“Houston, well okay, Albany we have ignition.” The last ever season of Super 14 rugby gets underway in Albany this morning. We have been waiting with bated breath, some not bated at all actually, for this to happen. Here we go and as usual Sharksworld will be bringing you live commentary of the matches.

The Blues (9th last season) have a “home” game against the Hurricanes (3rd last season). Why teams give away home advantage to play an away “home” game to keep other smaller unions happy is still something I cannot get used to.

Will the Blues manage to secure only their 2nd win against the Hurricanes since 2004?
Or will the Hurricanes just continue on their merry way?

Superbru global picks thusfar (8pm Thursday night)
Picks for Blues 18312 (55.99%)
Picks for Hurricanes 14361 (43.91%)
Picks for draw 35 (0.11%)
This is a pretty even split actually, what else could we expect at the start of the season though.

Ref: Stuart Dickinson (Australia)
ARs: Bryce Lawrence (New Zealand), Garratt Williamson (New Zealand)
TMO: Ben Skeen (New Zealand)
Venue: North Harbour Stadium, Albany
Kick-off: 08:35 SA Time (06.35 GMT)

Blues: 15 Rudi Wulf, 14 Rene Ranger, 13 Isaia Toeava, 12 Benson Stanley, 11 Joe Rokocoko, 10 Stephen Brett, 9 Alby Mathewson, 8 Viliami Ma’afu, 7 Serge Lilo, 6 Jerome Kaino, 5 Anthony Boric, 4 Kurtis Haiu, 3 John Afoa, 2 Keven Mealamu (captain), 1 Tony Woodcock.
Replacements: 16 Tom McCartney, 17 Charlie Faumuina, 18 Filo Paulo, 19 Peter Saili, 20 Chris Smylie, 21 Daniel Kirkpatrick, 22 Paul Williams.

Hurricanes: 15 Cory Jane, 14 Tamati Ellison, 13 Conrad Smith, 12 Ma’a Nonu, 11 Hosea Gear, 10 Willie Ripia, 9 Piri Weepu, 8 Victor Vito, 7 Scott Waldrom, 6 Nick Crosswell, 5 Jason Eaton, 4 Michael Paterson, 3 Neemia Tialata, 2 Andrew Hore (captain), 1 John Schwalger.

  • that blues backline can score against any team! But their achilles heel is defence. This has potential to be a high scoring game.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 42) :

    took him out of my squad last night. :sad:

    try came after a quick take PK by the Blues after the Canes were PKd for the tackler not releasing. This must be a worry for Gary Gold he posted a blog video a few days ago about the new law not affecting Brussouw becasue of the way he tackles and then plays the ball in one sort of movement. Well that is what happened here and the canes got nailed.

    I forsee serious probs for our loosies with the new law surrounding the breakdown.
    uy like Brussow won’t be that effective as his strength was the immediate contest of the ball.

    Just join the SB pool for either the S14, 6N or Varsity cup and then search for Sharksworld. The pool captain Rob or me will then approve you. you can make picks even before you are approved. So if you get in now you will only have missed this game’s pick
