Hurricanes set up final clash with Highlanders after big win over the Brumbies

The Hurricanes will contest their first Super Rugby final since 2006 when they have the Highlanders in Wellington. The ‘Canes beat the Brumbies 29-9 in Saturday’s first semi final, before the Highlanders outplayed the Waratahs in Sydney.

The two leading teams of the 2015 season will lock horns in Wellington as the Hurricanes or Highlanders will etch their name on the Super Rugby trophy for the very first time.

The Hurricanes, who were only beaten twice throughout the regular season on their way to the NZ Conference title, have earned the right to host the decider after winning their sold-out Semi-Final.

The Highlanders will challenge them following a clinical 35-17 victory over the defending champion Waratahs, and next weekend will represent the first all-New Zealand Super Rugby Final since the Crusaders prevailed over the Hurricanes 19-12 in 2006.

The Hurricanes scored tries through Julan Savea, TJ Perenara, Ardie Savea and Matt Proctor, as the Brumbies struggled to contain their attacking ability and power out wide.

“It’s massive for us,” said skipper Conrad Smith of the home advantage in the final. “It was a big motivation for us to know that if we kicked one in tonight we would play here, so it’s a big edge for us.”
