S14 ’09 Game 54 – Highlanders (24) v Reds (19) F/T

Between them, this year, they have won less matches than there have been rounds in this year’s Super 14.

The Reds have won 2 from 7 and the Highlanders 3 from 7.

I am afraid I do not hold much hope for this to be an exciting game. Between the two of them, 9 of the 10 Super Rugby matches with the lowest ever recorded scores feature one of their names.

Will the Reds manage to be unstructured enough to unsettle the Highlanders?

Venue: Rugby Park Stadium, Invercargill
Kick-off: 17:30 Local Time, 07:30 SA Time

Referee: Craig Joubert (South Africa)
ARs: Keith Brown (New Zealand), tba

Replacements:
16 Jason Rutledge, 17 Chris King, 18 Hayden Triggs, 19 Steven Setephano, 20 Sean Romans, 21 Johnny Leota, 22 Fetu’u Vainikolo.

  • 2 Last Man Standing picks for this game.

    Ragged’s Rotters and Fig Bish have both chosen the Highlanders.

    Both have already lost a lifeline, so will be desperatly hoping to avoid elimination. :wink:

  • Truth be told, we kreepy crawlied in the line outs and the loose. Brussow and Jean was absolutely briliant. We were DEAD on our feet. Tackled backwards every time, placing everybody on the back foot. Stone me, but the Cheetahs were awesumly briliant! ;-(

  • Truth be told, we kreepy crawlied in the line outs and the breakdown points. We were DEAD on our feet. Tackled back which placed everybody on the back foot. Brussow and Jean caused major damage and dnt forget Wayne and Potgieter. Stone me, but the Tjietas were awesomely briliant :-/
