    The tahs indeed got thrashed.

    The best competition only had to be better than the other competitions. If it could be better for not resting players doesn’t mean it would be more best. In terms of resting players I don’t really think it lessens the competition. It’s good in the long run to give players a rest so it’s not that different from what the coaches might do anyway.

    Whether it is the best or not is another story.

    Now the bulls are certain, the chiefs are certain. Two of the highlanders, lions, sharks, and Stormers will make it. The winner of Stormers sharks match will make it, and the lions will make it if they get at least a bonus point , if not the highlanders will make it.

    Here’s hoping for a bulls win by 7 or more points.

    No worries. But I should have said “...bulls win by more than 7” as opposed to “7or more”.

    The Bulls and Lions will both qualify unless the Lions lose by more than 7. The New Zealanders will have a field day.

    I'm trying to figure out how so many people picked the rebels after the last couple weeks results1?! I know Rugby isn't paper scissors rock but the chiefs comfortably beat the crusaders and the Crusaders then Thumped the Rebels, pretty telling results. Pretty clear the Rebels are not the team they were early in the comp and the chiefs are on a surge since Cane came back.

    True, but the crusaders had nothing to lose. The rebels did and they were playing at home.
    And to be fair, that's the kind of comment you make before the game starts.

    So... so the landers need the lions to loose by more than 7?

    Nah We expect to have 4 teams in the playoffs, anything less and we will have an anti-field day.

    I've watched most of the Sunwolves matches this season and they don't roll over (like the Rebels did in that 66-0 loss to the Crusaders). The Sunwolves rarely win, but they play hard and I admire that. The Jaguares lead at half time, as expected.

    I guess the first line should be specialists.
