BULLS Crowned SA U19 Rugby Champions 2019
Congratulations to the Blue Bulls Rugby Union on collecting the title SOUTH AFRICAN U19 RUGBY CHAMPIONS on Saturday in Cape Town!
The Pretoria boys overpowered the Western Province Rugby u19’s with the score on BULLS 32 vs 24 WP when Referee Mr Quinton Immelman blew the final whistle at the City Park Stadium in Athlone, Cape Town on Saturday.
The Bulls quickly took the lead up to 14-0, but WP answered with three quick back-to-back tries to steal the half-time lead of 17-14!
The Bulls scored two more tries to the one of WP in the second half and kicked two vitally successful penalty goals, to bag the 32-24 victory.
The Bulls have gone from Zero to Hero in only a few months since the New President of the Union Mr Willem Strauss took charge of beloved Pretoria Brand.
What a Brilliant away winning final.
It’s our first u/19 title in 6 years and the first time in a decade we won the National u/19 and u/21 titles in the same season.
Congratulations to Hayden and team. – Willem Strauss
