The Vodacom Bulls will start their 2015 Vodacom Super Rugby campaign at home and will play five of their first six matches at Loftus Versfeld, it was announced on Thursday.

After the opening match against DHL Stormers, the Bulls will play the Hurricanes and Cell C Sharks at home before travelling to Bloemfontein to face the Toyota Cheetahs.

The Bulls will tour late in the competition and will play matches in May against the Blues, Chiefs, Brumbies and Rebels.

The season commences on the same weekend of February, but concludes one month earlier to allow national teams adequate time to prepare for the 2015 Rugby World Cup, which kicks off on 18 September. As a result, there will be no June Test window in the 2015 Super Rugby season.

    WANNER KOM DIE DAMN SPAN UIT!!!!
    IS DIT N STAATSGEHEIM?
    AG NEE MAGGIES BBR - KRY IETS REG behalwe n identiteitspoets artikel oor Ross in die media!
  2. gravatar Brett Bull says:
    Ons sal volgende jaar in die Super Rugby reeks werklikwaar ons staal moet wys. Ons het `n baie gunstige program, as ons nie iets daarmee kan maak nie gaan ons dit nooit kan doen nie. Speel die Crusaders op Loftus in die begin van die seisoen op Loftus - dis `n bargain. Sewe tuis games voor ons toer, kan nie vir `n beter program gevra het nie!!!!!!

    Met spelers soos Flip, Arno, Marcel, Pierre, Adriaan, Lappies, Hougie, Handre en Jan terug behoort ons `n goeie Super span in die veld te kan stuur. Moet net vir FL iewers heen stuur sodat hy `n moderne rugby game-plan kan gaan leer.

    At last, Bulls most favourable S15 schedule!! Let show them Sharks & Stormers how it's done?

    @Brett Bull: Stem saam! Goeie spelers, hulle kort net n nuwe afrigter met n aanvallende wedstrydplan! Piet Van Zyl het verander in n baie gemiddelde speler vandat hy by Bulle aangekom het, maar net 1 voorbeeld! Nog baie sulke spelers!!

    Skop en jaag/boxkick rugby WERK NIE MEER NIE Mnr Ludeke!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I would not say that our draw is favourable at all. I wouldn't call the Blues, Chiefs and Brumbies at home favourable ???
  6. gravatar Honibal says:
    Dis 'n lekker Super 15 loting. Dalk moet ek my Loftus skoene aantrek en weer 'n seisoenkaartjie aanskaf....

    @ Bullebakkies - Skop en jag/boxkick rugby does NOT work why does Heyneke and Ludeke keep on with it. Drives me mad we just keep kicking possession away.
