So damn close. Brumbies 34, Bulls 36

johnboy 22 April 2012 4

Foxsports tells the tale of our brave lads sticking it to the highly fancied Bulls up on the high veldt, scoring five tries to two, picking up two bonus points, and just barely failing to get the win.

We’re getting a bit sick of heroic loss, but we’ll take this one.

The team went missing for 40 minutes in the middle of the game (as in they were a bunch of individuals and not a team), they gave a try away by not playing to the whistle, and they gave away too many penalties.

So there’s plenty of work to be done, and improvement to come. But two competition points from Loftus Versfeld is a very good result.

Surprisingly the saffa fans over on Keo are really letting rip at Marius Jonkers and saying the Brumbies were robbed.

Keo is not usually the place you would go looking for balanced commentary either. So you know he really stuffed up if they’re getting in to him!

Having just watched the foxsports snippet of the knock on, I’m completely shocked. It’s got to be the worst, or one of the worst, refereeing mistakes I’ve ever seen. It’s so blatant! I’m not sure how 2 touchies and the ref all missed it. Perhaps the Brumbies ought to don black armbands with the word “Justice” on them next week 😉

There are certain games that you can effectively write-off at the start of the season. The Bulls at Loftus is one of them. To come away from that with two bonus points is great.

And while it is frustrating that we didn’t play the whistle, that decision from the referee was disgraceful.

This young team is playing well.
Discipline & some bizarre decisions from the ref cost us.

“That” knock-on & the longest advantages ever……….well!
I can’t wait for the Waratards game in 2 weeks.
