Bulls win tour opener in Perth

Fiji Sun - - Sports -

Perth: The Bulls got their over­seas tour off to a fine start af­ter claim­ing a 42-20 bonus-point win over the Western Force in Perth on Fri­day.

In a su­perb all-round dis­play the three-time cham­pi­ons were dom­i­nant in most facets of play and outscored their hosts five tries to two with Jan Ser­fontein and Adri­aan Strauss lead­ing the charge by cross­ing for a brace apiece.

The Force were play­ing catch-up from the early part of the first half and like their de­feat against the Waratahs last week­end, they gave a good ac­count of them­selves dur­ing the open­ing pe­riod but faded badly in the sec­ond half which they lost 24-7. The re­sult moves the Bulls pro­vi­sion­ally into top spot on the Africa One Con­fer­ence ta­ble along­side the Storm­ers, who take on the Waratahs in Cape Town to­day.
