The Hurricanes got the better of the Stormers in their Super Rugby round 8 match in Wellington earlier today. Despite a one sided first half, the Stormers came back in the second, but couldn’t quite get the win, going down 25-20.
It was a hard-fought game, at times physically intense, as can be seen here when Julian Savea and Eben Etsebeth came to grips, and played a game of slapsies, smiles and all. Savea actually was smiling at first, then got very serious after the first love tap. Etsebeth, fearless throughout.
It wasn’t quite as vicious as when Bismarck Du Plessis and James Horwill did something similar at the Rugby World Cup a few years back, but was equally amusing to see, especially from the comfort of ones living room. Rory Kockott on Adam Thomson, probably the biggest of them all.
