The wait is almost over for what is expected to be an intense Currie Cup battle between the Bulls and Pumas at Loftus Versfeld on Friday night.

The match will be a crucial one for the Bulls who will want to preserve a spot at the top of the log going into the crucial round robin finale against the in-form and unbeaten Cheetahs in a fortnight. The Pumas, on the other hand, will want to safeguard their reputation as giant-killers in the domestic competition.

“We will carry a bit of confidence into this game. The Lions brought a quality side and we manned up against them, and it really went well,” said Bulls loose forward, Muller Uys, ahead of the game.

“So, with that said, I think we have a lot of responsibility in terms of backing that performance up against the Pumas this week.”

Uys, who will earn a starting berth at No 8, indicated that they expect a huge battle upfront with the Pumas almost certain to target dominance in the set pieces.

“The Pumas are always a difficult one. They bring a massive set piece battle, and we will need to front up to that. They are always up for this game, it’s always a big one,” said the burly No 8.

“At this stage there is no easy game. The Pumas are quality side and whatever they bring, we will have to counter.

“They will bring everything they have, but also, we are going to throw everything because we are also desperate for the win. This is an almost must-win game for us to put us in a good position to get a home final and being on top of the log.

“They are going to bring everything; we will also bring it all. At the end of the day, it will be about who wants it the most. So, it’s going to be a nice battle.”

The match kicks off at 19:00 and it will be televised on SuperSport.
