FLY half Morne Steyn got the Bulls off to a positive start when he kicked his team to an 18-13 Super Rugby victory over the Sharks at Loftus Versfeld on Friday.
The first points of the encounter were only scored in the 43rd minute after a mistake-laden first half.
To add insult to injury, neither of the two teams' goal kickers found the target with five shots at goal being pulled to the right.
The Bulls made a comedy of handling errors, making 11 mistakes with the ball in hand in the first stanza.
The Sharks on the other hand found themselves on the wrong side of referee Jonathan Kaplan's whistle because of undisciplined play.
The hosts had a few opportunities on attack but their ball handling got the better of them.
