A Blue Bulls team loaded with its United Rugby Championship stars scored six tries against Griquas in a Currie Cup match at Loftus Versfeld.
The home team concluded a one-sided showdown with 40-3.
Before yesterday’s triumph, the Pretorians had lost ten matches in a row in all competitions, while they also played second fiddle to the Pumas and the Griffons in the Currie Cup series.
But with an eight that fired on all cylinders and Kurt-Lee Arendse who played the guitar together with Embrose Papier and Canan Moodie in the back line, the home team now had hopelessly too much ammunition for the men from Kimberley.
However, the Bulls are still second last in the official standings.
According to Russell Winter, the home team is enjoying the victory – after all, it is something that has been as rare as chicken’s teeth in Pretoria for the past few weeks – but they are certainly not going to light all the barbecue fires now.
“For the past few weeks, the players have done their best to win matches and I believe that at least we now have some momentum that we can build on. However, there is still a lot of hard work ahead,” said the Bulls’ assistant coach.
Blue Bulls: Tries: Ruan Vermaak, Mornay Smith, Cyle Brink, Embrose Papier, David Kriel and Gerhard Steenekamp. Goals: Chris Smith (5).
Greek wash: Penalty kick: George Whitehead.
