Blue Bulls, Province in U21 showdown
October 22, 2012
The Vodacom Blue Bulls Under-21 side dominated all during the league stages of the Absa Under-21 Provincial Championship this year, but that will count for nothing when they face DHL Western Province in the final at the neutral venue of Mr Price Kings Park in Durban on Saturday.

After suffering a shock defeat in their opening match of the season against the Border Bulldogs in East London, the Blue Bulls dominated the division and their 50-24 win over the fourth placed Toyota Free State Cheetahs U21s at Loftus in last weekend’s semi-final added to that belief.

They have scored more tries than any other team and conceded the least to end eight points ahead of their nearest competitor on the log after the league stage.

Western Province finished third on the log but managed a win in the dying seconds of their match against second placed KZN in a soaked Durban on Saturday.

In fact, Pat Howard scored in the last movement of the match to secure the dramatic 19-18 win and a return to Durban for the final.

Predicting a winner will be a tough call. The Blue Bulls won the first of their two encounters in the league by 35-23 at DHL Newlands, but lost the return fixture at Loftus Versfeld (34-29), something that could bolster the confidence of the Cape Town side.

Kick-off is at 14h00 and the match will be screened live on SuperSport1.
