  • @rhineshark (Comment 2) : Yes!? I don’t see why that should be surprising. A team that is arrogant enough to believe all they have to do is attack and they will win? They play the basics badly,players not playing their roles and a game plan that sees them running around like headless chickens. And all of this has cost them causing them to be at the bottom of the table.

  • @Seth101 (Comment 8) : And before you ask, the difference between them and the lions, is the lions are un assuming, they just come out every game with less experience, talent and big name players and they just play their heart out. They may not win a lot but when they do its with heart and class.

  • It would seem none of these NZ wings have ever heard of a forward pass.

  • And Jantjies misses it after the Highlanders advance before the kick was taken and does NOT allow Jantjies to retake the kick

    Highlanders win. 23-22
