Bulls provide savage response to Stormers' tweet
SPOTLIGHT: Shots have been fired between the Stormers and the Bulls on social media ahead of their huge United Rugby Championship clash at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.
The Capetonians started the war of words on Sunday by asking if the Pretoria side is making any more “motivational videos” ahead of Saturday’s clash.
This was in reference to a video the Bulls produced ahead of a clash between the two teams in Pretoria in January. The one minute 23-second clip showed three “recovering Stormers fans” deciding to support the Bulls in the build-up to that January 22 match.
The Stormers eventually won that match 30-26.
In response to Sunday’s tweet, the Bulls savagely responded by saying: “Sorry for not responding sooner, we were still recovering from our unassisted win over Ulster.”
Before the Bulls’ 34-16 win over the Irish giants, the Stormers beat Ulster 23-20 a week earlier in controversial circumstances.
The Irish side had a legitimate try disallowed with less than two minutes left on the clock.
