Japan’s Sunwolves notched up another milestone on their Super Rugby journey when they edged the three-times champion Bulls 21-20 on Saturday to claim their first South African victim in their second season in the competition.
The victory, their first of the season.
The Pretoria-based Bulls could still have snatched the win but replacement back Francois Brummer missed the target with a late penalty and the Sunwolves held on to the delight of a noisy crowd at the Prince Chichibu Memorial Stadium.
SARU has downgraded the Bulls rugby to junk status. #SSRugby

Eish blue bulls got a hiding. Not a great a start at all.
