Blue Bulls coach Frans Ludeke said his side's poor finishing was the main reason behind their second straight Currie Cup defeat.

Blue Bulls coach Frans Ludeke said his side's poor finishing was the main reason behind their second successive defeat of the Currie Cup season.

Western Province outscored the Blue Bulls by six tries to one in Saturday's clash at Newlands to leave the Pretoria-based side empty handed after two rounds.

“Our finishing was poor and we not patient when building pressure,” said Ludeke.

“Our decision-making also let us down and when you're up against the best teams in the competition, you pay the price.”

Ludeke said he would be taking an in-depth look at the way his side was leaking points.

“I need to look at the way we are conceding points to our opponents. Some of the points against us today actually came when we were putting the opposition under pressure,” he said after the game.

“We also lost vital line-out ball when we were in potentially good attacking positions.”
