Half Time

  • 40
The half-time siren goes off, and we have a reset scrum on the Waratahs 5 metre line still being played out, before the guys are allowed back into the sheds to rehydrate. Waratahs absorb the pressure, and it's 8-8 at the break.
  • 39
The Brumbies are relentless however, and threaten to score once again. Unluckily for them, it's lost forward inches before the try-line.
  • 37
Brumbies threaten to score through some enterprising interplay, but the touchline beats Joe Tomane and the movement is killed.

  • 33
Penalty on halfway against the Brumbies for side-entry at the ruck, gives Beale the opportunity to set his side up for an attacking line-out inside the Brumbies' half.

  • 26
Things seem to have settled down somewhat, with neither side threatening to create anything of any significance. Play is brought back to halfway for a scrum with the put-in to the Waratahs. From the resulting play off the back of the scrum, Kurtley Beale cops a MASSIVE hit. But he shrugs it off.
  • 22
The conversion attempt is missed, with the score now sitting at 8-5 to the Brumbies.
  • 21
And it's a try to the Waratahs, after they stretch the Brumbies defence and Israel Folau easily beats a couple of tackles to sneak through for a try.
  • 20
A penalty against Brumbies skipper David Pocock for taking out the halfback brings the play inside the Brumbies' 22 with a line-out to the Waratahs, just outside the 5 metre line.
  • 17
Like any other big derby, there is no love lost here between these two sides. Big, uncompromising hits seem to be the order of the day.
  • 16
Some interplay between the teams, and what "some" might call aimless kicking, results in an error by Beale for a line-out to the Brumbies inside the Waratahs half. Brumbies try to lay a platform off a rolling maul from the line-out, but nothing comes of it.
  • 14
Will Skelton returns to the field from the cooler, and he's looking to make an impact straight away to make up for his yellow card.
  • 11
And the Waratahs finally get a favourable penalty, in a kickable position for Kurtley Beale. A chance to relieve some early pressure for his side... and he misses! The kick sails slightly to the right of the posts and the score remains unchanged.
  • 9
Christian Lealiifano fails to convert his own try though, and the score hovers at 8-0.
  • 8
And Christian Lealiifano crosses the whitewash for the first try of the game!
  • 7
Both sides testing the referee early on, but Marius van der Westhuizen is having none of it.
  • 6
Brumbies playing with serious intent here, forcing the Waratahs to scramble into making silly errors. Another high tackle by the Waratahs, this time through Folau, gets them a serious talking to, and warning by the ref. No yellow card though, luckily for them.
  • 4
Early yellow against the Waratahs here, with Will Skelton sent off to the cooler for his indiscretions on the pitch. High tackles will not fly, it seems, in no way, shape or form.
  • 2
Brumbies co-captain Christian Lealiifano slots an early penalty for his side to take the score to 3-0.
  • 1
Kurtley Beale gets us underway with the kick-off to the receiving Brumbies. An early penalty against the Waratahs relieves some pressure, and Matt Toomua rakes the ball across field for a great touch-finder.
  • -5
Five minutes to kick-off, and the Brumbies will be hoping to kill their losing streak against the Waratahs here. Four on the trot for the Waratahs will give them loads of confidence ahead of the opening whistle, but by all indications so far, the Brumbies seem to be a different outfit this year.
  • -10
Conditions in Canberra are fair for a great game of rugby - temp is currently at 29 degrees C, with a bit of humidity in the air that could possibly make the pill a bit slippery. Hopefully it doesn't affect the ball handling too much, in what will already be a tough, physical encounter.
  • -15
Last week the Brumbies absolutely blew the Hurricanes off the park, but if history is any indication, they are in for a bit of a challenge against the Waratahs in this week's fixture. The head-to-head between Pocock and Hooper will be a major highlight of this game, for sure.

S18 PREVIEW: ROUND TWO, PART ONE

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 21:06

IN THE SPOTLIGHT. Jan de Koning looks at the Friday matches in Part One of Super Rugby's Round Two.

Last week it was South Africa's big north-south derby and this week New Zealand will put on display their biggest domestic rivalry - the Crusaders versus the Blues.

It dates back many decades, to the days of Auckland versus Canterbury - in the NPC and even before that, the Ranfurly Shield challenge.

Between them they have also won 10 of the 20 Super Rugby titles on offer since the game turned professional in 1996.

The Blues' slump in recent years - they have not finished inside the top 10 since 2011, when they were beaten semifinalists - diluted the rivalry a bit.

However, the Blues' impressive start to the season under new coach Tana Umaga will ensure the intense rivalry is back at the top of the pops.

And from there we hop across the Tasman Sea to Canberra for Australia's biggest rivalry - the Brumbies against the Waratahs.

It used to be the Reds versus the Tahs, but the slump of the Brisbane-based franchise - the Reds have finished 13th in the last two 15-team Super Rugby seasons - means the Brumbies v Tahs is now the big deal Down Under.

We look at the Friday, March 4, matches below!


(AMI Stadium, Christchurch - Kick-off: 19,35; 06.35 GMT)

You can't ask for a better start to the weekend's action - two traditional rivals with plenty at stake.

The Blues will be determined to continue the impressive start they made under new coach Tana Umaga.

The resolve and change in attitude - from recent Blues campaigns - suggest the decision to discard John Kirwan had been the correct one.

However, they will face a Crusaders team determined to bounce back from a heartbreaking loss to the Chiefs last week - when two late tries managed to snatch victory from the Christchurch-based outfit.

Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder, despite the opening round stumble, believes his team has the makings of a team that can contest the play-offs.

Blackadder said the frustrating nature of last week's defeat prompted him to keep the same combination.

"We know that those players will only be more determined this week to take another step up," he told stuff.co.nz.

"So we want to give them the opportunity to go out there and show what they are really capable of."

He said the physicality and intent that the team showed for most of the game was fantastic.

"We felt that we were dominant in many respects for a good portion of that game," the coach added.

"That is what makes the loss even more frustrating for the players though."

The Blues are well aware of the challenge awaiting them, having to travel south and cross the Cook Strait.

"They've got a formidable forward pack and we've got a lot of respect for them, but we've got a pack of our own that's going pretty good as well," Blues No.8 Steven Luatua told stuff.co.nz.

Luatua, Preparing for his 50th match, said the Blues have a lot of confidence after last week's win.

"Against the Crusaders, if you give away too much of a lead, they're going to put you in a choke hold and it's hard to get out of," the All Black said.

"It's been a couple of years since we've won down there so that's definitely in the back of our minds.

"It's a huge challenge for us and we're excited by that."

Recent results:
2015: Crusaders won 34-11, Auckland
2015: Crusaders won 29-15, Christchurch
2014: Crusaders won 21-13, Christchurch
2014: Blues won 35-24, Auckland
2013: Crusaders won 23-3, Christchurch
2013: Blues won 34-15, Auckland

Prediction: The Crusaders have won each of their last three matches against the Blues, conceding 15 points or fewer in each of those three
games. The Crusaders opening round loss to the Chiefs means they will be aiming to avoid consecutive Super Rugby losses for the first time since Round 10, 2015. The Blues won a home Round 1 fixture for the first time since 2011 and will now be hunting for back-to-back victories in Super Rugby for the first time since Round 17, 2014. The Crusaders boasted a perfect ruck success rate last time out, winning all 40 in their match against the Chiefs in Round 1. They were the only team to maintain a 100 percent ruck success on their own ball. The Blues won 14 line-outs in the opening round, while only the fourth most of any team it was the most of any team who didn't lose a line-out in Round One. Tough to call so early in the season, but we will go with a home town win - the Crusaders to bounce back and sneak a late winner, by five points.

Teams:

Crusaders: 15 David Havili, 14 Jone Macilai, 13 Sean Wainui, 12 Kieron Fonotia, 11 Nemani Nadolo, 10 Richie Mo'unga, 9 Andy Ellis, 8 Kieran Read, 7 Tim Boys, 6 Jordan Taufua, 5 Samuel Whitelock (captain), 4 Scott Barrett, 3 Owen Franks, 2 Codie Taylor, 1 Joe Moody.
Replacements: 16 Ben Funnell, 17 Wyatt Crockett, 18 Mike Alaalatoa, 19 Jimmy Tupou, 20 Pete Samu, 21 Leon Fukofuka, 22 Ben Volavola, 23 Johnny McNicholl.
 
Blues: 15 Matt Duffie, 14 Melani Nanai, 13 Rene Ranger, 12 George Moala, 11 Tevita Li, 10 Matt McGahan, 9 Billy Guyton, 8 Steven Luatua, 7 Blake Gibson, 6 Jerome Kaino (captain), 5 Josh Bekhuis, 4 Patrick Tuipulotu, 3 Sione Mafileo, 2 Quentin MacDonald, 1 Ofa Tu'ungafasi.
Replacements: 16 James Parsons, 17 Sam Prattley, 18 Charlie Faumuina, 19 Akira Ioane, 20 Kara Pryor, 21 Bryn Hall, 22 Ihaia West, 23 Male Sa'u.

Assistant referees: Chris Pollock (New Zealand), Brendon Pickerill (New Zealand)

(GIO Stadium, Canberra - Kick-off: 19.45; 08.45 GMT)

As if Australia's two top teams going head-to-head is not enough, you have the delectable showdown between two of the game's best openside flanks.

In the absence of the now retired Richie McCaw, Michael Hooper (Waratahs) and David Pocock (Brumbies) will both look to lay claim to the title of breakdown master - not that they were ever far off.

The Wallaby teammates, Hooper and Pocock, will play crucial roles in what could be one of the more intriguing encounters of Round Two.

Their battle will set the tone for what is expected to be a real arm-wrestle between two teams with ambitions of going all the way to the Final.

Last week Pocock found himself on the wrong end of some refereeing calls, but the Brumbies have already made adjustments to their game.

Brumbies playmaker Matt Toomua confirmed that the breakdown was a focal pint this week.

Toomua - like Pocock - was yellow-carded in the second half of their 52-10 win over the Hurricanes last week for repeated breakdown offences.

He said they had reviewed the tape and found areas to improve.

"At the time we thought: 'We've never done anything wrong on the field'," he said in an interview on rugby.com.au.

"However, we looked back at the tape and to be fair Leesy [referee Andrew Lees] was pretty spot on with a few of the calls,” Toomua said.

"We don't want to take the pressure away, we want to make it a contest - but we have to do it legally."

The Brumbies, while looking to continue with the expansive element of their game, definitely have a Plan B in the bank.

"A lot of it [tries] was from set piece, not much phase play so hopefully we can get that this week," the playmaker said.

"However, if it is scrums and mauls that win the game so be it," he said.

Recent results:
2015: Waratahs won 13-10, Canberra
2015: Waratahs won 28-13, Sydney
2014: Waratahs won 26-8, Sydney (semifinal)
2014: Waratahs won 39-8, Sydney
2014: Brumbies won 28-23, Canberra
2013: Waratahs 28-22, Sydney
2013: Brumbies won 35-6, Canberra

Prediction: The Waratahs have won each of their last four matches against the Brumbies, keeping them to fewer than 14 points on each occasion. The Brumbies became the first Australian team other than the Waratahs to score 50 or more points in a Super Rugby match since 2011 when the Reds beat the Rebels 53-3; Waratahs have managed the feat twice since then. The Brumbies have won only one of their last five games immediately following a match in which they scored 50+ points. The Waratahs have won 11 of their last 13 games against Australian opposition with both defeats in that run coming against the Force. The last time the Waratahs lost to an Australian team that wasn't the Western Force was in Round Five, 2014 against the Brumbies (lost 23-28). The Waratahs scored three of their four tries in the opening half of their match against the Reds in the last round, only the Cheetahs (four) managed to score more in the opening 40 minutes. These derbies are always tough to predict early in the season, but the Brumbies certainly have the better form and they are at home, so they should be able to edge the Waratahs - and it will be by single digits.

Teams:

Brumbies: 15 Aidan Toua, 14 Henry Speight, 13 Tevita Kuridrani, 12 Matt Toomua, 11 Joe Tomane, 10 Christian Lealiifano (co-captain), 9 Tomás Cubelli, 8 Ita Vaea, 7 David Pocock, 6 Scott Fardy, 5 Sam Carter, 4 Blake Enever, 3 Ben Alexander, 2 Stephen Moore (co-captain), 1 Scott Sio.
Replacements: 16 Josh Mann-Rea, 17 Allan Alaalatoa, 18 Leslie Leulua'iali'i-Makin, 19 Jordan Smiler, 20 Jarrad Butler, 21 Michael Dowsett, 22 Andrew Smith, 23 Nigel Ah Wong.

Waratahs: 15 Israel Folau, 14 Matt Carraro, 13 Rob Horne, 12 David Horwitz, 11 Zac Guildford, 10 Kurtley Beale, 9 Nick Phipps, 8 Jed Holloway, 7 Michael Hooper (captain), 6 David Dennis, 5 Will Skelton, 4 Dean Mumm, 3 Angus Ta'avao, 2 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1 Paddy Ryan.
Replacements: 16 Tolu Latu, 17 Matt Sandell, 18 Jeremy Tilse, 19 Sam Lousi, 20 Wycliff Palu, 21 Jack Dempsey, 22 Matt Lucas, 23 Bryce Hegarty.

Referee: Marius van der Westhuizen (South Africa)

Brumbies outmuscle Tahs in arm-wrestle

Fri, 04 Mar 2016 10:38

REPORT: The Brumbies stayed the top of the Australian conference with an hard-earn 32-15 win over the Waratahs in their Super Rugby showdown in Canberra on Friday.

This was intense and unrelenting. It also had moments great excitement.

It also produced a result that was much closer than 32-15, not that the partisan people of Canberra minded at all as the Brumbies notched up their second big win in the first two matches of Super Rugby 2016.

They have now scored 84 points and 11 tries in those two matches, and against strong sides - the Hurricanes and the Waratahs.

Part of the Brumby success was the power of their pack, destroying the Waratahs at scrum time - when it counted - and rushing them off their feet at mauls at times.

The Waratahs had a nightmare start.

In four minutes they had been penalised four times, spoken to by the referee three times and had a man in the sin bin, lucky not to have a second there two minutes later.

They conceded territory twice in that time for kicking out on the full.

Yet after all their potentially suicidal infringements they were only 0-3 down when the nightmare lifted.

Christian Leali'ifano goaled the first penalty when prop Angus Ta'avao was offside - not the only time he was penalised in the match. 3-0 after just over a minute.

The player sent to the sin bin was Will Skelton for a high tackle in the fourth minute, the fourth penalty against the Waratahs in the match.

Two minutes later Israel Folau was lucky not to be sent to the sin bin for another high tackle of a gross kind.

The Brumbies mauled, bashed and scored a try as the referee allowed long advantage. Leali'ifano scored the try from about 10 metres out, when his clever feet beat three Waratahs for a delightful try - 8-0 after nine minutes.

The Brumbies were penalised and Beale missed from in front, but they were gaining the benefits of greater composure.

David Pocock was penalised, Beale kicked out and the Waratahs bashed. They went wide right where Folau was his elegant self in scoring in the right corner, as Matt Toomua tackled him - 8-5.

When Toomua kicked the ball dead, there was the first scrum of the match - after 25 minutes.

The Waratahs would probably have wished it was the last scrum of the match.

A collapse gave the Brumbies a penalty and then a line-out. They mauled and raced the maul at the Waratahs' line, where it was collapsed and Dean Mumm was sent to the sin bin. The Brumbies opted for a five-metre line-out, but David Dennis stole the ball. They had another line-out, but knocked on.

There was a just a feeling that the Brumbies could be losing composure.

When Blake Enever was penalised for a high tackle on Nick Phipps, Beale made it 8-all after 35 minutes.

The Brumbies nearly scored just before Mumm returned. They peeled around the front of a line-out and bashed. Tevita Kuridrani was close and then Tomás Cubelli was actually over the line, but lost the ball forward as Michael Hooper and Dennis tackled him.

At half-time the score was 8-all.

Early in the second half the Brumbies threatened on the left as Kuridrani burst away and gave to Joe Tomane, but a great tackle by Phipps saved the day. Leali'ifano goaled a second penalty - 11-8 after 47 minutes.

Then the Waratahs lost a golden chance to score, when the Brumbies overthrew a line-out, but as they went wide right, Folau seemed to lose concentration and the ball was lost.

But they had a penalty and turned it into an attacking line-out, peeling around the back where Skelton was close, till pressure from the Brumbies on defence enabled them to clear their lines.

The Waratahs came back but were penalised near the goal-line when Leali'ifano was first to the tackled ball.

A grubber  by Kuridrani set the Brumbies on the attack, there was an unedifying playground flare-up - which ended with a five-metre scrum to the Brumbies on the left. Tomane came in at flyhalf to take a pass from Cubelli and run over Beale and Rob Horne to score at the posts -  18-8 after 58 minutes.

From a   line-out near the half-way line Folau, now playing outside centre, broke clean through off a sharp pass by Hooper and then, when challenged, passed  inside to Phipps - who raced over for an excellent try - 18-15 after 60 minutes.

The Waratahs looked to be on a winning run, but they failed to score again.

The Brumbies did not fail.

Henry Sepight had a strong run down the right, the Brumbies bashed, the Waratahs were penalised and the Brumbies opted for a scrum five metres from the line. The Waraths were penalsied at the scrum and again the Brumbies chose a scrum. They got a strong shove on and, when the scrum disintegrated at their line, the referee awarded a penalty try - 25-15 with 11 minutes to play.

The Waratahs could have used a penalty to bring the deficit into bonus-point territory, but tried a line-out instead. They bashed and Beale dummied and went over, but TMO showed Sam Lousi obstructing Jarrad Butler and then grabbing his jersey. Instead of a try, the Waratahs were penalised.

After lots of endeavour the Waraths destroyed their own best opportunities and instead Kuridrani grubbered a long way down the left where Tomane grabbed the bouncing ball and immediately lobbed it infield, where substitute Nigel Ah Wong latched onto the ball and ran 15 metres to the posts. Toomua slippered over a drop to convert and the final whistle went.

Man of the Match: Stephen Moore despite some sloppy lineout work. His determination, ball-carrying and scrumming were remarkable.

For the Brumbies:
Tries:
Lealiifano, Tomane, Penalty try, Ah Wong
Cons: Lealiifano 2, Toomua
Pens: Lealiifano 2

For the Waratahs:
