Last night's Chiefs vs Blues match was another armwrestle with the Chiefs defense proving the difference and not cracking until the 78th minute, 23-16 at full time. A yellow card for the Chiefs and two tries that were ruled out in the first half will leave the home team with something to think about during the bye next week after which they take on the Reds at Waikato Stadium, and the Blues take on the luckless Highlanders at Eden Park next Friday.
And yeah, agree Brumbies were lucky to come away with a win after a spirited Bulls comeback in the second half. The Rebels got another clobbering, from the Cheetahs this week, losing 34-16 at Bloemfontein. And the Crusaders delivered another performance in Cape Town to come back from 11-0 down to take down the Stormers 19-14 with several players out injured, nice! I managed to catch the last 20 minutes this morning, I might actually get up early next Saturday to watch the Sharks vs Crusaders game live.
