Super 14 Pick of the Week - Round 8

Round eight of the Super 14 saw a change at the top of the table as the Bulls went down to the Blues on the road, and the Waratahs beat the Cheetahs in Sydney.

The Waratahs went top as they beat the Cheetahs 40-17 at the Sydney Football Stadium. They sit on 28 points on the table, as do the Bulls, but the Australian side have a better points difference. The Bulls do have a game in hand, but will need to lift their game on tour.

It wasn't a great week for the South African sides in general, with only the Sharks winning, in Durban, against the on form Reds. Quade Cooper was at his best once again though, dazzling the defence and once again showing that he's Australia's form number ten.

The Crusaders, third on the table, played to a 26-26 draw with the Hurricanes, with Dan Carter missing a last minute conversion kick that would have won the match.

The Stormers, sitting fourth, went down to the Force in Perth after a dramatic late drop kick from flyhalf David Hill. Flanker David Pocock, making his return from injury, scored a great try for the Force.

The try of the weekend was possibly the effort by the Highlanders, and Fetu'u Vainikolo, against the Chiefs. It's the second week in a row that they've scored a fantastic team try.

One of the moments of the weekend though was when Waratahs prop Al Baxter scored his first ever Super 14 try, in his 100th Super Rugby match. Classic commentary from The Gregs and Kearnsey made it worth including in this compilation. Warning though, blink and you'll miss it.

Enjoy the tries. We'll have an archive set up for all the Super 14 Pick's of the Week soon.
Oh, and one more thing.. Try Savers & Rib Breakers 11 is almost ready to be posted.

  • "He doesn't have a post-try celebration sorted out. Why not?"

    ...because he's a quality athlete, not a douchebag.

    That's one of the reason I like seeing front-rowers score tries. Everybody loves it, but they just make their way back to half-way and continue on playing.

  • Jacko...crawl back into your hole mate!!! This is ENTERTAINMENT. Nothin wrong with havin a bit of fun...they scored it, they celebrate it.

    Bings a smile to the face...some days the commentary is dodgy, but with comments like Marto's here one can only have a quiet chuckle.

  • Awesome stuff.
    Go on Baxter.
    Hey Jackson lighten up mate, try and have a bit of fun from time to time.
    Your name should be Buzz Killington.

  • Enjoyed the Spies try .. the "reach out and dot it down" is one of the game's more sensible recent law changes .. Spies was the player that gave the movement its initial momentum on the far side and he eventually turns up to make the extra man on the right wing, superb backrow play.
    Agree that it's good to see Nonu test the defence and get a result, he seems to have lacked a little penetration lately.
    And the ugliest try is the nicest moment on here, well done Al Baxter .. good commentary on that one too.
    The music is blah but at least it's not too intrusive.

  • Awesome compilation RD, as always the Aussie commentators rock :)

    By Anonymous Jeremy, at April 08, 2010 10:08 am  

  • Not meaning to be uncharitable but isn't Al Baxter part of the ruck when he picks that ball up meaning it should be a penalty to the defence. Maybe the ref decided that would be too cruel.

    By Anonymous Gaz, at April 08, 2010 10:24 am  

  • Yay for Baxter. Great running rugby haha

  • Loved the australian commentary. Nonu's try was terrific.

  • is it me or does the offload from the Crusaders no.12 looked to be forward?

    By Blogger Jeroz, at April 09, 2010 3:31 pm  

  • yep he is not on his feet when he picks up the ball, and bound to the ruck pretty obviously

    By Anonymous mat, at April 09, 2010 5:30 pm  

  • I agree with Jackson, that is why I can't stand soccer. Only celebrate when your score is higher than the other teams at FULL TIME!

    Baxter, you bloody beaut! That is like a cliche hollywood film ending there!

    By Anonymous Les Bleus, at April 09, 2010 9:54 pm  

  • Jeroz you newbie :), it is Ryan Crotty and yes it did look it but that wasn't the worst decision of the night.

  • quade cooper looks to have the wallabies no10 shirt.lol at the end

    By Anonymous rosh, at April 10, 2010 1:58 pm  

  • Cooper at 10 and Gitaeu at 12.
    I think Gitaeu's better at inside centre anyway, it means he can run more and that was always one of his main strengths.

  • post try celebrations are giving everyone a bit of a laugh i love seeing theze chaps have a bit of creative fun after the fact.. magnificent running rugby!
