SUPER 15 RUGBY WEEKEND 22/23 FEB, 2014: CHEETAHS VS BULLS

What a display of trench warfare! Bodies all over the place. The weather was appalling. The home side won because they kept the ball behind their opponents and tackled with extraordinary determination – van der Walt was outstanding. Goosen was so determined to go with the kicking game – the right strategy under the conditions – that he even attempted drop goals from inside his own half. ( Spectators' reactions to drop-goal attempts are fickle. If the ball goes over, there is great rejoicing; if the kick fails there is much hindsight-wisdom and sharp criticism.) Bulls played hard but without, it seemed, much in the way of focus. Leadership? I hope their flyhalf, Fouche, improves as the season continues. He battled on the day. Final Score: 13- 10 (?)
