The opening fixture for weekend 13 of Super Rugby action, and the only Friday fixture, has the Hurricanes taking on the top Australian team, the Brumbies. Both these teams will be pushing hard for victory as a play-off spot is on the line.

The Hurricanes have had a good run these past few weeks, culminating in a victory over the Highlanders last weekend, which has seen them jump up the log and are now only two points outside the play-off zone. A win over the Brumbies will put them in with a shout to be in the top six come the end of the weekend, depending on how results pan out.

The Brumbies are currently sitting pretty at the top of the log, but they will be taking no chances in being caught before the end of the pool games, as the Reds start hitting form and eat up the eight point advantage they currently have. If the Hurricanes prove too strong for the Brumbies, they will aim for at least one bonus point, if not two, to keep the Reds at bay.

Hurricanes: 1. Reggie Goodes,2. Dane Coles,3. Ben May,4. Jeremy Thrush,5. Jason Eaton,6. Brad Shields,7. Karl Lowe,8. Victor Vito,9. TJ Perenara,10. Tusi Pisi,11. Julian Savea,12. Tim Bateman,13. Conrad Smith (c) ,14. Cory Jane,15. Andre Taylor

Replacements : 16. Motu Matu’u,17. Jeffery Toomaga-Allen,18. James Broadhurst,19. Jack Lam,20. Chris Eaton,21. Beauden Barrett,22. Jayden Hayward

    LMS after this game.
    175 teams entered the game:
    8 still alive with a lifeline.
    15 still alive with no lifeline.
    152 out of the game.

  • Great result for the Sharks. The top Aussie team will be in 3rd place so it’s better to open the gap between us and the Canes. Also good for my LMS but not so for Superbru.
