Super 14 Semi Finals preview

Super 14 Semi Finals preview

It's Super 14 Semi Final weekend as the Chiefs and the Hurricanes do battle in
Hamilton on Friday, and the Bulls host the Crusaders in Pretoria on Saturday.

The Canes vs the Chiefs promises to be an open match with both sides possessing serious strike power out wide. Up front, fascinating battles will take place between the big men, as it's Rodney Soalo up against Sione Lauaki at the back of the scrums.

The Chiefs have never made the Final, so will be looking to change that after their highly impressive season.

In Pretoria we'll see the powerful Bulls being taken on by last years winners, the Crusaders. Richie McCaw's men had a slow start to the season, but as always, made things right and got themselves into a semi final position.

The Bulls, 2007 champions themselves, will be without their first choice center pairing due to suspension and injury, but have speed to burn out wide, and a highly physical and confrontational forward pack.

Loftus Versfeld is an intimidating place to play, but the Crusaders have loads of experience and quality, so wont be phased. This one should be a classic.

Should be an awesome weekend of Rugby!

I don get it, why does Weepu not get more game time for the All Blacks? He always seems like a consistent and creative scrum half, but never seems to be first choice.

Geez what a missed tackle by Cory Jane on Lauaki, all he had to do was wrap his feet and the Canes would be in the final.
