SUPER 15 RUGBY WEEKEND 22/23 FEB, 2014: SHARKS VS HURRICANES

What a blitzkrieg from the home team in the first few minutes of the match! Their scrum was utilised as an unstoppable series of tank attacks against fairly feeble infantry. ( I'm prone to be critical of scrums, wondering what all the fuss is about re the famous 'front five', but this resolute display of skill and power, played a significant part in the final result. Things happened from these set pieces.)


A superbly well-coached team showed impressive attention to fundamental skills and kept the momentum going forward. Defence was excellent. Lambie was on song with the boot. Hurricanes were long on effort but short on imagination and drive, apart from some fine individual work.
Final Score: 36-16.
