Super 14 Pick of the Week - Round 14

Super 14 Pick of the Week - Round 14

The Super 14 2009 is almost over, as were into the Semi Final stages this weekend, with one team already having qualified for the big final that will decide who will be the provincial champions of the Southern Hemisphere.

The standard of tries last week possibly werent quite as impressive as Round 13, but there were a few great moments of quality from certain players as the race for the Semis lifted the performances of all teams in the chase.

The Chiefs secured their home semi by beating the Brumbies in a tightly contested match, but it was the losing sides flying winger Francis Fainafo who showed up speedster Lelia Masaga with his determined chase for a neat try.

For the Hurricanes, one of the finds of the season has been big Sevens star Victor Vito, who played a significant part on both their tries against the Reds, namely setting up Piri Weepu, and then Maa Nonu. Keep an eye out for him in the future.

Ryan Cross and Scott Staniforth both scored nice tries for the Force as they bid farewell to a whole host of players, by beating the Highlanders. Staniforth, Matt Giteau, and Drew Mitchell, to name a few, wont be wearing Force colours again.

The Stormers Joe Petersen continued his nice little bit of good form as he crossed again in Cape Town, but it was the Sharks who scored possibly the try of the week, with their long range effort against the Bulls, finished off by Steven Sykes.

I like how Mtawarira plays, he is a Prop/Flanker foward, great tries , the super 14 started a bit boring but then it got as good as the old times Super rugby in the last games.

Mtawarira is a prop like the french prop Fabien Barcella ( or Cameroun prop Tchougong ), a prop/flanker with good speed and always in the good place to support they're backs, what a try.


Beast !

To the anonymous ass above, why did you even bother to watch it then????? My thoughts EXACTLY!! Super 14 viewing is for those fans who actually know something about rugby, clearly you do not!!! Go play football!!!!!

super 14 is a lower form of rugby compared to Guinness Premiership or heineken cup.

Then why do you lot constantly bring pover S14 players and coaches if it's worse?
Why is Rocky Elsom the best player in Euope, when he was simply a very good player in the S14?
You lot up north are deluded, you constantly los4e to us, but somehow think your rugby's better.

Sharks -- I might have a short memory, but perhaps the best try of the season.

85-90 metres run, seven different players touching it (incl two tight five), and finished off by a lock fwd as well.

Don't get me wrong, the Beast is such fun to watch. However, it seems that Sykes has been in the right place at the right time on more than a few occasions this year.

sharks and hurricanes ones are world class!

Will great to see SH vs NH tests
Lions come with 40 players and France will have a far better "SH tests" selection than past years
