The Bulls face the Perth based Western Force on Saturday at Loftus Versfeld Stadium looking for just their third win of what has been a very disappointing season to date. With two losses from three games played at their home stadium already, the Bulls will be less confident than normal when running out in front of their own fans.

However, the Bulls have an outstanding record against visiting Australian teams. With only the Brumbies in 2013 taking the spoils away from the home team since 2007, when the Force were successful. Last season, the Brumbies were thumped 44-23, while the Rebels were even more heavily beaten by 40-7 at Loftus. The Force started 2015 with a shock win in Sydney against the reigning Champions the Waratahs. The optimism engendered by the result has now all but evaporated, as they have since slid to four successive defeats. The Hurricanes and Rebels in Perth, the Reds in Brisbane and the Brumbies in Canberra, have all inflicted misery on the Force.

Meetings between the two teams are even, with four wins apiece over the years. While matches in Pretoria tend to produce plenty of tries between the sides, 19 in the last three meetings, last year’s contest in Perth failed to produce a single five pointer, as the home side won a dull encounter by 15-9.

Saturday, the 2nd of March, it will be the Bulls and Western Force that play in Pretoria in Super Rugby, with the game at 17:05 local time and 15:05 GMT. The Bulls currently take the fifth spot in the Super Rugby competition. They have four points right now, which is something that several other of the teams in Super Rugby share with them at the moment. For example, the Southern Kings in third place have 4 points, as do a whole slew of other teams between 5th and 10th including the Sharks, Crusaders, Rebels and Reds.
