Backs beat forwards in cricket

articles.comments (0)


The annual day/night cricket match between the forwards and backs resulted in a convincing 30 runs win for the latter at Loftus Versfeld on Tuesday, with Vodacom Bulls captain, Pierre Spies, admitting that' the backs have more talent'.This fun-filled event has become a regular fixture now for the Vodacom Bulls and provides a perfect foil for the serious preparations ahead of the Vodacom Super Rugby competition.

The first match was held in 2007 and has grown in stature and popularity ever since. The backs scored 115 runs and then managed to bowl out the forwards for 85.

On a more serious note, the Vodacom Bulls will play their first friendly match of the season against the MTN Lions at Orlando Stadium in Soweto on February 2nd and the Toyota Cheetahs in Polokwane a week later.

Tickets for both matches are available, as is season tickets for 2013.
