PRETORIA – The Blue Bulls’ resurgence may be too late to salvage their Currie Cup campaign, but their fantastic win over the Golden Lions suggests there is still kick in what was considered a dead horse.
At times Bulls coach Pote Human questioned his charges’ character, but there is no doubting their commitment following their gutsy 31-26 victory at Ellis Park on Saturday.
The Bulls’ character came to the fore after copping a red card and two yellows against a team that was unbeaten before Saturday’s clash.
The Pretoria-based side was outnumbered for an hour thanks to debutant Fred Eksteen earning a red card, before Andries Ferreira was shown yellow with 20 minutes to go. Dylan Sage copped a yellow after the hooter sounded, which ultimately proved inconsequential.
