My sense was of an odd, rambling kind of weekend in Super Rugby, with one legit upset (Bulls over Saders) and another mild surprise (Landers over Stomps). That was how I was expecting it to happen, I haven't seen what the bookies were saying.

  • The Chiefs continue to get away with their penalty-laden game style, with SBW and Cherry Blossom Michael Leitch leading the way.
  • The Shorks ground out a much needed win in Natal over Higgers and the Force, led by tries from SP Marais and Lwazi Mvovo.
  • Schalk Burger had a stormer for the Stormers in his 100th SR appearance, but they fell to the Clan and suddenly seem a little tarnished after their brave start to the campaign.
  • George Moala, who has sentencing for a serious assault incident hanging over his head, was the top performer for the Blues as they fell to the Tahs who look better each week.
  • The Canes continue undefeated (though some might argue they have haven't really been tested yet). Backrowers Callum Gibbins of Manawatu and Victor Vito led the way.

The Individual Match Top Tens:

  • Three of the seven matches had a MotM from the losing side.

The Updated In Form Position Lists:

  • The Brumbies were on their bye week and they have many players in the list, all of who naturally slipped a bit. Only Nic White held his top spot from them.
  • Many Springboks were also rested, which saw them lose a bit of ground also.
  • There is a new leader on the prop, hooker, centre and wing lists.
  • Four of the five South African franchises have their fullback in the top ten. With only the Cheetahs missing. :?
  • Tahs 3, Chiefs 2, Bulls, Lions, Brumbies, Highlanders, Sharks have one top player each.
  • Matt Symons claims top lock spot days after signing a deal to return to England to play with London Irish after Super Rugby ends.
