Bulls motivated ahead of semi-final
Bulls captain Dewald Potgieter says his side has what it takes to beat the Sharks at home.
JOHANNESBURG - Bulls captain Dewald Potgieter on Thursday said his side needs to be at its best when they face the Sharks in Saturday's Currie Cup semi-final in Durban.
He believes his team's patchy form early in the competition will count for very little after kick-off.
The Bulls struggled throughout the season before turning things around to make the semi-finals.
Potgieter said his side played well to beat the Lions and advance last week, but it is time for them to improve greatly.
"We need to be at our best and that's the only way to win in Durban. We have to do much better than we were last week."
Potgieter says even though they had a disastrous season, they always believed that they could make the play-offs.
"It was always within us, even when we were struggling. We just need to remain motivated."
Kickoff is 4:30pm.
In the other semi-final clash, Western Province will take on the Lions in Johannesburg.
