Super 12 highlights 1999 - 2000

Super 12 highlights 1999 - 2000

As the 2009 Super 14 kicks off today, weve got another video for you from a past tournament that featured some fantastic tries and close encounters.

The Crusaders began their dominance of the tournament in 1998 with their title victory, and continued that supremacy by winning the next two years, marking their impressive three year stint as the side to beat.

Ten years back, in 1999, they faced the Otago Highlanders in the final in Dunedin.
The Crusaders won 24-19 in a closely fought final, lifting their second Super 12 title.

In 2000 it was again the turn of the men in red from Canterbury, as they beat the Brumbies in another tight and tense final, with 20-19 being the score in the end.

This clip features a few more classic tries from the tournaments, with some of the big names featuring nicely. Look out for a young George Smith, nineteen years old at the time, scoring a neat try.

Enjoy, and heres looking forward to another classic season of Super 14 rugby.

Surely Smith has missed his calling as a winger :DAlso, gotta love the big 8 chipping and gathering for a neat score.

Really enjoyed that RD, cheers.On a side note, is it me or have rugby jersies got worse and worse since about 1995? There are some truly horrible ones in this vid (the Highlanders esp) and the current crop are really terrible with England's and Scotland's being probably the worst. The only team who look consistently good is the All Blacks. Choose one colour. Stick to it. That's the rule as far as I'm concerned.

I Think that video did the S14 more justice than the other one. This one had lots of that good old SH running game.
