What a time they must have when having dinner at their parent’s house!
3 super stars at the same table, along with 2 other brothers and 3 sisters. Beauden, Jordie and Scott all play for the New Zealand team, the All Blacks. I cannot help but wonder if there are any families in the world that can match them with such a sporting achievement?
Meanwhile, back to the rugby on Saturday. They taught the Australians a lesson with Richie Mo’unga outstanding 23 points of the 45 scored. Along with great performances from the usual stars, Aaron Smith, Sam Cane and newcomer Caleb Clarke. I believe you will be reading about Caleb Clarke in the headlines for some time. Australia and New Zealand have played each other a total of 168 times. Australia have won 44 and New Zealand 116 and 8 drawn. Next week’s game in Brisbane might be much of the same, let’s see.
Super Rugby South Africa
Not even lightning could stop the Bulls picking up a bonus point win against the Stormers this weekend. The score was 39/6 at the time of abandonment.
The Lions performed very well against the Griquas in Johannesburg with a well-deserved 61/31.
The Sharks were a too strong force for the Pumas and the match ended with 42 /19.
This coming weekend the Sharks will take on the Cheetahs in Durban. My money is on the Sharks. I believe they will be powerful upfront as well as having the home advantage.
The Griquas will entertain the Stormers and the home ground advantage may not be enough. The Stormers will be licking their wounds after the hiding they got from the Bulls.
And last but not least, the Lions are hosting the Bulls in Johannesburg. I believe the Bulls will continue their good form.
All great games to look forward to.
