Super 14 Final 2010 Winners Vodacom Bulls

The last ever Super 14 tournament culminated in an all South African Final with the Vodacom Bulls beating the Vodacom Stormers 25-17 at Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

In the run up to the final, both teams had definitely illustrated that they were deserving of the top two spots, the Bulls leading the table with the most points by some distance, and the Stormers conceding only 17 tries before the play off matches, with the closes contenders being Crusaders on 24 tries.

The Bulls had form having won the only other all SA final in 2007 against the Sharks, and then beating the Hamilton-based Chiefs from New Zealand in 2009 with an identical scoreline to their 2nd consecutive Super 14 win this year.

Right from the outset, fly half Morne Steyn took the bull by the horns so to speak with three penalties in the first quarter to take the Vodacom Bulls into the lead 9-0. By half time, the Bulls charged further ahead thanks to Francois Hougaard’s try which of course Steyn slotted over for the full seven points.

The Stormers weren’t without opportunity, and looked to have scored the first try as captain Schalk Burger put the ball over the line, but the TMO ruled he had played the ball on the ground and was thus denied first blood.

The only first half consolation for the Stormers was a penalty from Peter Grant, which took the finalists into halftime with a 16-3 scoreline and the Bulls firmly in control.

The second half started off more positively for the Capetonians with the electrifying Bryan Habana intercepting Steyn’s pass to score under the posts – easy pickings this time for Grant as the gap closed to 16-10 fifteen minutes in, having missed a penalty already.

But the momentum was short-lived as Steyn punished the Stormers at every given opportunity with another three penalties taking the score up to 25-10 and only four minutes left on the clock.

You can’t win a game if you don’t have possession…the formula worked perfectly for the Bulls.

A moment of complacency from the Bulls allowed replacement scrum half Ricky Januarie to slip through the defensive line to score a try that looked dubiously short but was awarded nevertheless; Grant converted the penalty in the last minute, but unfortunately for the Stormers it was too little too late.
