SUPER 14 RUGBY 2010: Week 14

Crusaders 40 beat Brumbies 22 The Triple C phenomena was in full swing. Carter had some embarrassing moments, but the Crusaders played really well and secured their spot in the Semi’s.

The Reds have done so well this year, they should be disappointed not being in the top 4. Cheetahs 59 beat Lions 10 The Lions are sooo happy this tournament is over for them. I mean honestly excuses and injuries can also go so far. They should be very worried and ashamed of their performances.
