PRETORIA – The Bulls’ recent unbeaten run against New Zealand opposition in the Land of the Long White Cloud has given the side a spirit of fearlessness.
This will come in handy in their Super Rugby quarter-final clash against the Hurricanes in Wellington on Saturday.
The Bulls’ talismanic flyhalf and captain Handre Pollard said they were well aware of the challenge the Hurricanes posed in their backyard, but they nevertheless back themselves.
“Playing in New Zealand is always tough, but luckily we take quite a bit of confidence from the tour we had a few weeks ago,” Pollard said.
“Those couple of draws were gutsy performances from our side, and if we can just stay in the fight for the full 80 minutes, anything can happen. It is play-off rugby, one mistake at the wrong time or one moment of brilliance at the right time can swing the game your way.”
