S15 Qualifier – Blues vs Waratahs

The first of two Super Rugby semi-final qualifiers takes place this morning when the Blues take on the Waratahs at Eden Park, a ground where the Blues have a decent record against their Aussie counterparts.

The Blues have beaten the Waratahs in seven of the eight games they have played at Eden Park, and I have to honest, it does not look like the Waratahs will be improving on this record today. They are already without their in form scrumhalf Luke Burgess, but this will be countered by the motivation of their soon to be retiring captain Phil Waugh.

The Blues stumbled their way to a second place finish in their conference after leading for much of the season, seemingly peaking too early in the competition and picking up some cruel injuries. Recent results do indicate a return to form for the New Zealanders, who will be hoping to push through to the semi finals next weekend.

Teams

Blues: 15 Jared Payne, 14 Joe Rokocoko, 13 Benson Stanley, 12 Luke McAlister, 11 Lachie Munro, 10 Stephen Brett, 9 Alby Mathewson, 8 Peter Saili, 7 Luke Braid, 6 Jerome Kaino, 5 Ali Williams, 4 Anthony Boric, 3 John Afoa, 2 Keven Mealamu (c), 1 Charlie Faumuina.

Replacements: 16 Tom McCartney, 17 Tevita Mailau, 18 Chris Lowrey, 19 Daniel Braid, 20 Chris Smylie, 21 Winston Stanley, 22 Sherwin Stowers.

Waratahs : 15. Lachie Turner , 14. Atieli Pakalani , 13. Ryan Cross , 12. Tom Carter , 11. Sosene Anesi , 10. Kurtley Beale , 9. Josh Holmes , 8. Dave Dennis , 7. Phil Waugh [c] , 6. Dean Mumm , 5. Sitaleki Timani , 4. Kane Douglas , 3. Paddy Ryan , 2. John Ulugia , 1. Benn Robinson ,

  • Ok guys I need help. My bro got a knock from rugby on his head. He is fine and the doc says it was however close. Now my mom wants him to stop playing. I need some facts, figures, arguments. The poor bugger lives for the sport.

  • @Mocho (Comment 1) : Not sure of the exact numbers but tell your mom that if you compare the number of players to the number of injuries it is a minuscule ammount of injuries

    Also how long has your brother been playing and only now he gets a knock. Again the probability of injury is low.

    Make him promise to wear headgear and tell her he’ll be fine.

  • @Mocho (Comment 1) : What do you mean “close”? That sounds serious? If it is, perhaps your mom is not overreacting.?

  • I’m not sure whether the Tahs can do this but I’m in two minds whether I’d want them to.

    Tahs won’t beat the Stormers, Blues probably won’t either but the Blues will give them a tougher game.

    Why is that of any concern? Well on the off chance that we do make the final, I’d prefer the Stormers to be tired. :smile:

    Go Blues!!

  • @Mocho (Comment 1) : Thanks :) yeah its his first injury like in 10years. He plays as a loose forward and hates wearing a scrum cap.

    @ Ice: He has a bloodcloth on his head.

  • @Mocho (Comment 1) : Concussion is extremely serious (my real job talking here) and you must get medical advice. Each concussion is different and people recover at different speeds. It effects people differently as well. So seek medical advice, the head is too important to guess.

  • @bergshark (Comment 13) : @RuckinGoodStats (Comment 11) : @KSA Shark © (Comment 10) :

    He went to the doctor. They quite surprised he never get a concussion. The bloodcloth is on the side of the head, and not in affecting his brain so to speak. Now his going for an ultra-scan or something like that. I always tell him to wear a scrum cap. Luckily the season is over. Its scary for my mom, but I just think that none of this would have happened if he wore a scrum cap. Although I remember once that some gave a lecture when I was at school saying that scrum caps don’t protect you from concussions, infact it makes you play more ‘recklessly’. Don’t know how true that is.

  • Scrum cap only stop cuts and low grade bruises. It will not stop a concussion. there is no evidence that states a scrum cap can stop concussion.

  • If the Sharks and Blues win this weekend, then the Sharks and Blues win again next weekend, then we’ll play the Blues (who had to travel twice in 2 weeks) in the final.

  • @Mocho (Comment 17) : buddy its no use asking for medical info here,best thing for now since the season is over is make sure ur bro is okay nd keep him away from contact rugby till next year,that should ease your moms worries,and than next year sit down with your mom,your doctor and brother and take it from there,moms never stop worrying scrum cap or not,but if your brother promises to be responsible your mom will give in as she knows she can’t really stop him from playing rugby

    Can I make a suggestion to reduce the text for you? Well I’m going to anyway. :wink:

    Rather than saying (1=most/highest), why not just say (1>15)? It should be clear enough to understand.

  • @Jarson (AddicteD) (Comment 20) : And so would we have had to travel twice. If the Tahs win and then beat the Stormers then and IF we make the final then we would only travel from NZ to Brisbane and then Sidney rather than, NZ, Brisbane, NZ.

  • Neither of these teams will win this year’s competition. This conference system needs a re-look, I reckon the best thing would be to award half log points for local derbies..be it a win, 4 tries or losing within 7 points. Teams can keep their points difference and number of games won. There must be no team that is guaranteed a spot in the play offs. It’s not fair that the Aussie teams get a free ride…would also love to play the Brumbies, Force and Rebels twice. Best thing would be to have an all SA and Aussie semi this year…this would ensure that the New Zealanders and us will be on the same side when this format is reviewed. No way these 2 teams should have qualified ahead of the Bulls. Ali Williams just messed up try..typical of him.

  • @robdylan (Comment 81) :

    I like the way you think!

    It would be epic if the Sharks can beat the Bulls, Saders, Reds and Stormers in consecutive weeks away from home to win the title! :cool:

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 89) : Possibly, but probably not, ask Morne :lol:

    Good luck, though. You may not have noticed, but sharks are not really my favourite team, but from an SA point of view, another all SA final, especially in a World Cup year would be nice!

  • Waratahs spent only 2% of the 2nd half inside the Blues 22…

    Tahs had only 35% possession in the 2nd half as well.

    Blues had missed 16 tackles by halftime to the Tahs 4. By the 72nd minutes Blues had missed only 1 more, then 3 more in the 73rd min for the Tahs 2nd try.

  • The Waratahs had made 9 lineout throws that were judged not straight all season and made 3 more in this game.

    20 Handling errors in this game. The Blues made 7 and Waratahs 13 with 9 in the Blues half.
