2015 Super Rugby Season

Recommended Posts

The 2015 Super Rugby kicked off early this morning with three games and the remainder being played tonight and tomorrow morning. Because of the Rugby World Cup being hosted in England/Wales/Scotland in September, the Super Rugby Final will be in July and The Rugby Championship will only be contested over three rounds.

Any thoughts on this upcoming season? Will Waratahs repeat as champions (they kickoff v Force on Sunday)? What a dominant win by the Brumbies this morning over the Red 47-3. The Reds are still going to be struggling throughout the season like they did in 2014. But the Brumbies set out an early marker for the remainder of the clubs to meet or beat.

I want my Highlanders to do something as well. I know they made the playoffs and narrowly lost out to the Sharks in the first round of the playoffs.

Hopefully my Stormers can bring a title back home.

Stormers had a good game at the Bulls picking up the four points. And the Cheetahs had a memorable win at the Sharks. There was action for the full 80 minutes in the that game. Cheetahs defense was pretty resilient for the last 15 minutes against a strong Sharks. Plus picking up the bonus point helps their cause out.

Highlanders v Crusaders will be a great matchup next Sunday.

Such a disappointing win for the Stormers, up 15-14 men for the majority and couldnt get the bonus point.

True a little disappointing but at least they picked up the victory and four points in the end..up one man or not.

I watched the Highlanders v Crusaders match and the Crusaders pretty man handed the Highlanders throughout, even through the final score was 26-20 Crusaders. It was pretty much over at half. McCaw and Cruden both stepped up, taking it to the Highlanders.

Though game of the round was Rebels v Waratahs - action from first to last whistle, high scoring and in the end the current Super Rugby holders win gaining five points. A very entertaining game on Thursday night.
