The Vodacom Bulls coach Frans Ludeke has made no changes to the team that played against the Force for Saturday’s game at Loftus Versfeld against the Hurricanes.

Ludeke said at the weekly press conference on Wednesday that the Hurricanes will do everything in their power to win at Loftus and that they are very dangerous from broken play.

“They are a team that is able to disrupt the opposition in the loose but the Bulls have come a long way since the beginning of the season and would like use our possession better on Saturday and be more clinical when we execute our moves.

“We played a lot better in the last two matches and we are creating opportunities but I think at certain stages we weren’t patient enough.

“Things will definitely change for us and the players are all taking responsibility. They are a tremendous proud group of players and we as a team need to be a lot smarter in the future in order to ensure that we get the right results on the scoreboard.”

The captain Fourie du Preez said the past few weeks was one of the toughest periods he as been through “but we managed it on tour and I think it will definitely make as stronger for whatever challenges we will face in the future.

“The tour was a very good experience for us as a team and if we could have won the last two matches we would have been in a better situation that what we have been at this stage during last year’s competition.”
