a typical entertaing kiwi game with my hurricanes coming out the victors, :o)
i feel bad for the highlanderrs though, cos they had some tough calls go against them, like conrads try where hurricanes fullback in the ruck could clearly be seen holding onto jason emery (i think) leaving a big hole around the fringes which smith capitalised on.
not his fsault though, i put the blame squarely on francisco pastrana the argeninan ref who was in charge of the rebels match a week earlier in one of the worst reffing displays ive ever seen.
spXV seems to be too high a level for pastrana and IMO hes not good eneough to ref an ITM or currie cup game.
be that as it may, im really worried about the hurricanes defnece, it seems to be totally void of any structure or synergised cohesion, it looks like veryone just concetrates on the man close to them in a rubbish zoning of sorts.
hurricanes attack was decent, they looked the more threatning of the two teams, but the highlanders will rue a few miss chances of their own.
highlanders have gotten of to a bad start in 2013, but that was to be expected after lady injury chose the highlanders to be its valentine. they are going to need as amny of their top players back playing for them ASAP, cos they really are huritng and lacking at the moment.
nice to see jason emery get his spXV career of to a good start in his first starting game, he was very solid and i believe he will improve to be a a fantastic rugby player. very fast and elusive, but also very strong indefence,e specially with some of his one on ones.
the NZ u20 player is carrying on with his form from last year in the u20s championship in SA, playing a very exciting and strong brand of attacking rugby, what a typical kiwi, lolz, :oP
