RECAP: Bulls v Griquas
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the Currie Cup Round 10 encounter between the Bulls and Griquas at Loftus Versfeld.
The Bulls, coached this year by Gert Smal, downed Griquas 56-33 two months ago in Kimberley, with the men from the Northern Cape giving a good account of themselves despite the big winning margin.
They will travel to Pretoria with the knowledge that the defending champions will be a tough nut to crack at Loftus Versfeld, where they seldom have an off day.
