Blues 39 vs Brumbies 34 We kicked off round 6 with the Brumbies taking on the Blues in Auckland. The Blues secured a 3rd win for the season, leaving the Brumbies with a lot to think about. A great combination between Joe Rokocoko and Stephen Brett provided a brilliant try, leaving Matt Giteau with a headache as his kicking boot just couldn’t do the job for the Brumbies. The Blues did it in style picking up 4 tries and a bonus point to seal the deal. Bulls 19 vs Hurricanes 18 The Hurricanes traveled to Pretoria to face off with the mighty Bulls. Okay Victor played his 100th Super rugby match, but I don’t think he ever imagined it to be so intense. The Bulls trailed for most of the match against the Canes who stepped it up and brought a serious game of rugby to Loftus. The Canes had the upper hand with a 12-0 lead in the 1st 20 min and placed the Bulls under extreme pressure throughout the game. With the home crowed sitting on the edge on their seats Morne managed to put the Bulls into the lead with 15 min left on the clock. It surely was a breathtaking game!!! Crusaders 46 vs Lions 19 In Cristchurch the Crusaders welcomed the Lions. Still no win for the Lions but definitely a better game of rugby. Of course the Crusaders had home advantage scoring five tries and securing the bonus point. The Lions had a great start taking the lead, until the Crusaders got angry and ripped out that true NZ style of rugby, providing the home crowed with a celebration. Sharks 30 vs Highlanders 16 The Sharks took on the Highlanders in Dunedin. Finally the Sharks came round to pick up their 1st victory this season. It took them a long time though, but some magic happened in Sharkie land with even Stefen Terblanche scoring a try!! They outscored the Highlanders with 3 tries to 1 and managed to hang in there. The Highlanders also only secured 1 victory this season, so lets see what they can come up with next weekend. Waratahs 14 vs Force 10 In Perth the Waratahs got it on with the Force. Yay the Force managed to pick up ...
