Re: Rugby Union 2013 Thread

^ Ah good, it's not often I find myself defending Robbie Deans so I was wondering if I was in the Mirror Universe for a minute there

The Highlanders got absolutely creamed by a much improved Brumbies outfit from the Kings match last weekend, with only one try to show for the Brumbies' three, 19-30 at full time, and that scoreline makes the Highlanders look good, to be honest. Hayden Parker - who along with Fumiaki Tanaka was making his starting debut for the Highlanders in favour of Colin Slade and Aaron Smith - kept the men from down south in touch in the first fourty but it all fell apart as the Brumbies lifted their game in the second half. So the Brumbies deservedly stay in first place while the Highlanders hang onto their prized wooden spoon.
