Sunwolves suffered their fourth straight Super Rugby defeat with a 30-27 loss to the Bulls.

Having taken a 7-0 lead through Andrew Durutalo's try and Tusi Pisi's conversion, the Japanese side found themselves 16-10 behind at half-time as three penalties from Tian Schoeman and a successfully converted first try of the season from Adrian Strauss put the Bulls in control.

An early second-half try from Roelef Smit - with Pisi again converting - gave the South Africans some breathing space, but Sunwolves hit back with Akihito Yamada going over to add to Pisi's earlier penalty to make it 23-20.

Jamba Ulengo's try and Schoeman's conversion gave the Bulls a 10-point lead, with a touchdown from Yuki Yatomitri, which beat the hooter, making it 30-27.
