Saturday's loss is the Pretoria-based franchise tenth defeat in 14 games this season and their fourth defeat at Loftus Versfeld this season.
Loftus Versfeld was traditionally considered a fortress in the previous season has become a place of doom and gloom for the three-time Super Rugby champions under the guidance of head coach Nollis Marais.
Luckily for the Loftus faithful, the mentor acknowledges that his side struggled throughout their 2017 Super Rugby campaign and accept that they really have to work hard to regain that prominent status.
"We had big plans at the beginning of the season and it doesn’t matter what I’m going to say now, it will be turned in whichever way you want it to be turned, but obviously disappointed. We have disappointed the fans and it is just unacceptable to lose at Loftus," Marais told reporters after the match.
"It’s not like we take a loss and just move onto the next game. Personally, I take it very hard, it’s never what we planned at the beginning of the season," he added.
With John Mitchell's appointment as 'Executive of Rugby' at the Bulls in May and his formal introduction at the helm on July 16, this weekend's match against Stormers could be Marais' last one as Bulls Super Rugby coach at Loftus.
However, the coach was very reluctant to disclose his future involvement as head coach of the Super Rugby side.
"It is not about me, it is all about the team. If I'm going to be involved in Super Rugby next season - that is not my decision - that is John's decision.
"The only thing I can do is make sure they ready for the weekend's game [against the Stormers], get all the info, train properly and it’s a normal week," Marais explained.
Meanwhile, captain and hooker Adriaan Strauss added that his team owe it to their supporters to finish a disappointing on a high note at Loftus.
"We will be up for it next weekend.
"The excitement will be there, the work rate throughout the week will definitely be there and we know what’s coming.
"It’s going to be a massive game, Stormers also very physical just like the Kings as well and good all around, so it’s going to be a big game for us. The loss does hurt, so we will pick ourselves up on Monday," Strauss commented.
