The Hurricanes go from prime of the desk to just about no probability and the Crusaders will probably be respiratory simpler.

Right here’re the Hurricanes’ rankings.

1. Xavier Numia – 6.5

Scrum was stable and he had the higher of Alaalatoa early. For the primary Brumbies attempt he made the choice to assault the ball at an already fashioned ruck as a substitute of filling the pillar defence place permitting halfback Lonergan to go over. Good runs within the thirty third and thirty eighth minutes however missed Ikitau and let him in for the attempt. Off at 60.

2. Dane Coles – 7.5

First two line outs had been askew however third time fortunate with a reasonably easy maul attempt at 17 minutes. All the time up for a struggle, prime metres for a ahead within the recreation, 13 tackles and a couple of turnovers. Off at 64.

Lineout was atrocious however he managed to get a steal again within the thirty eighth minute. Additionally poor execution at 71 minutes the place he couldn’t management line out ball which led to a Brumbies penalty. His tackling was potent, 17 of them and a boomer on Kata within the forty sixth minute that closed down an assault.

5. Scott Scrafton – 6

Offside at 7 minutes after some Brumbies entrance foot. Obtained a nasty lower beneath the attention however saved on going. Took 3 takes within the line out beneath a variety of stress being the “tall” man. Off at 52.

6. Devan Flanders – 6.5

I’ve been impressed with Flanders, he’s made big strides within the final 12 months or two. He’s gone from cherubic college boy to totally jacked professional rugby participant. 14 tackles and a few line out takes, an excellent shift within the tight/free, till he crocked his ankle and off at 55.

7. Du PLessis Kirifi – 4.5

He’s bought to repair his indiscipline. From his incapability to observe whether or not he’s being held or not, his tackling method (the place he was unfortunate that Swain dropped) however then pushing the digicam away as he sat down for ten minutes. It’s turning into an enormous downside and the administration must assess whether or not the staff can deal with the mercurial behaviour in trade for his full-on aggression. Off at 60.

8. Ardie Savea – 7.5

Ardie stepped as much as meet Valetini within the second minute to extract a knock on in touch and put the large runner in his place.

9. Luke Campbell – 6.5

Regarded snug and was helped by the Canes’ scrum ascendency. Off at 60.

10. Ruben Love – 5.5

11. Salesi Rayasi – 5.5

Liked the run at 14 minutes the place he waded by 3-4 defenders. Penalised a few instances within the deal with and ghosting behind one among his teammates and bought sloppier because the scoreboard stress constructed.

12. Ngani Laumape – 5.5

Highly effective participant and seemed like he was within the temper early however then drifted. Do Canes’ followers get a bit aggravated when he begins placing it on the boot when placing the foot down and operating laborious is an choice? Then conceded a vital penalty at 67 minutes to provide the Brumbies an opportunity for factors.

13. Billy Proctor – 6.5

Could be the invisible man on assault however in Canberra he featured with the ball in hand very often and made a distinction, even at first receiver a few instances. Good defensive stress at 46 and an excellent all spherical recreation from the centre.

14. Julian Savea – 7.5
Superior first touches together with a blistering 30 metres blast down the correct flank and a laser go to to Laumape, a ten metre stampede in midfield within the fifth and an enormous acquire in midfield at 48. Didn’t cease making an attempt and was second solely to Tom Banks for metres gained.

15. Jordie Barrett – 5

Was a match the place the fullback didn’t get the rub of the inexperienced. Luxurious spin and pivot to elude Kata within the forty ninth minute beneath some acid in his 22. Underneath 50% from the kicking tee and couldn’t orchestrate the win from first receiver after Love went off.


16. Ricky Riccitelli – 4

On at 64. Cocked up first line out at a vital time and had to surrender a penalty for holding on after mopping up a messy line out.
