Looked like a cracker! I'm glad I'll be able to watch some Super rugby starting this week, Canal+ will show one or two games a week here in France.
But remember that this is only a 2 min highlight of the game, the other 78 min were perhaps very boring :)
In the Top14 there are only 5, max 6 teams that play an expansive style of running rugby, and in the Premiereship perhaps only 2 or 3 (Saracens and co), so the NZ games are indeed more spectacular in that area of the game. But I personally like everything in rugby, I like the gritty muddy forward games as much as the wild running games.

Which reminds me, don't forget that it's the end of summer over in NZ, a time of year when even the English teams all play running rugby. It's when it starts raining all the time and getting muddy that the game undergoes a transformation. Super rugby ends around July when it rains all the time in NZ.

I see what you mean.

"Brumbies win borefest"

"Bulls win dreary affair at Loftus"

Two latest headlines on Supersport's site.

Im sorry but they may be able to pass... but none of them can tackle no wonder they have the time to pass!!
Pathetic defence nothing else creates the "running rugby"

Any 1 who comments negativity towards a decent game of footy should ask the question why have none of the Home Nation teams been able to topple the AB's......Riddle me that please!!!!!!!!

Guy (guest) above me is obviously a troll, did you not see the try saving tackle Toeava made in that video? Ignorant troll..

rudi wulf imo was probably the best back, with toeava and ranger close behind (for blues) he was amazing this game in attack and defence, his positional play for kicks was not too bad either. Fruean showing some devastating moments hopefully a sign of things to come. Kaino's hit made me cheer lets hope he brings that aggressiveness into S15 and all the way again.
