PRETORIA – Bulls coach Pote Human hailed his team’s four-week tour of Australasia as a success after they finished the New Zealand leg with draws against the Blues and Highlanders.
It was the Bulls’ best tour since 2010, boosting their chances of reaching the playoffs in this year’s Super Rugby tournament.
“We would have wanted to win but the way the guys fought back in the second half was excellent and to fight till the end was great,” Human said. “The Bulls usually don’t do well overseas, and I think it was an unbelievably good tour for us.”
The two draws said something about the Bulls’ character.
The Bulls may even have been in line for a home quarter-final as South African conference winners had a few calls gone their way, and the ball bounced in their favour.
