Western Force's miserable Super Rugby season continued as they were crushed 42-20 by South African challengers the Bulls in Perth.

The Force slumped to an eighth defeat from nine starts, with the Bulls powering home through try doubles by centre Jan Serfontein and hooker Adriaan Strauss, with number eight Hanro Liebenberg also touching down in a bonus-point success.

Francois Brummer kicked 17 points for the visitors, while outclassed Western Force could only muster Matt Hodgson and Kyle Godwin tries in reply, with Ian Prior converting both and landing two penalties.
