Western Force beat Bulls 15-9 in Super Rugby
PERTH, Australia (AP) — South Africa-born flyhalf Sias Ebersohn kicked five penalties from as many attempts to lift the Western Force to a 15-9 win over the Petoria-based Bulls in Super Rugby on Saturday.
Ebersohn kicked his third penalty in the 40th minute to give the Perth-based Force their first lead at 9-6 and added two more goals in the second half to clinch his team’s sixth win of the season, hoisting them to second place in the Australian conference.
The Force ended a club record five-match winning streak with last weekend’s 22-16 loss to the Melbourne Rebels but regained winning momentum Saturday with their fourth-straight win at home.
Three-time champion Bulls slumped to a fourth-straight loss on their tour to New Zealand and Australia and to their seventh-straight loss away from home.
