PRETORIA – A defeat was hardly the start the Blue Bulls needed to kick off their Currie Cup campaign, but the shortened format means there is no time for wallowing in sorrow.
The truncated format does not allow for second chances, and the Light Blues are looking to kick on with a tough assignment against the Cheetahs at Loftus Versfeld on Friday.
Former Springbok flyhalf Marnitz Boshoff, who made a cameo in their 20-5 defeat to Western Province, said they needed to bounce back or kiss their playoff hopes goodbye.
“Because it is only one round, it is a bit tougher, but it is an exciting competition, and it is almost the case that any team can win on the day,” Boshoff said.
“We will have to get into the right frame of mind to get our first victory.”
