Highlanders beat Bulls 16-11 in Super 15

Highlanders beat Bulls 16-11 in Super 15

Otago lock Jarrad Hoeata had one try disallowed but immediately scored another to lead the Highlanders to a 16-11 win over the Bulls in Super 15 rugby on Saturday, ending the South African team's brief reign atop the table.
Hoeata first crossed the goalline in the 63rd minute when the Pretoria-based Bulls were reduced to 14 men by the sin-binning of loosehead prop Dean Grayling.
The television match official ruled against the try, finding the former All Black had been brought down short of the line. But only a minute later Hoeata crashed through the defense to score an emphatic try that clinched the Highlanders' narrow victory.
