Gurthro Steenkamp's contender for hit of the year

Gurthro Steenkamp's contender for hit of the year

The Blue Bulls smashed the Boland Kavaliers 69-19 at Loftus Versfeld on Friday evening in a Currie Cup match that was jam packed with action, featuring tries a plenty, but not without the odd huge hit to rub salt into the wounds.

The half time score sat at 38-0, and by the 55th minute the home team had notched up 11 tries, prompting them to take their foot off the gas slightly, allowing the Kavaliers to run in three consolation tries of their own.

The physical nature of the Bulls, combined with the passionate (sometimes hostile) crowd, make Loftus Versfeld a very difficult place for any team to visit. That intimidation factor, combined with a pack of gorilla's waiting to rip your head off, means that smaller unions like Boland are normally on a hiding to nothing when playing away in Pretoria.

This hit by burly Springbok and Bulls prop Gurthro Steenkamp is no doubt a contender for hit of the season, as he absolutely laid into Kavalier replacement Cecil Kemp.

I don't need to say much more about it. Just watch the vid.
