Bulls on top in SA
Posted on Saturday, April 29, 2006 - 19:52
The Vodacom Bulls have removed any doubt about which side is the best in the country with a convincing victory over the Sharks at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

Both sides played to keep the dream of an appearance in the semi-final alive, but for the Sharks the dream soon turned into a nightmare and the Bulls already had the bonus point for the fourth try in the bag after 30 minutes’ play.

Firstly, Gary Botha dived over next to a ruck and shortly thereafter JP Nel rounded off a backline movement in the corner. Then Bakkies Botha scored his brace, with lock partner Victor Matfield sending the big man over on both occasions.

The second half was not such an unqualified success for the Bulls, and with 20 minutes left it was the Sharks that finally caught fire and scored two tries in the blink of an eye to keep the dream alive.

This fightback was nipped in the bud after Pierre Spies put JP Nel in possession to go over for his second score.

With five minutes left, however, AJ Venter scored his side’s fourth try and created the opportunity for a draw. No side could score any additional points, however and the Sharks could go take a slightly relieved shower.

Points:

Vodacom Bulls:

Tries: Gary Botha, JP Nel (2), Bakkies Botha (2). Conversions: Morné Steyn (3). Penalty: Steyn. Sharks: Tries: Percy Montgomery, Andries Strauss, Albert van den Berg, AJ Venter. Conversions: Percy Montgomery (2). Penalty: Tony Brown.
