Super 14 Pick of the Week - Round 6

Now things gets interesting. The Super 14 is approaching the halfway stage and the top two teams, the Bulls and the Stormers, are off on tour. Will the Bulls continue to dominate while they're away from home? Time will tell. For now though, we'll take a look at the best tries of Round 6.

Starting off with the outstanding match between the Blues and the Brumbies at Eden Park, we've got a great try that was finished off by centre Benson Stanley after a great break out by Rene Ranger and some neat handling from the backs. The Blues won the match 39-34.

Joe Rokocoko scored a couple of tries on the night too, with the one coming from a well placed kick by Stephen Brett. Patrick Phibbs crossed for the Brumbies after a nice burst by Rocky Elsom.

The Crusaders thumped the Lions 46-19 in Christchurch, but the final score perhaps didn't do the tourists justice as they'd been in the match for the most part, spare a few late tries from the hosts. Crusaders Flanker Jonathan Poff got his chance to start and showed what a valuable asset he can be to the side, as well as crossing for a try. Sean Maitland also scored a classy try.

One of the games of the weekend was the meeting of the Bulls and the Hurricanes at Loftus. While the Hurricanes hadn't had such a good tour, the Bulls had been rampant and were probably expected to breeze past.

It wasn't the case though, as the 'Canes pushed them all the way, including scoring a great try after some excellent handling. The final score was 19-18 to the Bulls, which included a nice finish by fullback Zane Kirchner.

In an incredibly physical local derby, the Stormers beat the Cheetahs 21-8 with Jaque Fourie scoring a nice try after some good play by captain Schalk Burger.

It was a pretty entertaining weekend of rugby all in all, but Round 7 has begun so it's now time to focus on that. If you spot anything that you think is worth sharing on RD, please fire in a mail or post a request.

Enjoy the tries, and have a good weekend. The Ross Skeate column is coming up.

  • 100% Agree with FrankyH try is just magic !

  • Would love to see Ranger's try, but Stanley's try is just purely awesome. The fluidity in attack is just mesmerising.
    Feel bad for Brumbie's no.12, got bumped off by Ranger, and failed to shut down the attack near the tryline.

  • Bulls top of the table, followed by fellow South Africans the Stormers. Wow what domination. Will it be 3-0 against the All Blacks AGAIN this year?

  • Check out the Burger-Jaque Fourie try. Fourie's handling - magical.

  • Last pass on the 1st try was forward, was it not? Otherwise, great stuff.

  • ^ I also thought that, but it may have just been the angle. It looked almost lateral.. almost ;)

  • I don't mind people putting up stupid comments... as long as they have the balls to use their proper login...
    Anon...Early Call on beating the Allblacks 3 zip...and hey....its still early days to assume the bulls and stormers will remain at the top considering they havent toured nz and oz...

  • cheating NZ and AUS refs always try and fuck the south african sides. Its like the French when they play the other NH clubs.

    By Anonymous Netchi, at March 27, 2010 12:32 am  

  • Yeah nz and oz refs cheat big time. Allowing forward passes, 16 men on the field, 6 points for a try instead of 5 etc etc etc. Poor Saffas are so hard done by.

    By Anonymous invictus, at March 27, 2010 1:27 am  

  • Maybe this

    "Allowing forward passes"

    coz it's sometimes hard to judge on the spot but this

    "6 points for a try instead of 5"

    I'm not so sure ... :S

  • bulls #1 undefeated.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at March 27, 2010 1:47 am  

  • The tackling in some cases is pathetic, but other then that some of the tries are epic!

  • Sean Maitland has great pace... He's got a big future ahead of him.

    By Anonymous Tui, at March 28, 2010 2:25 pm  

  • The first try is absolutely awesome. Great running from their own 22. Fourie's Handling is also very very good.

    By Anonymous Ben, at March 28, 2010 9:40 pm  

  • First try was awesome.
    This is the best rugby in the world, the S14 is awesome.
