The Hurricanes travel to Brisbane to take on the Reds in a must win match for the Hurricanes.

Like most of the matches this weekend, the outcome holds the future of the SA sides in this season’s competition in the balance. A Hurricanes win will see the Sharks being able to finish no better than 4th and will see the Bulls require a win to get a home semi-final. 

For the Hurricanes a possible 2nd place finish could be achieved with a win, provided the Bulls lose in the final game of the round.

The Reds can only go 12th if they overcome a 93 points difference over the Stormers and earn themselves a bonus point. So essentially there is only pride to play for in 13th place where they will stay regardless of the result.

Venue: Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane
Kick-off: 19:40 Local time, 11:40 SA time

  • Oh there is another permutation. If Canes lose but get two BP then log could finish

    Bulls
    Canes

    Yes but you can’t talk about me and call me KAS. That is different to KSA.

    You said Weepoo went off when in fact Weepu went off. So you sent the wrong guy off. :wink:

  • If the Force beat the Highlanders and deny them a bonus point then the LIONS end 10th (depending the Cheetahs beat the Stormers)…which I think will be the case…

  • @robdylan (Comment 50) :

    How did you work that out?
    Only if the Sharks win by scoring 5 try’s they go to 4th…
    The ONLY team you can play in the semi’s is the Chiefs….cozz the only place you can get is 4th…

  • We beat the Chiefs in Hamilton alredy this season, I don’t think it’s impossible. The Bulls will play the Hurricanes, a massively physical game and the Sharks play the final in Wellington, AND WE WIN.

    Easy peasy!

    LoL

    Well I hope your front row pitches up as they were destroyed the last 3 games….

    And I hope Adi learned how to pass…cozz he has been very poor from the game before the Cheetahs with his passes….4/6/4 incomplete passes in 3 games in a row…..

    Then you have fixed A LOT in your side which might just be the difference for you guys….

  • @Hmmm (Comment 53) :

    The last 3 games?????????????????

    Were you passed out when, the exact same front row we are starting with today destroyed the Highlanders pack two weeks ago?

    That is NOT the FR we started with last weekend, but the one we WILL be starting with this weekend.
