Big statement of intent as the Blues beat the Hurricanes in Wellington, 34-20, especially the second half. Will certainly spice up next weekend's Blues game against the Cruisaders in Auckland, it's a big improvement over last year's start already!
Watched the Reds vs Waratahs game last night as well, despite several opportunities the Waratahs squandered most of them and lost 17-25 unfortunately. The Sharks unsurprisingly beat the Cheetahs as well despite a second half surge by the home side, going down 22-29. And the Kings thrashed the Force 22-10 in their first Super Rugby game, welcome to the competition guys!
Also, France lost their third game in a row, going down 13-23 against England. Damn, would have liked the French to pull of one of their characteristic surprise wins, but it wasn't to be.
