Super Rugby Unlocked Week 4 – I Hated The Lions And Loved The Bulls

Myself maybe not in a good mood regarding the performance of the Emirates Lions. Structure or the lack thereof is not winning rugby against stronger teams and the Lions need to get their act together. The Sharks did what was needed while the Bulls was brilliant in the first 40 minutes. 

Bart desperately trying to calm me down. We then discuss the fixtures of the upcoming weekend. Interesting opinions of the outcome we expect.

The Vodacom Bulls were impressive in their 39-6 victory over the DHL Stormers on Saturday evening in Pretoria, where the derby was called off due to a thunderstorm, with the host credited with a bonus-point win as the match had gone past half-time.

In the early match on Saturday the Cell C Sharks outscored the Phakisa Pumas by six tries to three in their exciting clash played in Nelspruit, where the visitors led 28-7 at the break, for a comprehensive 42-19 win.

On Friday evening the Emirates Lions played at their Johannesburg base for the first time since the start of the competition and the Pride of Jozi duly posted a sparkling 61-31 triumph over the Tafel Lager Griquas. Early log leaders the Toyota Cheetahs enjoyed a bye over the weekend.

After four rounds of action it is the Vodacom Bulls who are the new log leaders on 15 points from three wins. They are followed by the Toyota Cheetahs and Cell C Sharks (both on 9 points), the DHL Stormers (8), Emirates Lions (7), Phakisa Pumas (5) and Tafel Lager Griquas (2).
