The 2012 and 2013 champions are still unbeaten after four fixtures and head into this clash as overwhelming favourites as they will be refreshed after they had a bye last weekend.
There was plenty of hype about the Bulls’ chances at the start of the season but the men from Pretoria are yet to make an impact and have won just once – against the Sunwolves in Round 4 – this year.
The home side are undefeated in their last three matches against the Bulls – winning two and drawing one – and will be looking to win back-to-back games against them for the first time since Round 10, 2002.
The Chiefs have also lost just one of their 10 home fixtures against the Bulls and won each of their last two.
But despite those statistics, they are not underestimating their opponents and their assistant coach Andrew Strawbridge expects a tough assignment against the three-time champions.
“The Bulls haven’t had the start they would have liked but they’re really good in a couple of areas we have struggled,” he said.
“We see this game as a real challenge.”
With the odds heavily stacked against them, Bulls captain Adriaan Strauss acknowledged that his side are not playing to their potential and feels there is plenty of room for improvement.
“We are not doing justice to ourselves, we are not achieving the targets we set and we are disappointing our supporters,” he said.
“That said, this team is certainly good enough, but talk is cheap. We need to go out and show that on the field. We could not have picked a more fitting place or opponent to do that than against the Chiefs at home, but we have to show that belief and justify the hard work done.”
