  • Yani Klukowski then dragged a free-kick wide for the Bulls from a dangerous position.
  • Wellington also had their share of openings with the replacement trialist cutting out a low Paul Jones sizzling cross.
  • The best chance on the 29th minute when the small in stature trialist shot from outside the box just wide with the goalkeeper beaten.
  • Klukowski tested the palms of goalkeeper Kieron Blackburn again on 35 minutes with a low shot.

  • Three minutes into the second half Wellington took an unlikely lead with Brandon Hackett finding Paul Jones who fired past the goalkeeper.
  • The very young second half Bulls side which contained mainly trialists kept at the task.
