The Leopards added to the Vodacom Blue Bulls misery with a fine 51-26 (half-time 24-14) win in their provincial tournament match at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday.
The defeat consigned the Bulls to their sixth loss in seven matches while the Leopards moved to sixth on the log.

The visitors outscored the Blue Bulls six tries to four while fullback Rhyno Smith ended with a personal tally of 21 points as he slotted six conversions and three penalties.

The Leopards opened the scoring as early as the fifth minute when inside centre Henko Marais went over for a converted try. The Blue Bulls struck back almost immediately when eighthman Hanro Liebenberg crashed over for a converted score.

But the Leopards had their tails up and they soon reasserted their dominance when their No 8 Jeandre Rudolph crossed for a converted try in the 19th minute.
The Blue Bulls managed to level the scores in the 26th minute when flyhalf Joshua Stander scored and converted his own try to make the score 14-14.

But it was to be as close as the Bulls came and the Leopards went to the break holding a 24-14 lead after a converted try from flank Marno Redelinghuys and a Smith penalty.

The second half was all one way traffic as the Leopards ran in further tries from Marais, outside centre Johan Deysel and replacement hooker Dane van der Westhuyzen while Smith slotted two more penalties.

The Bulls could only respond with tries from flank Renaldo Bothma and replacement centre Kurt Webster.

    Skokkende naweek vir die bulle, ek is so teleer gesteld. Bulle moet besluit of hulle rugby gaan speel of dit ma los.

    Ek het vandag lekker saamgelag vir die Leeu/Bul grappies, werklikheid is, hierdie een trotse unie is nou meer in die k&k; as ooit. Om met beide die Super span en die Currycup span albei wedstryde ver te verloor raak nou nie meer iets snaaks nie, maar om met 'n 75 persent Super span teen die Luiperds te verloor,bevestig net die gemors wat die klomp diknekke ons nou in het. En het dieselfde span nie 3 weke gelede teen die Kings verloor nie. Vraag is, net soos met die regering, tot waar moet dit gaan voor iets gebeur????? Tyd sal leer, maar dit is iets wat ons nie meer het nie!!!!
  9. Wel wel..coach..jy trek die curriebeker sonder trots deur jou gat..jy hou aan om flou en stadige besit agter die skrum te beloon en begin alweer die week in Welkom met dieselfde resep. Julle huidige 9 en 10 verdedig swak
    Word wakker man.gebruik die Tuks kombinasie van Stander en Warner..or else..neuk maar aan
