Preview: S15 Round Seven, Part One

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 22:28

The Rebels head to Wellington to face a decidedly under-par Hurricanes, and the Reds are at home to a vastly improved Lions outfit.

The Rebels head to Wellington to face a decidedly under-par Hurricanes this Friday, as the Super Rugby season approaches the halfway stage.

While the Rebels have not exactly threatened any team since their opening round victory over the Crusaders, they will fancy their chances against a Hurricanes team sans several key All Blacks.

These two sides have produced some fascinating contests since the Rebels' 2011 inception.

In Friday's other outing the Reds, like their compatriots the Rebels, will look to put a rocky start to the season behind them when they host the Lions in Brisbane.

While the Reds come off a bye, the Lions are Fresh from their upset win over The Rebels last week.

We look at Friday's matches!

Friday, March 27


Hurricanes v Rebels
(Westpac Stadium, Wellington - Kick-off: 19.35; 17.35 AEDT; 06.35 GMT)

The decision by Hurricanes coach Chris Boyd to rest a number of All Blacks has produced a serious threat to the New Zealand franchise's unbeaten run.

Sitting pretty at the top of the standings with five wins from five starts, the Hurricanes will be sans Beauden Barrett, Ben Franks and Julian Savea.

The decision means Boyd runs the risk of his team losing momentum.

Boyd, speaking to the New Zealand media this week, was at pains to stress that he is not disrespecting the Rebels, who have just two wins from their five starts.

However, given the 'request' of the New Zealand Rugby Union his All Blacks will be rotated and rested over the next five matches.

"It's a tough situation, but we've taken the approach the New Zealand conference games represent double points really, so it's highly unlikely we will rest our All Blacks against any of the New Zealand teams," Boyd told The Dominion Post.

"When we looked at what was coming up - the Rebels, Stormers, Waratahs, Reds and Sharks - we decided that have got to try and get our rests in amongst those games.

"We have a very tough back-end of the season - we play the Crusaders twice, the Chiefs twice, the Highlanders and Blues again, so all New Zealand games.

"We'd like to be close to having all our rotations done by the end of this block."

What has been most impressive about the Wellingtonians has been their ability to grind out results in tough situations, such as last week's win over a gallant Highlanders outfit in Dunedin.

They have great depth in their squad, with All Blacks Cory Jane, Ma'a Nonu and Conrad Smith still there.

The Rebels will look back last Friday's defeat to the Lions as one that got away.

However, the challenge of taking on the competition leaders in their own backyard comes at a good time for a Rebels team motivated to hit back, and buoyed by strong form on the road with wins against the Crusaders and the Western Force to kick off their travels this year.

Previous results:
2014: Hurricanes won 25-15, Melbourne
2012: Hurricanes won 66-24, Wellington
2011: Rebels won 42-25, Melbourne

Prediction: The Hurricanes' last home match against the Rebels, in May 2012, represents their highest ever points haul (66) in a Super Rugby match. The same game also marks the most points conceded by the Rebels in a Super Rugby game. The match ended 66-24. The three matches between these sides have produced 197 points in total with final scores of 25-15 (2014), 66-24 (2012) and 42-25 (2011). The Rebels have the lowest line-out success rate (79 percent) this season. Opponents of the Hurricanes have spent longer in possession (16 minutes 29 seconds) than against any other side this season. Despite the absence of key players, the Hurricanes still have too much fire power for a Rebels team that is just not consistent enough. The Hurricanes by 15 points.

Teams:

Hurricanes: 15 Jason Woodward, 14 Cory Jane, 13 Conrad Smith (captain), 12 Ma'a Nonu, 11 Matt Proctor, 10 James Marshall, 9 TJ Perenara, 8 Victor Vito, 7 Callum Gibbins, 6 Brad Shields, 5 James Broadhurst, 4 Jeremy Thrush, 3 Ben May, 2 Motu Matu'u, 1 Reggie Goodes.
Replacements: 16 Brayden Mitchell, 17 Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, 18 Chris Eves, 19 Mark Abbott, 20 Adam Hill, 21 Chris Smylie, 22 Otere Black, 23 Nehe Milner-Skudder.

Rebels: 15 Mike Harris, 14 Tom English, 13 Tamati Ellison, 12 Mitch Inman, 11 Sefanaia Naivalu, 10 Jack Debreczeni, 9 Nic Stirzaker, 8 Scott Higginbotham, 7 Scott Fuglistaller, 6 Sean McMahon, 5 Cadeyrn Neville, 4 Luke Jones, 3 Laurie Weeks, 2 Pat Leafa, 1 Toby Smith.
Replacements: 16 Tom Sexton, 17 Cruze Ah-Nau, 18 Paul Alo-Emile, 19 Radike Samo, 20 Colby Fainga'a, 21 Ben Meehan, 22 Bryce Hegarty, 23 Jonah Placid.

Reds v Lions
(Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane - Kick-off: 19.00; 11.00 SAST; 09.00 GMT)

The Reds, buoyed by the return of several key Wallabies, see the Lions as a stepping stone to revive their campaign and keep alive their goal of reaching the play-offs.

Reds coach Richard Graham said his team has benefitted hugely from last week's bye and will be able to end their three-match losing streak.

"We are looking at the next block of five games as an opportunity to kick-start our season," he said of a run that will see them face the Lions (at home), Rebels (in Melbourne), the Bulls (in Pretoria), the Cheetahs (in Bloemfontein ) and the Hurricanes (in Brisbane).

"In recent years eight wins and some bonus points got teams into the play-offs and there are still 11 games left." Graham added.

However, he admitted the Lions pose a unique set of threats.

"They are a very different side to the traditional South African side," the Reds coach said, adding: "They move the ball very well and very creative - not too dissimilar to the Cheetahs."

Lions coach Johan Ackermann feels his team could have the momentum - having won two of their last three games and are fresh from last week's impressive come-from-behind victory over the Rebels.

Ackermann felt defence will again be a key aspect for his brave charges.

"Hopefully we can produce another solid showing in that facet," he told rugby365, adding: "You just needed to see the faces of Warren Whiteley and Warwick Tecklenburg after the match against the Rebels to realise how the players put their bodies on the line."

"Our support play has also been great in the last few weeks.

"However, the one area that will be key if we want a realistic chance to win will be our set pieces, scrums and line-outs.

"We have to ensure they don't have all the possession. The Reds have some really dangerous players and, as we saw against the Rebels last week, you can only defend for so long.

"They are also one of the teams that can retain the ball for long periods, so we will have to control the possession more."

Recent results:
2014: Lions won 23-20, Johannesburg
2012: Reds won 34-20, Brisbane
2011: Reds won 30-25, Johannesburg
2010: Reds won 41-26, Johannesburg
2009: Lions won 31-20, Brisbane
2008: Reds and Lions drew 24-all, Johannesburg

Prediction: The Lions won this fixture last year, but they have never managed consecutive victories against the Reds. The Lions were victorious in two of their last three visits to Suncorp Stadium, though this run dates back to 2007. The losing side has scored exactly 20 points in the last two meetings between the sides, as well as the last three at Suncorp. The Reds (7.8) and Lions (13) rank last and second last for average points this season. The Reds are the only side yet to score a try in the opening quarter of matches. The Lions always have a chance, based purely on their resilience. However, they will need to be within one score going into the  final quarter if they are to have a realistic chance. However, the Reds are getting enough class back to ensure they start as favourites and should win by 10 points or less.

Teams:

Reds: 15 Lachie Turner, 14 Chris Kuridrani, 13 Samu Kerevi, 12 Anthony Fainga'a, 11 James O'Connor, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Will Genia, 8 Jake Schatz, 7 Curtis Browning, 6 Adam Thomson, 5 Dave McDuling, 4 James Horwill, 3 Sam Talakai, 2 James Hanson, 1 James Slipper (captain).
Replacements: 16 Saia Fainga'a, 17 Ben Daley, 18 Greg Holmes, 19 Marco Kotze, 20 Michael Gunn, 21 Nick Frisby, 22 Ben Tapuai, 23 Chris Feauai-Sautia.

Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Ruan Combrinck, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Harold Vorster, 11 Sampie Mastriet, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Ross Cronje, 8 Warren Whiteley (captain), 7 Warwick Tecklenburg, 6 Derick Minnie, 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Robert Kruger, 3 Ruan Dreyer, 2 Robbie Coetzee, 1 Schalk van der Merwe.
Replacements: 16 Armand van der Merwe, 17 Jacques van Rooyen, 18 Julian Redelinghuys, 19 Martin Muller, 20 Jaco Kriel, 21 Francois de Klerk, 22 Marnitz Boshoff, 23 Howard Mnisi.

Hurricanes rally late for win

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 08:34

MATCH REPORT: The Hurricanes scored 26 unanswered second-half points to beat the Rebels 36-12 in their Super Rugby encounter on Friday.

The Hurricanes scored 26 unanswered second-half points to beat the Rebels 36-12 in their Super Rugby encounter in Wellington on Friday.

The Rebels, as has become the norm, gave good account of themselves in the first half and were good value for their two-point (12-10) lead at the break.

However, four second-half tries - of which two were in the final three minutes - saw the Hurricanes retain their status as the tournament's only unbeaten team.

The Hurricanes were made to work hard for their sixth win of the season.

Replacement wing Nehe Milner-Skudder scored a late double to give the Hurricanes a five-tries-to-nil, bonus-point victory - to keep their unbeaten start to the season intact.

Despite the score, the Rebels were in the contest for much of the match and the Hurricanes showed tremendous courage under fire to repel waves of Rebels attack deep inside their own territory.

Throughout the match, and particularly in the middle stages of the second half, the Rebels were able to build pressure by keeping play close to the rucks and starving the Hurricanes of possession.

Trailing 10-12 at half-time, the Hurricanes twice broke out from inside their own territory to score long-range tries, earning a 24-12 lead heading into a hard-fought final quarter and then winning several big defensive plays.

Scrumhalf TJ Perenara, in his 50th match for the Hurricanes, was also sin-binned with just over 10 minutes remaining.

Perenara had scored the only try of the first spell, but the boot of Rebels fullback Mike Harris proved the difference as the Rebels disrupted the Hurricanes at the breakdowns.

After conceding an early penalty, the Hurricanes ran back a Rebels clearing kick and No.8 Victor Vito sent Perenara over in the corner to score his try. Fullback Jason Woodward added the extras from the sideline and the Hurricanes led 7-3.

Hurricanes flyhalf James Marshall caught the Rebels napping by taking a quick tap penalty inside his 22, chasing deep into Rebels territory. The Rebels scrambled in defence and cleared the danger.

Harris kicked to put the Rebels ahead 9-7 after half-an-hour.

Woodward and Harris exchanged further penalties to see out the first half.

The Hurricanes were forced to make a patient start to the second half as the Rebels continued their tactics of keeping ball in hand and building multiple phases.

Rebels hooker Pat Leafa soon broke through the defensive line but spilled the ball forward. The Hurricanes counterattacked through Woodward who booted the ball down field for the chasers to pour through.

The Hurricanes won a penalty, kicked for the corner and were soon rewarded with their second try of the match to wing Cory Jane in the corner. Woodward calmly slotted the sideline conversion and the Hurricanes now led 17-12.

The Rebels pressed back on to the ascendancy with another long period with ball in hand. The Hurricanes defended stoutly and waited for the turnover, which came for flyhalf Marshall to boot ahead up past halfway.

The ball sat up perfectly for the Hurricanes players and openside flank Callum Gibbins galloped away to score his maiden Super Rugby try. Woodward added the extras, extending the Hurricanes' lead to 24-12.

The Hurricanes made a terrific try-saving tackle on Rebels inside centre Mitch Inman after an attacking scrum a little while later. Inman was held up over the line by Perenara and Victor Vito.

The Rebels maintained the pressure, leading to Perenara being sin-binned on his own line.

The Hurricanes dug deep and clawed their way out of danger. Eventually, a Marshall stab kick was regathered by replacement wing Nehe Milner-Skudder who linked up with replacement prop Chris Eves to almost rein in a tough inside pass and score.

Their bonus point try came soon after, with Milner-Skudder powering over to make it 29-12.

Milner-Skudder made then added the icing on the win with the final play of the game, when he found himself on the end of the chain to score in the corner in front of the players' tunnel.

The Hurricanes host the Stormers in Wellington next Friday in their Easter weekend fixture.

Man of the match: Mike Harris was steady and Scott Higginbotham worked hard. But the real class was in the Hurricanes team. Jason Woodward was a rock at the back, Conrad Smith was the team's glue, again, TJ Perenara did well until he was yellow-carded late in the match, Victor Vito was busy and good value and James Broadhurst had another solid outing. However, our award goes to Hurricanes wing Matt Proctor, who made a number of crucial try-saving tackles and impressed with his work off the ball.
