  • After a very hectic few weeks, during which my only chance to watch any rugby was a visit to the shark tank for the test against Wales, I get a chance to watch a half of rugby again…13-13 Chiefs Highlanders…

  • @Poisy (Comment 20) : no, not really.

    It moves the Landers above the Crusaders. Just means the Crusaders will be even more determined to win tomorrow.

  • Don’t underestimate the Canes’ motivation to win….they could get to 42 log points this weekend.

    If any team can spring a surprise, it’s the Canes – unpredictable!

  • @robdylan (Comment 22) : On the flip side, more pressure and desperation could also mean very tired bodies come playoff time.
