It is clear from the incident that White is learning from Erasmus about strategies that can be used to help in attack.   In this case the Bulls used the same strategy Erasmus introduced in the world cup final at minute 55 - ie the forming of a driving maul by the forwards in the middle of the field -  which in the WC resulted in a penalty converted by Pollard which put the Springboks 18-9 ahead in the test.   


If he keeps following the example of the brilliant Erasmus he may yet becomes  a better coach than he was thus far in his career,

Squidge (the video analyst on Youtube) analysis of the WC final showed an example of the Bulls using that move in 2018 or 2019. He said that Rassie either took the move from them, or perhaps suggested they try the move during Super rugby

The Bulls never used that move.   The analyst referred  to a similar move by a European Club side  and the move was used in a game where Munster played Gloucester  in the Heineken Cup to ensure Munster going through to the play-offs in the Heineken Cup in 2017 when Erasmus was coaching Munster.   It was never used by any other SA team before and never used on test l;evel by any team.

Having clarified that - did you notice that Morne missed an easy penalty jucj at goal in the fional minutes of the game which would have ensured  a draw instead of a loss by the Bulls?

Sigh. Minute 21:08. The Bulls.

Since when did the Bulls wear s blue and white striped jersey in games?   Have never seen them in that type of jersey ever,    That was definitely another team - not the Bulls and the example was used by Rassie in 2017  at Munster so that move was used before that on club level - but definitely not by the Bulls in 2018.    He did mention the team that used it - but the Bulls was definitely not the  team he showed in the clip.   And the fact is the clip was made long before 2017 when Rassie used it at Munster.   The clip showed three users of the move - the initial team who used it - Munster and then the Springboks,    If indeed it was the Bulls before they introduced the Blue Bulls jersey in the 1950'd and there is no SA or NZ or Aussie teams that uses the jersey of the opposition.  Try again - you are talking KAK again.

How can you not recognize Duane Vermeulen and RG Snyman in that clip? How can you not hear Squidge saying "In this year's Super Rugby season The Bulls ran what is now a very familiar move..."?

And here is the jersey they're wearing.

And here, at minute 1:34 of the highlight reel of the BULLS vs Lions in the 2019 Super Rugby, is the try Squidge discusses in the clip. You're on form tonight ou Mike.

No it was definitely not the Bulls,   He showed the move in the lip where it allegedly was used before the Munster game where Erasmus used it when he was coaching Munster/   T{om amye vent the example was not the Bulls and the Lions - the jerseys are different,

Well you see Mike, there is your Secret Alternate Rugby Universe, and then there is the Real World. Please warn me when you enter the former so that I don't waste my time trying to tell you what happened in the latter.

Dec 18, 2020, 21:44

Well I may be wrong about the game of the Bulls - but that move was first used in 2017 by Erasmus when he coached Munster and he showed it at length on the clip,   If used by the Bulls the advice came from Erasmus anyway,
