  • FULL TIME - The full time whistle sounds in Pretoria!  It wasn't always pretty after half time but the Bulls, despite being strongly challenged early in the second half, have ground out a hard fought, well deserved 28-10 bonus point victory over the Rebels.
    '
  • It's been a rather sloppy conclusion to this match with players on both sides exhausted having given their all for the full 80 minutes.
    80''
  • A handling error from the Rebels right on the half way line results in a turnover and will give the Bulls a chance to set up a counter attack.
    79''
  • The Rebels are the walking wounded at the end of this match with Michael Ruru now receiving treatment - the scrum half looks to be in plenty of discomfort.
    77''
  • NO TRY!  Manie Libbok, running an excellent line, explodes away to touch down under the posts however the try will not stand with the TMO review showing that there was some obstruction in the lead up.
    76''
  • The Rebels have both of their hookers off the field due to injury and so the scrums for the remainder of this match will be uncontested.
    75''
  • The Rebels look to be completely out on their feet in the dying minutes of this contest with several players suffering the effects of cramp.
    75''
  • And that will just about do it!  Andre Riaan Warner takes the quick tap catching the Rebels' defence napping and, virtually untouched, he slips through the defensive line to score the bonus point try.
    74''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! Bulls (Handre Pollard) 28-10 Bulls

  • Try
    TRY! Bulls (Andre Riaan Warner) 26-10 Bulls
    72''
  • Penalty to the Bulls!  The home side, looking to land the knock out blow, turn down a shot at the posts and will instead kick for touch to set up an attacking lineout 5m out from the Rebels' line.
    69''
  • MISS!  The kick from Reece Hodge looks good off the boot however the ball has fallen short of the target.
    67''
  • A penalty to the Rebels and it will be superboot Reece Hodge to line up the posts from downtown - he puts the tee down 60m out from goal.
    66''
  • Turnover for the Rebels - an excellent clearance downfield from the last line of defence has the Bulls retreating back inside their own territory.
    64''
  • Strong work over the ball at the breakdown by Richard Hardwick is rewarded with a penalty - the resultant kick for touch from Reece Hodge takes play over the half way line.
    61''
  • A break in play with Jermaine Ainsley on the turf and receiving treatment for what appears to be a lower leg injury.
    61''
  • The Bulls roll the maul within touching distance of the Rebels' line but the visitors are able to get enough numbers behind the ball to keep the home side out.
    59''
  • Turnover ball to the Rebels!  The Bulls attempt to rumble the maul forward but the Rebels do well to stem the momentum and are rewarded with the scrum feed.
    57''
  •  Attacking opportunity here for the Bulls who have the line out throw right on the Rebels' 22m line.
    56''
  • TMO!  The try line is wide open for Warrick Gelant who chips ahead inside the in-goal area before being taken in the tackle by Marika Koroibete - the question is was the challenge late but the decision after the review of the tape is that the Rebels' winger was committed to the tackle.
    54''
  • Some sloppy handling from the Rebels but they manage to cling to possession right on the half way line.
    52''
  • Enormous pressure here on the Bulls' defence once again but they eventually manage to get enough numbers back to hold out the Rebels' attack.
    50''
  • The Rebels have the first points of the second half!  Jack Maddocks steps out of the tackle before straightening to draw in the defence and then a deft offload to his right sets Michael Ruru on a path to the try line.

    TRY! Rebels (Michael Ruru) 21-8 Bulls
    46''
  • The Rebels have started brightly enough early in this second half but they desperately need to convert on the scoreboard if they are to have any chance of chasing down the home side.
    44''
  • The Rebels look to spread the ball way out to the left however the pass to Reece Hodge from Jack Maddocks was forward out of the hands.
    42''
  • SECOND HALF - The Bulls kick off to get us underway in the second half.
    40''
  • HALF TIME - The first half comes to an end in Pretoria.  It was all the Bulls in the opening 40 minutes with the home side running in 3 unanswered tries.  The Rebels will rue some wayward kicking in front of the posts that denied the visitors a chance to apply some scoreboard pressure.  At half time, it is the Bulls well in control, leading by 21-3 over the Rebels.
    '
  • The Bulls are in after the half time siren!  A long, looping pass out to the left finds the unmarked Divan Rossouw - the winger drives for the line and gets in just inside the corner flag.

    CONVERSION! Bulls (Handre Pollard) 21-3 Bulls

  • Try
    TRY! Bulls (Divan Rossouw) 19-3 Bulls
    40'''
  • So close for the Bulls!  They crash their way over the line but, amongst a huge pack of players, they are unable to make a grounding - it will be a 5m scrum to the home side.
    39''
  • A crucial turnover from the Rebels!  Ross Haylett-Petty gets in a timely arm at the line out to secure possession for the visitors right on their own line.
    38''
  • A crucial few minutes here in the lead up to half time - the Bulls are threatening deep inside Rebels' territory and have a huge opportunity here to extend their lead before the break.
    36''
  • Terrific counter-attacking rugby from the Bulls has Tom English scrambling back to retrieve the ball and the Rebels' outside-centre has little option but to seek the safety of touch.
    36''
  • Adriaan Strauss comes up with the intercept and the Bulls are away, penetrating deep inside Rebels' territory.
    33''
  • Penalty to the Rebels!  The scrum wheels through the full 90 degrees and the referee's arm goes up on the visitors' side.
    31''
  • Some bad news on the injury front for the Rebels with Dane Haylett-Petty, after receiving treatment on the far side of the field, trudging slowly from the pitch with what appears to be a left shoulder injury.
    30''
  • Under pressure at the back of the scrum, the box kick from Michael Ruru is good finding touch just short of half way to relieve some pressure on the home side.
    28''
  • A terrific set piece play from the line out opens up the Rebels' defensive line however the opportunity is lost with Roelof Smit leaving the ball behind.
    27''
  • Penalty to the Bulls!  The Rebels' pack disintegrates in the face of enormous pressure and the home side are rewarded with the penalty.
    26''
  • We have a break in play whilst Tetera Faulkner receives treatment for an arm injury - it's the Rebels with the scrum feed just over the half way line.
    26''
  • The Bulls are in for try number 2!  Outstanding vision from Burger Odendaal who chips the ball into the path of Jesse Kriel who gathers cleanly on his way to the try line.
    24''

    22''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOAL! Rebels (Jack Debreczeni) 7-3 Bulls
    21''
  • Penalty to the Rebels!  The home side have been penalised for hands in the ruck and so the visitors will have a chance, for the third time, to get some points on the scoreboard.
    19''
  • A terrific rolling maul from the Bulls who muscle their way all the way to their 22m line.
    17''
  • MISS! A chance for Jack Debreczeni to post the first Rebels' first points of the match however he has hooked his kick well away to the left hand side.
    16''
  • The scrum goes down and the penalty is awarded to the Rebels - Reece Hodge finds the line with his kick for touch and takes play inside attacking territory for the visitors.
    14''
  • It's the Rebels with the scrum feed but they are at the wrong end of the field, halfway between their own 10m and 22m lines.
    11''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! Bulls (Handre Pollard) 7-0 Bulls
    8''
  • The Bulls are in for the first try of the match!  The Bulls spread the ball out to the left where the Rebels are hopelessly outnumbered and it is a pinpoint pass that puts Adriaan Strauss through a gap in the line and over for the five-pointer.

    6''

    4''

    2''

    1''
