JOHANNESBURG - The Blue Bulls say they won't let history repeat itself when they take on the Brumbies in a Super Rugby semifinal on Saturday.

The last time the Bulls took on the Brumbies, Christian Lealiifano kicked a controversial injury time penalty to give his team a 23-20 win in Canberra.

Bulls captain Dewald Potgieter says they want a positive start which could give them a healthy margin on the way to victory.

"If I can plan it I'd like to not be locked at 20-all with them kicking for the posts in the last minute, so that's the only thing you can hope for."

Bulls coach Frans Ludeke says he's confident that his team has prepared well for the match.

"The whole season we've prepared for this game. This weekend is about accuracy. It's about getting into the right areas and setting up a good platform to launch an attack from."

"It's all about being patient and we believe that we've got the ability to score tries and to squeeze out points when we're in the right area."
