The 2011 Super 15 tournament kicked off this past weekend in the Southern Hemisphere. On Friday the Melbourne Rebels got off to a bad start when they lost their first match at home against the Waratahs by 43 points to 0 and the Highlanders narrowly beat the Hurricanes in Wellington by 14 points to 9. On Saturday the Blues narrowly beat the Crusaders by 2 points in Auckland, the Brumbies beat the Chiefs by 28 points to 20 in Canberra, the Sharks proved to be too strong for the Cheetahs in Durban and the Bulls narrowly avoided being the victims of a Lions comeback at Coca Cola Park in Johannesburg. On Sunday the Reds narrowly beat the Western Force in Brisbane on Sunday. Unfortunately I did not see any of these games, but word on the street has it that the Bulls / Lions match was a very close one and that the Bulls could count themselves lucky. It will be interesting to see what happens in the Super 15 over the 17 remaining weeks in the tournament.
This try (which was scored by Bulls winger Gerhard van Den Heever on Saturday) has been selected to be featured as one of the Great Tries in the Sport category on Running Wolf’s Rant today:
