Team of the Week: Hurricane warning

The Hurricanes put out a big warning to other competitors with their rout of the Force, unsurprisingly they feature heavily in Rugby365's team of the week.

 

The likes of All Blacks Julian Savea, Ma'a Nonu and Beauden Barrett are never to far away from a impressive performance when the Hurricanes are on song.

 

But this week, even the unsung heroes such as Brad Shields and Mark Abbott also put their hands up to be counted.

 

The Chiefs were the other big winners of the weekend when they hammered the Crusaders for a record score.

 

Again, Its not surprising to see the bright shinning star that is Sonny Bill Williams up there, but rising stars Charlie Ngatai and Matt Symons also make their way into the team.

 

In saying that, there was heated debate between Ngatai and Tevita Kuridrani in the office with only a coin-flip able to decide the outcome.

 

Team of the Week: Super Rugby, Round Three:

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning15 – Willie le Roux (Cheetahs): Impressed in Round One with his tactical kicking and looked to be back to his all-round best last week.

Bubbling under: Ben Smith (Highlanders)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning14 – Cornal Hendricks (Cheetahs): Did what he does best by finishing off two great tries after forcing his way into the starting line-up

Bubbling under: Waisake Naholo (Highlanders)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning13 – Charlie Ngatai (Chiefs): Has looked impressive for the Chiefs with either No.12 or No.13 on his back all season long.

Bubbling Under: Tevita Kuridrani (Brumbies)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning12 – Sonny Bill Williams (Chiefs): There is no denying the class of this man, a truly phenomenal athlete.

Bubbling under: Ma'a Nonu (Hurricanes)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning11 – Julian Savea (Hurricanes): An incredible performance from the All Black who is being compared to the great Jonah Lomu.

Bubbling under: Patrick Osborne (Highlanders)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning10 – Beauden Barrett (Hurricanes): When the Hurricanes are firing, and points are flowing, you can be sure that this guy has something to do with it.

Bubbling under: Aaron Cruden (Chiefs)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning9 – Will Genia (Reds): Started the game like a house on fire, sniping around the ruck and linking well with the creative James O'Connor.

Bubbling under: Aaron Smith (Highlanders)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning8 – Jerome Kaino (Blues): A real trooper for a the failing Blues, looks to lead from the front whenever he takes the field.

Bubbling under: Warren Whiteley (Lions)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning7 – Brad Shields (Hurricanes): A real tough character, provides some grunt and abrasion for the Hurricane pack.

Bubbling under: Pieter Labuschagne (Bulls)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning6 – Adam Thomson (Reds): Another one who is giving an edge to his team. The Reds have been missing an all-action man like Thomson.

Bubbling under: Jean Cook (Cheetahs)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning5 – Patrick Tuipulotu (Blues): Was a tower of strength for the Blues, worked hard in the line-outs and was effective around the park.

Bubbling under: Victor Matfield (Bulls)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning4 – Matt Symons (Chiefs): Although it did not looked like the Chiefs needed it, he was a huge factor in their defence against the Crusaders as he racked up 16 tackles.

Bubbling under: Mark Abbott (Hurricanes)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning3 – Coenie Oosthuizen (Cheetahs): He looks to be getting the form that made him such a hit a few years back. Always a good carrier but his scrums at tighthead look solid.

Bubbling under: Vincent Koch (Stormers)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning2 – Dane Coles (Hurricanes): By far one of the most mobile and versatile hookers, adds another string to the Hurricanes already potent attack.

Bubbling under: Ardriaan Strauss (Bulls)

 

 

Team of the Week: Hurricane warning1 – Steven Kitshoff (Stormers): Coming back from injury he has looked solid and eager, links up well with fellow front row forward, Vincent Koch.

Bubbling under: Scott Sio (Brumbies)
