    SUPER-RUGBY 2011 WEEK 3 http://ruggachick.com/ SUPER-RUGBY 2011 WEEK 3 http://twitter.com/RuggaChick My Match Report: Despite an emotional time for the Crusaders, they came out to play their hearts out against the Tahs. The Thas brought their A game, but the Crusaders were fired up and like the Sydney morning described “The Players did their bit to lift heavy hearts” Then in South Africa the Lions looked convincing against the Blues, but yet again failed to finish and suffered their 3rd straight loss. Another heart break for the Ellis Park fans. In Hamilton the Chiefs were ready to set the record straight, when they smashed the Rebels. The Chiefs outscored the newcomers 4 tries to 1, snatched a bonus point and are back to winning ways... As for the Rebels it’s a bit of a "rollocoster" ride... In Canberra the Brumbies were in for a surprise... The Reds ARE BACK! SuperSport.com gave “Razor-sharp” fly-half Quade Cooper a huge thumbs up for slotting through 7 penalty goals and a wobbly drop-goal The Sharks thought the Force a rugby lesson in Perth, weather the Force learn anything about tackles and good discipline remains to be seen... But the Sharkies are currently in the driving seat with that top spot on the log. In Cape Town a try-less game between the Stormers and Cheetahs provided a great kicking contest between the fly-half's... Not the greatest game, and Stormer’s coach Alistar admit the game was ugly, no excuses. Loftus Versveld was in shock when the Highlanders gave the defending Champs run for the money and proved that they are definitely serious contenders for the title this year, ending the weekends play with major upset. LOG/FIXTURES: The South African conference seems to be dominating with 3 teams in the top 5, the Highlanders on fire, can the Tahs manage to stay on top for the Australian conference in round 4?!?
