Pretoria - The Vodacom Bulls are wary of another "sucker punch" when they head to Newlands to face the DHL Stormers in their opening Vodacom Super Rugby clash this weekend.

In what has become a trend in the past few years, the Bulls dominate possession and territory for large periods of time, but struggle to overcome the Cape side's defensive system, and eventually fall to breakaway tries scored near the end of the game.

This is the scenario that played out between the two provincial versions of these teams in the Absa Currie Cup last year and in Super Rugby a number of times before that.
