lead. They controlled possession and made the Bulls look ordinary.

A great run by Gerhard van den Heever sparked the Bulls into action and Zane Kirchner scored shortly after. Steyn kicked the conversion and a penalty to bring the Bulls back to two points.

Willie Ripia kicked penalties at both sides of the break to edge his team ahead again, but with 68% possession and 72% territorial advantage, it was just a matter of time for the Bulls to be rewarded.

Steyn kept the scoreboard ticking and when he slotted his fourth penalty, the Bulls were in front for the first time.

They kept their composure and pressure on the Hurricanes, who could not get out of their half.

Scorers:

Vodacom Bulls 19 (10). Try: Zane Kirchner. Conversion. Mornè Steyn. Penalties: Steyn (4).

Hurricanes 18 (15). Tries: Karl Lowe, Jeremy Thrush. Conversion. Willie Ripia. Penalties. Ripia (2).
