This weekend saw the first weekend of the trans-Tasman Super Rugby competiton.
Pleasing, from a New Zealand point of view, all the New Zealand teams went through the first round unbeaten. However, two Australian teams could have drawn or won their games with their final kicks, so some of the games were very tight.
The top New Zealand side, the mighty Crusaders, had to work hard to beat the Brumbies. Eventually winning 31-29 with the Brumbies missing a last minute conversion to tie the game.
The Hurricanes were too strong for the Waratahs, winning a high scoring game 64-48. The Blues had a comfortable 50-3 victory over the Rebels while the Highlanders beat the top Australian side 40-19. The final game saw the Chiefs beat the Force 20-19.
