S14 Game 74, Hurricanes (38) vs. Lions (12) (F/T)


Written by Andre Bosch (KSA Shark ©)

Tagged with :

The Hurricanes will hope to move up to at least 2nd position on the log courtesy of a good win over the Lions this morning.

The Hurricanes already have a better points difference than current 2nd placed team the Waratahs. Any 5 point win will see them move into 2nd spot and hoping for a Waratahs defeat at the hands of the Bulls this afternoon.

Will the Hurricanes do what is needed?

Or will the Lions surprise us all and walk away with the spoils?

Kick-off in Wellington at 09:35 SA time.

    Van Niekerk is caught in possession right on his line. Hore rips the ball from the no. 8 and scores the try.

  • Lions Try

    The Lions eventually get a set-piece inside the Canes 22 right. They launch a maul from a 5-metre lineout and Wepener scores the try.

  • Ripia chips over the Lions defence and regathers ahead of Rose. He finds Masoe who offloads to Nonu. The big centre makes it to the corner to score.

    Hurricanes 26 – 7 Lions

    I’m so tired of always relying on the other teams to do us favours. Sharks chose a difficult road although they played better yesterday.

    You are right. Hopefully Loffie tuned them at half-time. “Only 40 minutes and then we can go home guys.”

  • Obviously the Lions have other ideas. OR Loffie spoke to them

    TRY LIONS
    Vermaak breaks from behind a 5-metre scrum and pops a delicate little inside pass onto which Boshoff bursts. The wing is over for the try.

    Commentators confirm that benjamin is the number 1 in the S14 for handling errors.

    From leading try scorers in the CC to worst handler in the S14

    The Canes muscle the ball right up to the Lions line, but the forwards can’t make it over. Nonu comes up to the ruck, picks up and stretches over for his second and the bonus point.

    An as much as I would love the LIONS to do that so we have at least something to talk of this season and share in the Sharks possible further success…but that will be very very wishful!?!?

    I made a mistake in #76.

    If the Force and Brumbies win(without a BP) we might be 4th still. The Chiefs are only 7PD ahead of us at the moment.

    If they lose by more than 7 without a BP try then we will still be 4th. :cool: :roll: GO FORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 94.15% of all players in SuperBru correctly predicted a win by the Hurricanes.

    What were the other 5,85% thinking? :wink:

  • Missed tackles, loose passes, pathetic. Seen more penetration from an impotent geriatric.
