Bonus point Bulls earn back to back Force victories

Jan Serfontein scored two tries for the Bulls

The Bulls have kicked off their Super Rugby tour of Australia with a 20-42 Bonus Point victory over the Western Force in Perth.

The Bulls beat the Force in Pretoria last year so the result earns them back to back wins over the Perth side for the second time in their history.

The victory ends a six match losing streak in Australia for the Bulls and also extends their winning run this season to five consecutive wins.

The Bulls outscored the Force by five tries to two in the 22 point victory which earns them their second try bonus point this season.

Jan Serfontein and Bulls captain Adriaan Strauss both scored two tries each in the match.

Next week the Bulls travel to Canberra to play the Brumbies and the Force fly to Tokyo as they take on the Sunwolves.
