And the time has finally come. The 2009 Super 14 is here!!!!!!! Not a moment to soon either.

The Brumbies travel to Dunedin in New Zealand for the start of their 2009 campaign. New Captain Stephen Hoiles will hope to get his tenure off to a good start.

The Highlanders are also under new leadership in the guise of Jimmy Cowan, who will be hoping to put his troubles behind him and lead the team to a maiden victory in 2009.

Will the Highlanders drown in the drink? Or will the Brumbies come away with concussion?

    Naka Drotske saying this is the first year they have a sport psychologist. Something that could help them quite a bit IMO.

  • Advantage over

    Brumbies 15m out.

    New advantage and new advantage over. (This ref doesn’t believe in giving the team the benefit of a shot at goal)

    FK highlanders RIGHT under the poles and they get to relieve pressure

    Brumbies opt for Scrum in the same position as the try and the almsot try for the Brumbies.

    Highlanders early engage. FK Brumbies opt for scrum again.

    Get PK at the scrum for #1 Highlanders changing the angle on the scrum

    Brumbies going at goal.

  • two interesting half time stats

    Territory
    Brumbies 75 %
    Landers 25 %

    Time in opposition 22
    Brumbies 11min
    Highlander 1min

    That tells me the Highlanders shouldn’t be in the lead and hopefully they won’t be at the end of the game. :wink:

  • It has started raining pretty heavily in Brisbane now. Bucknor shakes his head, has an elaborate consultation with his partner. Under normal circumstances, the players would have gone off.

    Bucknor has a word with Ponting, and the batsmen, and they all walk off. This is disappointing. We’ve had a superb game and it’s really unfortunate to see it end in this manner. The captains are shaking hands in the pavilion, and New Zealand will feel hard done by. Diamanti and Guptill had added 50 for the seventh wicket, and with 33 needed off 6 overs with four wickets in hand, the batting side held a slight edge.

  • It’s pouring in Brisbane now and its highly unlikely we’ll have any more play. The match is officially called off, Australia retain the Chappell-Hadlee trophy as a result of having won it on the previous occasion.

    Just as a note of clarification, Duckworth-Lewis does not come into the picture here. Both sides need to have batted at least 20 overs for that rule to apply. New Zealand just batted 14 overs, so the match is inconclusive.

    That’s all we have from here folks. It’s a tragedy the series had to end this way. It was fun bringing you the ODI series, and do tune in to the Twenty20 match between the two teams on February 15. Just for your information, no Man of the Match has been announced for this game, but Michael Hussey has been handed the Man-of-the-Series award. Thanks for all your feedback. Adios!
