The Bulls beat the Rebels 40-7 to finish the Super Rugby season with the consolation of an unbeaten home record.

A four-tries-to-one tally got the job done for the hosts, with the hapless Rebels ending the season bottom with just four wins from 16 matches - a drop of one victory from 2013.

They were in control on the night and were comprehensively outplayed, with Handre Pollard slotting two first-quarter penalties to get the home side going.

Jack Debreczeni responded with his first Super Rugby try and the same man's conversion but the Rebels in front at 7-6.

Pollard hit back with a 29th-minute penalty and then tagged another, before his side scored their first try of the night.

It came with Scott Fuglistaller in the sin bin and saw Paul Willemse dot down two minutes after the restart.

Pollard continued to find his range with the conversion and the pair then teamed up again, with Willemse scoring his second and Pollard upgrading.

Francois Hougaard added a third try out wide, with the conversion no bother to Pollard, who was then given a breather and saw Jacques-Louis Potgieter do the business after Dean Greyling scored a bonus-point fourth.
