It was a bit of a mixed bag in round 1 of Super Rugby last weekend, as we saw a few relatively dull games, as well as some that were thoroughly enjoyable to watch. Here's your Pick of the Week, featuring the best tries from the first round.
As mentioned in a previous post, the Blues match against the Crusaders was probably the game of the weekend in terms of a spectacle, with the result, a narrow win for the Blues, possibly being somewhat of an upset.
This weekend the Crusaders were set to play the Hurricanes, but due to the devastating nature of the disaster that's taken place in Christchurch, both franchises have agreed to not play the match, with the result being considered a draw. Each side will take two points from it.
You saw Robbie Coleman's brilliant effort for the Brumbies against the Chiefs, as well as Gerhard van den Heevers solo sprint against the Lions, earlier in the week. Those are included again in this summary, along with a pick of the best from the other matches.
On a side note, there's been a few distasteful comments on here of late, which is totally against the spirit of the website and cannot be considered acceptable. Rugbydump has always strived to bring you the best video clips from around the world, aiming to make it a pleasant experience for the true rugby fan, no matter where you're from.
You're exposed to literally thousands of people from all over the world every day of the week. Embrace that, discuss rugby, make friends. If you can't do that, please don't bother commenting. Arguing on here is pointless and all that happens is the site's reputation gets tarnished, which leads to less traffic, less revenue, and less chance of RD staying afloat.
