Super Rugby Round 11 WRap


Super Rugby Round 11 WRap
4.26-4.27: By the Numbers

home wins @ Crusaders, Hurricanes, Jaguares, Stormers
 road wins by Highlanders, Sharks

In the cage match that is the South African Conference, all XVs are within a win of one another, while numbers one and two from the Land of the Long White Cloud Set are well far and away from the remaining baker’s dozen of clubs in the overall standings; everybody’s competitive in the Australian Conference save for the basement dwellers, pretty much.

11           for Crusaders 10, Richie Mo’unga, on 4-and-1 alongside doubles by the home side flyers, Sevu Reece (22 yrs and Mistah Freal Bomb-astic!) and George Bridge, who grounded his brace inside a 2-minute interval, and the reigning Super Champions picked up right where they left off last season’s title match in throttling Lions at the AMI, 36-10;

            point for every week in numerical tribute to the year as Highlanders road show ran riot at Chichibu, 52-0, over SunWolves; 15 for visitors 10, Josh Ioane, on 5 conversions and 1 try, 1 double for 11, Tevita Li, and 8-try ‘Landers have slipped into a playoff spot for now;

2             groundings for home team’s 15, Jordie Barrett, each converted by brother Beau, and Hurricanes were ahead of Chiefs 14-nil inside of 10 minutes; Chiefs allowed a third converted before scoring twice, but ‘Canes got another to lead, 28-12 at the half; hosts outscored their guests by 12 in the second stanza to record 47-19, five-point victory; 12, too, for 10, B Barrett, on half dozen converted;

13           for road Sharks 10, Curwin Bosch, on 2-and-3 off the tee and the Boys from Natal made a 10-10 halftime draw 23-15 victory in Sydney, denying their hosts, Waratahs, a losing bonus-point in the process;

1             converted score in extra time left traveling Bulls 1 point shy of Stormers at Newlands, 23-24; 13 for Los Toros 10, Handre Pollard, on 2-and-3 off the tee;

2             points the difference at the half for Jaguares, 17-15, and Brumbies a no-show on the board in the second stanza, while homeys got a sticksplitter and 20-15 the result for the South Americans from the South African Conference, wot?

Blues, Rebels, Reds on the bye
