  • Add to What an action packed weekend to kick off the super 14 season for 2010. I can’t get my head around the fact that the lights went out in the 55th minute in Bloemfontein and then the match officials could only manage to get some of the lights back on. I could hardly see what was going on, on my TV!!!! Bulls & Cheetahs: The Bulls couldn’t ask for a better way to start the season with six tries, a bonus point and Morne Steyn reaching 500 points in Super Rugby.. The Cheetahs were left in the dark... Stormers & Lions: The Stormers made a good buy with Jaque Fourie scoring his 1st try in WP colors & Habanna created a super try, sending Joe Pietersen over in the 1st half, King Carlos left the being replaced by Michael Killian who scored the only try for the lions. Sharks & Chiefs: Despite two yellow cards, the Sharks thought they were in control of the points table and then suddenly a knock on in the 79th minute cost them victory. The late penalty from Stephen Donald sealed a victory for the Chiefs. Reds & Waratahs: The Waratahs snatched a victory from the Reds in the final minute, I think that had luck on their side, that drop goal from Berrick Barnes was pure luck Crusaders & Highlanders: Dan Carter made sure his presence was felt at Christchurch steering the Crusaders to victory. Western Force & Brumbies: The Brumbies scored all the tries in the game and the poor W’Force has to rely on the boot of O’Connor, but the attention was on Stirling Mortlock who became the 1st player to reach a 1000 points in Super Rugby. Blues & Hurricanes: The blues are making excuses already... Apparently they are struggling with the new interpretations of the laws... Well maybe next time they should focus on their opponents instead Ass of the week: Oh no... The men in black down in Durban will have to work on some discipline, one would think Springbok Captain John Smit and powerhouse Bismark Du Plessis would prefer to stay on the pitch than having a 10min time out in the sin bin...
