I’m glad the quality of rugby is getting back to what we’ve come to expect. That’s to be expected too, it usually takes most teams 4-6 games in Super rugby to hit their stride. It’s just odd in super rugby aotearoa when that means you are already halfway through the comp before the rugby gets good. Last year was a bit different because at least they’d started the normal super rugby comp earlier in the year so weren’t completely fresh.

anyway, the highlanders are going to find it tough now, they have to win with a bonus point, hope the blues lose to the crusaders without a bonus point then beat the chiefs without a bonus point, and hope the chiefs lose to the hurricanes, and hope after all that they have a better points differential than the blues.

in sum, if the chiefs beat the hurricanes next week they probably make the final. If they don’t then it’s probably down to the chiefs vs blues in the final round. Edit: even if the chiefs win against the hurricanes, the blues will make it if they win against the crusaders and the chiefs.

What a crucial kick missed by Richie proved to be.

Congratulations to the Chiefs. I really enjoy it when the Crusaders lose, especially a close one. That was a great game!
