Also Pollard and Kriel back from being rested last week, should be a much stronger Bulls team ALSO the reds look a little depleted they are without Naivalu/Daugunu/Petaia so their backline has lost a lot of it's power.
To call this a must win for the Bulls is under-stating things.
I may have called this one a bit early, didn't realize all the personnel changes... home field might make the difference.

I actually like what I saw of Josh Ioane, plus Rob Thomson and Walden being back can only improve things, they are definitely the best centre pairing the landers have, they are out Naholo but he hasn't been great this year anyway.

That said noone really has a good shot at beating the Crusaders, and that goes triple at home.

Very entertaining first half that. Delighted to see how up for it the Highlanders are.

We can see the score...do we need Justine marshall going on and on and out how good they’ve been and how lucky we were to have ever been in front?

It won’t have changed the result but how have the crusaders not got someone in the bin, something like 12 penalties in the last 10min, 6 of them after a warning

Edit: Card in extra time....

18 - 5 penalties, we have a penalty try against us on our line and they can just keep giving them away on their line

the Highlanders looked well off the pace in the 2nd half i'm afraid. I think there is a real chance they'll miss the play-offs this season.

You would have gotten it wrong too.
Super rugby has been throwing us curve balls since round 1. My super bru suffers. Regardless, there is a strange satisfaction with this unpredictability. Atleast everyone except the Crusaders

I like your optimism, but with Marty's broken foot, it's gonna be an uphill battle...
ja ja they have to loose sometime!!
they are just so good atm. that second half has to be one of the best SR displays ever.
