Bulls take the Super Rugby 'route'
INTERVIEW: The Blue Bulls is set to adopt their Super Rugby style, when they face Western Province in their Currie Cup opener at Loftus Versfeld on Friday.
Bulls coach Nollis Marais hopes his forwards can adapt to the style of play, which the side showed glimpses of in the Super Rugby tournament.
"I think it's all a matter of time for us to manifest that Super Rugby specialness in the Currie Cup," Marais said.
"It's important for the forwards and backs to be on the same page in terms of the objectives of what we want to achieve.
"Obviously it's a team sport and we need one another to make sure that the job gets done."
Marais said he is expecting good attacking play from the Cape Town side.
"Western Province is a good side," Marais said, adding: "I just read what Dobbo [Western Province coach John Dobson] said, so I see he is busy [plotting the Bulls' downfall], but I don't worry too much.
"It's time to be quiet and play on Friday.
"We know what is expected from us, we know we have to pitch up.
"I know what games Dobbo plays and for us it's just time to play."
