Re: The Rugby Thread

Lions 23 Sharks 21

Chiefs 17 Stormers 11

Semi Finals July 29

Crusaders vs Chiefs

Lions vs Hurricanes

My prediction for the final is Crusaders vs Hurricanes, but it will be difficult for the Hurricanes to get past the Lions in SAF. Pete :cheers:

Crusaders 17 Highlanders 0, which was also the halftime score. Crusaders into the semi-finals against whom to be determined later tonight. Terrible weather and the Highlanders only arrived in Christchurch 7 hours before kickoff as all flights cancelled out of Dunedin all day Friday. https://www.stuf...

Re: The Rugby Thread

Short off season for the two SAF sides. The commute is better though than the trip to/from NZ. The Sunwolves may face something like this in time if they don't improve. I don't know how many years Super 15 gives to new teams to reach a certain level of performance but I would imagine it must be no l...
