How good was that finish?

What a fabulous match it was at Eden Park last night as the Hurricanes pipped the hapless Blues with the last play of the match.

Here are the try-scoring highlights, courtesy of YouTube. And given that the Hurricanes scored FOUR tries to the Blues' one, you see a lot more of the yellow team!







The Hurricanes hung in to the last minute, and such is the attacking potential they have at the back, a sniff was all they needed. Despite Steve Walsh being the referee (we will say no more!), it was a terrific match with a great finish. We watched it at the Four Kings in Wellington, and it's fair to say that there would have been a case to call Noise Control after Conrad Smith scored and Beaudeen Barrett converted; the place went off.

As for the Blues, their season lurches from one catastrophe to the next, and we genuinely feel sorry for their supporters. No; really and truly, we do!

Super Rugby lived up to its name last night.

Conrad, ... ......just....... Conrad.

Can other teams please stop making this pale shadow of a Hurricanes side look competent.

@James - Clearly the Canes are doing something right or else they wouldn't be winning. I think perhaps you might be bitter that Hammett kicked out Nonu and Weepu, but let's face it, they are playing better without them.
