    3rd placed Hurricanes host the 12th placed Reds...

    Hurricanes are coming off a big win over the Chiefs while the Reds were kept scoreless by the Brumbies.

    The Reds would have to produce there best game of the season if they're any chance to cause an upset here.

    It will be interesting seeing how Jones goes when he takes over. It'll either bring the Reds back or put them at their lowest ever.

    Thats really big of Eddie considering why he got dumped after the Australian NH tour... Eddie you are a tool.

    Game is wide open really, all Kiwi sides are playing shithouse and the Reds have been on a losing streak... Tune vs the Canes 12 and 13 could be well worth watching.

    This will be no contest Reds are going to get caned, if I had a fantasy rugby team I'd select reds forwards because they are going to go through a lot of tackles and cane's backs because of the sheer number of tries they are going to score.

    47 - 10 CAnes

    Awesome team for the Canes... Best back row in the competition will Cane.... Hurricane.
    My amazingly incredible forsight shows me that Gopperth will come on for Holwell at roughly the 60-65th minute... An excellent bench player to put the final nails in the Reds foot...

    Not wanting to start world war 3, and I'm ony going by the past two games but Tana Umaga is not playing well, at all.

    Hope he improves for this game.

    Final Score 26-22 Canes......meh

    Canes look like easy beats for whoever they face in the finals

    Reds looked the better team all match

    I have to give you credit, you, autralasians, that was a bloody awesome game! Reds pack, amazing - and i thought they were the worst ever!

    Congrats Wally, you Reds played their best rugby in this S14 season (better than in the first game of this season vs Tahs - but there, vs Tahs you always play your best).

    Collins, well, it`s prolly the best maori player of this S14!

    P.S: There is a minus - crowd, very poor crowd!

    Reds missed a few crucial kicks, Canes didn't

    Hey Rassie, that Reds pack did the same thing to the Bulls.

    Nah, they were impressive vs Cheetahs, i agree, but as far as i see, the Reds pack is the lamest of all S14 teams, even your pack (Force pack) produced better schemes but now, in this game, they`ve outdone themselves!

    IMO, this was by far the best Reds game in this S14 !

    I thought the hurricanes played like crap personally who in there right mind keeps kicking the ball when your in the 22 on attack your just giving the ball back to the oppistion.

    So i too think the reds deserved to win that game
