The Bulls’ game plan may seem old school but coach Pote Human insists they are equally adept at playing an expansive game.

The Pretoria side has been a revelation in two of their three opening Super Rugby matches, beating the Stormers and the Lions.

And  Saturday they aim to do the same to the Sharks at Loftus.

They outclassed the opposition in classic Bulls fashion, using the slow poison effect on both occasions.

The powerful pack beats the stuffing out of their opponents, allowing flyhalf Handre Pollard to control the game on the front foot with time and space to boot.

Human adds: “Any game is won and lost up front, which just makes it easier for the backline players where Polly (Handre Pollard) takes over and decides whether we run or kick. 

“We step onto the field with an attacking mindset and that is how we want to play the game, which is also the only way we will get people back at Loftus.”
