Super Rugby

Cape Town - Former Springbok coach Nick Mallett was not impressed by the Bulls' efforts in their 39-24 Super Rugby defeat to the Jaguares in Pretoria at the weekend.

It was the Bulls' fourth straight defeat to start the season and leaves them languishing at the bottom of the standings.

Speaking in the SuperSport studio after the game, Mallett highlighted a "comedy of errors" on attack and defence from the Bulls.

"Whenever they were on attack, they would just use one-off runners, which is the easiest way for any defence to defend against. The attack was hopeless and their defence was embarrassing. There was a clear lack of understanding on how to defend a counter-attack and how to defend a shifting centre," Mallett said.

Mallett called on the senior players in the Bulls team to stand up and be counted.

"The experienced players that the Bulls signed were utterly invisible in this game, quite frankly. Juandre Kruger should be leading from the front, but he was nowhere and I hardly saw Josh Strauss. These are the guys should actually be bringing the youngsters along with them, but they are not producing enough aggression and are not leading from the front, which is what the Bulls need and why they were signed for.

"The lineouts were poor, I think they lost five out of 13 on their own throw and that is inexcusable. And their discipline was really poor. So there wasn't a single thing that stood out. You cannot compete at this level playing like that. It's just a shambles. It's back to the drawing board for the Bulls."

Mallett also commented on the Stormers' 33-14 defeat to the Blues at Newlands - the Cape side's first loss of the season.

The Stormers slipped 37 tackles and Mallett said they were tactically outfoxed by the Blues.

"The reason why the Stormers' defence was poor was because the Blues were unpredictable. They didn't run one-off runners off nine. They used the width of the field, stationed their loose forwards out wide causing chaos on the outside and that variety created difficulty in defence for the Stormers.

"The Blues created mismatches and that is what you're looking for. It was intelligent backs against dumb forwards and big forwards against little backs. By contrast, the Stormers showed none of that today," Mallett stressed.

The Cape side couldn't dominate at scrum time as they had in previous games and struggled to get on the front-foot.


Mallett added: "If the Stormers don't dominate with their front row against a team, if they don't get on the front foot with those scrum penalties, kicking to the corner and getting their driving maul going, then they don't have the intensity to get off the line with urgency. They didn't have any of that because the Blues nullified them.

"So, looking ahead, they really have to consider what to do when that happens again. Because the Brumbies, Crusaders and Chiefs - who they play on tour - are all going to control the Stormers pack. You need to be able to play the game without getting five or six scrum penalties every game, which the Stormers had up to this point. And in this game, they didn't get them and they were in a lot of difficulty."

Highlanders facing serious issues in the tight five - especially lock. The guys they are taking to South Africa have a handful of caps between them.

https://www.odt.co.nz/sport/rugby/highl ... d-pretoria
The Highlanders are facing a lack of second-row depth as the side arrives in South Africa.
The team is set to take on the Bulls this Sunday morning in Pretoria and then head to Argentina to play the Jaguares on March 15.

The touring squad of 27 was released publicly yesterday and includes two players new to the squad in Otago flanker Slade McDowall and Waikato lock Will Tucker.

Locks Josh Dickson and Pari Pari Parkinson were not named in the touring squad. Dickson has had a sore shoulder while Parkinson played in the opening game and has not been sighted since. He has a niggly ankle injury.

A request for comment from the Highlanders about the two absent locks was not answered.

The four locks touring are: Jesse Parete, Manaaki Selby-Rickit, Jack Whetton and Tucker.
This is also a major worry.
Centre Rob Thompson is another absentee. He has had a quiet start to the season and has been bothered by a quad injury.
Bulls by at least 15.

The keystone coaches seem intent on playing your best 10 at 12 anyway so probably doesn't matter if one of your good midfielders isn't fit.

They also aren't playing Fakatava on the bench either which is pissing this Magpies fan off. :D

The Vodacom Bulls have started preparations for their Vodacom Super Rugby clash against the Highlanders this coming Saturday with the added benefit of having no new injuries.

Existing injuries:

• Burger Odendaal started running sessions today after injuring his ankle against the Blues two weeks ago. A call on his availability will made later in the week.

• Tim Agaba is still struggling with a neck niggle and will consult a specialist today to determine the course of action.

“For me, I will try and keep the players positive,” he said, adding: “However, this is not good enough, not for the Bulls.

“I will have a hard look at myself personally and then at the players at what we can do there, but I am very disappointed.”

A sense of “accountability” filtered into the hallways of Loftus Versfeld on Monday as both players and coaches searched for the answers to the Vodacom Bulls’ poor start to the season.

The Bulls have lost their opening four fixtures of the season and are under immense pressure to turn the ship around against the Highlanders in their Vodacom Super Rugby fixture at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday before heading overseas for a four week tour.

On Monday Loftus was abuzz with news that former Springbok assistant coach Swys de Bruin was spotted at the union and in talks with the Bulls.

De Bruin was invited to share his views on the side with the management and met with CEO Alfons Meyer, BBRU President Willem Strauss and coach Pote Human.

All this happened as the Bulls cancelled their training for the day and held an “accountability meeting” for the players with no coaching staff present.

Human told Supersport.com afterwards that the meeting with De Bruin was “fruitful” and that he had been invited to share his views on the team.

“We had a chat with Swys, but it was just a general discussion on where the team is at. I have no problems chatting to anyone and while it was just a chat, it was a very good discussion.”

De Bruin is known as an attacking specialist and is currently consulting for the Isuzu Southern Kings in PRO14.

But after the team’s 39-24 loss on their home ground to the Jaguares, the two team captains’ Burger Odendaal and Trevor Nyakane called a players’ meeting to talk about “accountability” for the results.

“The players asked for the meeting and didn’t want coaches present. We agreed and they went ahead,” Human said.

Sources inside the camp said the players held a frank, open discussion about the problems the team was facing and their inability to grab a victory although in three of the four games they had more than enough chances to do so. The players apparently took ownership of their performances and according to one source the meeting was very productive and positive.

Against the Sharks and Blues they were in the game until the last few minutes while a lack of penetration killed them against the Stormers, despite having over 65% possession and battering the Stormers line for long periods on end.

Against the Jaguares they were bullied up front, and the defensive system, especially in the midfield without Odendaal there, looked brittle and ineffective, and cost them a number of tries.

With the team’s backs against the wall, Human agreed they need a win this weekend, at all costs.

• The Bulls are set to name their side to face the Highlanders on Wednesday and a number of changes are expected to the team to face the New Zealanders. After some below par performances by some senior players, Human is set to shake up the selection a bit in order to overcome the early season slump and get the team back on the winning path.

People should not be surprised. The Bulls have always been a bit wrong turny. Most have snorre, most are policemen, all of them kommen. I mean, just look at the evidence : My bloed is blou, the Steve Hofmeyer song, the fights in the stands. The coach is a relic, the board even more so.

They were on the right path with Mitchell there, but after he left they reverted back to type.

Some members of the rugby fraternity are becoming twitchy with the Bulls’ perseverance with the 35-year-old pivot.
Stuck at the bottom of the Super Rugby log, the Bulls have a litany of problems to address ahead of Saturday’s meeting with the Highlanders at Loftus as well as an overseas tour looming.

Coach Pote Human is also under increasing pressure from certain quarters for his perseverance of Morne Steyn at flyhalf as the veteran is currently keeping promising playmaker Manie Libbok on the bench.

But Steyn insists he’s not going to give up on his starting berth and believes his 22-year-old understudy will benefit from the experience. “I’ve been there and it helped me a lot.”
