Week Two of the Super 15 season gave us a lot more than week one. Perhaps it was ring rust in the first one. The weather had an affect on our first game of the weekend but still was no excuse for the Blues failing away at the Chiefs going down Chiefs 29-14 Blues. Next up was the Rebels and we do not know why we tipped them to win against the Waratahs perhaps just being nice to the new kids on the block. Whatever they took a pounding with missed tackles letting the Tahs in for a comfortable win Rebels 19-35 Waratahs. The last game on Friday was better for us as our tip the Hurricanes held on to beat the Lions in Johannesburg 28-30, this was not the highest standard but had plenty of excitement.
Saturday opened with our biggest shock of the weekend as the Highlanders did for the Crusaders under the roof in Dunedin. Highlanders 27-24 Crusaders another one wrong for us. We ended the weekend with three correct calls as the Cheetahs went down 19-51 to the rampant Bulls, The Reds did for the Force by 35-20 and finally the Stormers did for the Sharks in a tight tussle 15-12.
