Western Province secure bonus point win against Blue Bulls before game is called off

Western Province coach John Dobson was pleased with his team’s performance in managing to secure a bonus point win against the Blue Bulls at a wet Loftus Versfeld Saturday tonight (13 October 2018). Western Province finished the game 34-7 winners after the game was called off at the half-time interval due to lightning. With Western Province hosting the Blue Bulls in the semifinals at Newlands next weekend, Dobson believes they have sent through a message to their opponent of how daunting a task it will be in Cape Town. At the same time Dobson says it won’t be a walkover for them in winning the semifinal.
