Bulls 39-30 Sharks
The Bulls came out top in a feisty South African derby at Loftus on Saturday. The win reignited the Bulls’ playoff aspirations in 2018, scoring five tries to three from their visitors.

It was an epic encounter from both teams. The Bulls took a 22-17 lead into half-time, and held on when things got tough.

And, just to give context to the action – there were three yellow cards in the match.

The Shark lost two players – Curwin Bosch and Lukhanyo Am – while the Bulls lost RG Snyman to a yellow too.

Stormers 9-15 Chiefs
It wasn’t exactly the most memorable match in terms of execution and quality – and fans had to wait until the second half for much of the action – but the Stormers’ unbeaten record on home turf is over after the Chiefs outmuscled them in a feisty clash at Newlands on Saturday afternoon.

The Chiefs’ points came from a try from Anton Lienert-Brown and a penalty try. While Damian McKenzie added the rest of the points through a kicked penalty. The Stormers, meanwhile, got all their points through the kicking boots of Damian Willemse and SP Marais.

Highlanders 39-27 Lions
The Lions kept biting but it wasn’t enough as the Highlanders outscored the visitors five tries to four at the Forsyth Barr Stadium on Saturday.

Lima Sopoaga opened the scoring for the New Zealanders and Harold Vorster replied just before the break taking the score to 19-10.

The second half was a much tighter affair with the Lions able to mount a fightback with two Robbie Coetzee tries within eight minutes. But the Highlanders had all the answers despite another late effort by Marnus Schoeman in the 72nd minute.

It’s been a miserable tour for the Lions since thrashing the Waratahs in the first game Down Under. They’ve now suffered three defeats with losses to the Reds, Hurricanes and now the Highlanders.
