SUPER 14 RUGBY 2010: Week 4
RUGBY: SUPER 14 2010 Highlights Week 4 Reds 23 vs Chiefs 18 Kicking off the weekend the Chiefs and the Reds got it on in Hamilton. Here is a tip; NEVER underestimate the underdogs!! The Reds spoiled the homecoming party for the Chiefs ending that three week winning streak. As the famous saying goes - what goes up must come down and so did my fantasy league score. Brumbies 24 vs Lions 13 The lions went on tour to face the Brumbies, shame they still can’t get a win. I can imagine that it’s damn hard to try and win when you give away 18 penalties!!!

With that in mind it’s hard to think any team can manage to win the Crusaders at home even arch rivals the Blues couldn’t succeed. Credit to the Blues for pulling off a great game of rugby in the 1st half and preventing the bonus point. As always the Crusaders hit back hard in the 2nd half and gave the home crowd a celebration. Waratahs 25 vs Sharks 21 Oh dear the Sharks are still not getting it right. Andy Goode seems to love the sin bin, making it two in a row. Discipline seems to be a huge concern for the Sharks, but at least they did try to prove a point by picking up 2 tries. The Waratahs hit back powering over three tries and walked away with the victory. Stormers 33 vs Highlanders 0 The Stromers were ready for business at Newlands, making sure that they won’t loose two weeks in a row. They provided the fans with some classy rugby, scoring brilliant tries and picking up a bonus point. The Highlanders had to defend as if their lives depended on it, but couldn’t even manage to reach the score board. Shame!! Cheetahs 28 vs Hurricanes 12 Last game of the weekend was at Bloemfontein where the Cheetahs made sure the Hurricanes understood clearly that they were on Cheetah turf. The previously unbeaten Hurricanes scored ...
