Assistant coach Pine Pienaar says Jake White’s vision for the Vodacom Bulls has everyone singing from the same hymn sheet.
White has used a host of the same players over the course of the Vodacom United Rugby Championship and the Currie Cup in 2022.
The Bulls director of rugby is set to capitalise on the two-week URC break and bolster Gert Smal’s match-day squads for clashes with the Griquas and Lions.
The Pretoria outfit are top of the Currie Cup standings on 32 points, one ahead of the unbeaten Free State Cheetahs.
During the buildup to Saturday’s visit by Griquas to Loftus Versfeld, Pienaar told media: “I think the vision Jake has is fantastic. I think having that synergy in the group is good.
“It is good that there is one plan – for example for defence – everyone is on the same page, then it doesn’t matter how the team looks.
“We see the Currie Cup as a very important competition to play in. We are not in the semi-finals yet [Currie Cup]. We have four games left, starting with a good challenge against Griquas.
“When we get closer to the Cheetahs game, coach Jake and coach Gert will plan what to do. At the moment, we are just looking at this weekend and our current planning.
“There will be guys resting this weekend, but there will also be some [URC] guys coming in.”
The Bulls are sixth in the URC and will face Ospreys in Wales on 20 May in the final round of the group stages.
