The Bulls beat the Stormers to win back to back Super 14 titles

first_imgSunday May 30, 2010 The Bulls beat the Stormers to win back to back Super 14 titles The Bulls won their second consecutive Super 14 title on Saturday as they beat the Stormers 25-17 in front of 40 000 fans in Soweto. For those who missed it, or want to relive to it, here’s a highlights clip for you.Morne Steyn, who kicked 19 points in last years final, kicked 20 this time around, as he once again played a vital role in a Bulls victory. Wing Francois Hougaard scored the only try of the match as Fourie Du Preez put him into a gap and he rounded Stormers fullback Joe Pietersen with relative ease.The Stormers crossed twice, thanks to former Bull Bryan Habana and replacement scrumhalf Ricky Januarie, but the collective experience and composure of the Bulls made the difference in the end.“I must make a special mention of Victor Matfield and Fourie du Preez,” coach Frans Ludeke said. “Those two players, for Bulls rugby, they’re really special guys. Their rugby intelligence and the way they lead from the front is amazing. It’s great to have them there and hopefully we can keep them for many years.”“The start we had was really important. Obviously those high balls worked nicely in the beginning. There were some turnovers and the guys capitalised on that. The second half Bryan almost turned the game on its head, but the guys kept their cool and in the end we won.”Stormers skipper Schalk Burger was visibly distraught afterwards, but admitted that the best side on the day had won.“They’re a champion side so all credit to them. We couldn’t get any momentum going and struggled. We’re obviously disappointed for losing out in a final, but it’s a big improvement for us this season. Hopefully we can build on it for the next couple of years,” Burger said.ADVERTISEMENT Time: 05:03 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
