The penultimate round of the 2010 Super 14 begins with a match between two teams in the semi final race and pushing hard to make the cut. The match in Wellington pits the perennial semifinalists, the Hurricanes against one of the surprise packages of 2010 and almost definitely the candidate for most improved franchise, the Reds. Both teams are pretty desperate for a win as their playoff chances hang on the slimmest of threads. The ‘Canes come off a narrow and lucky win over the Chiefs while the Reds were outclassed by their nemesis, the Brumbies in a result which left their playoff hopes in tatters. This has the makings of a cracker and it’s matches like this which make the last few rounds of Super 14 action so exciting!

  • Where is Daniel braid? Have the Reds thrown a hissy fit because he has signed for the Blues or is he injured.

  • Anyone watch the T20 game last night. Gibbs can catch a ball. I wonder if the chokers of cricket can finally win a world cup. the chokers of rugby failed again.

    isn’t this adolf’s department. imagine being a player getting jerked around like this. players and staff don’t get any news of what goes on, so they get their hopes up then find it is all hot air. wasn’t aj treated like this and albert. makes you want to support the bulls. :evil: imagine how plum must be thinking over his 3 year contract that according to bvz hasn’t been signed.

    The good news for him is that if PDivvy really wants him back in SA then he will pull the right strings – that is a seperrate issue and has nothing to do with the Sharks.

  • They are currently 4th on the same points as Reds (34) but have a better PD than the Reds.

    Reds PD 56
    Saders PD 80

    A loss by 24 or more drops them to fifth

    GO BULLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (ouch that hurts)

    I dunno, I’m scared of the reds but less so against the Saders.
    Thats probably going to be Bulls’ problem though – Stormers will probably end up playing the Canes in Slaapstad.

    And thankfully either the saders or the bulls still need to lose.

    Saders will lose this weekend,

    Stormers I’m not to sure about yet. :wink:

    Brumbies and Waratahs can both still go 3rd on the log if they win this weekend shifting the other guys down.

    The Brumbies are playing the highlanders so I expect 5 from them which will send them 3rd. (How important was that win over the reds last weekend?)

    Waratahs are playing the Chiefs so their win is NOT so assured.

  • Wins for the tahs and the Brumbies WITH BPs will make the log look like this. (presuming the Stormers and Bulls win with BPs as well)

    1. Bulls 48
    2. Stormers 43
    3. Waratahs 38
    4. Brumbies 37 (ALREADY ahead of Canes on PD. A BP win will place them above)
    5. Hurricanes 37
    6. Crusaders 34
    7. Reds 34

    Crusaders Brumbies next weekend will be an ALMIGHTY battle

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 77) :

    :shock: And the Waratahs are hosting the Canes next weekend.

    So of the potential top 6 teams next weekend there are no spoiling oppertunities for any non semi teams.

    Stormers / Bulls 2 v 1
    Waratahs / Hurricanes 3 v 5
    Crusaders / Brumbies 6 v 4

    We could be set for one of the most exciting finishes in a looooong time.
