So weve watched fourteen rounds of the Super 14 and the top four have been decided after yet another intense week of rugby down south. Weve got a great selection of tries for you today, so take a look at the Pick of the Week ahead of the semi finals tomorrow.
The Bulls, who fielded a below par side in order to rest some players, got hammered by the Stormers in Cape Town who were playing for a home semi final spot.
The Stormers actually set a few records this season, as they are the side that conceded the lowest amount of points for a season, as well as the least number of tries, 17. Nobody managed a four-try bonus point against them either, and the Blues were the only team to cross three times, despite the Stormers winning that game.
They will host the Waratahs tomorrow, a side whove actually won and lost the same amount of games as the Stormers, as well as scored 20 more points than them. Theyve conceded more though, with the Stormers having a better points difference. By all means theyre an evenly matched side, so it should be a great game.
The Bulls, sitting pretty on the top of the table, will host the Crusaders in Soweto, a field foreign to them, but theyll no doubt have the fans from Pretoria out in full force. The Crusaders have a disadvantage when it comes to travel, as they left South Africa not too long ago, but have now had to make the long trip back for the game.
Were set for a great afternoon of rugby with two intense semi finals. For now though, heres the best tries from the final round-robin stage of the tournament. Theyre all quality tries as usual, but make sure you dont miss the Quade Cooper flick that everyones been talking about. Enjoy.
