Super Rugby Trans-Tasman wrapped up this weekends matches with three entertaining clases
The New Zealand sides continued to dominate and remain unbeaten in ten matches.
Blues 48 vs Waratahs 21
A brilliant day of rugby at Eden Park. Otere Black opened the scoring with a penalty kick, minutes later Bryce Heem went over to score his first of 3 tries. Lalakai Foketi went off injured in the 24th minute what looks to be a hand injury. Tom Robinson scored midway through the half to extend the Blues lead. Angus Bell finally got the Waratahs on the board, Jake Gordon scored immediately after Bell to give the Waratahs some confidence, as they trailed by just one point. Kurt Eklund ended the half off with a try. Blues going into the break leading 22-14. Rieko Ioane opened the scoring in the second half, before Harry Johnson-Holmes was sent to the bin for multiple infringements and the Blues were awarded a penalty try thereafter. Heem completed his hattrick to secure the victory.
Chiefs 40 vs Brumbies 17
What a game from the Chiefs as they took early control over the Brumbies. The visitors seemed to have a good fight in them only a few minutes after the Chiefs' first try but it was unfortunately futile as the Chiefs continued to pile the points on against their opponents. One couldn't help but see the Chiefs' control throughout the match. The Brumbies did start to give a good fight that the Chiefs were not able to answer for but their lack of control in the beginning stages of the match came back to bite them as the deficit they had to cut into was simply too much. The Chiefs continue their winning form into another week as the Brumbies fail to realise a win in the Super Rugby Trans Tasman. Chiefs do well and win 40-19!
Reds 28 vs Crusaders 63
