It was a frustrating Saturday afternoon for the Harvey Bulls, who went down 13.18 (96) to 9.9 (63) against South Bunbury at Hands Oval.

Bulls coach Mark Pink had no shortage of concerns prior to the clash, with a host of players unavailable for selection — predominantly through injury.

This resulted in several colts players being promoted to the league side. While aware of the challenge, Pink was hopeful his men would still remain competitive.

A nine-goal first half from the Tigers laid the foundations for their 33-point victory, with South Bunbury superboot Leigh Kohlmann finishing with six goals.

As always, Bulls full-forward Brad Holmes battled hard, booting four goals, while Aaron Jovanovic also never stopped trying.
