The Drawing Board (13/07/2012)

Hello and welcome to Who’s Playing Who’s weekly rugby blog. This week is the final week of action for the round robin phase of the 2012 Super Rugby season and we still have eight teams who can get into playoff spots.  The Chiefs and the Stormers are the only teams that are certain to make the playoffs, as they have won the NZ and South African conferences respectively. Both these sides will be battling for top spot in the ladder though, as they are only separated by a point at this stage.  The Brumbies, Crusaders, Bulls, Sharks, Reds and Hurricanes probably need a bonus point victory to get into the playoff spots.

The Drawing Board (23/06/2012)

Welcome to Who’s Playing Who?’s weekly rugby blog. This week saw round two of the northern hemisphere tours to the southern hemisphere. The ledger still stands at 2 wins to the north, and 8 to the southern sides. However, this does not paint the whole picture of the weekend, as the difference between the sides wasn’t that great. The scorelines were often quite tight, with the games only really being decided in the dying moments of the game. Read more…

The Drawing Board (15/6/2012)

Hello and welcome to Who’s Playing Who?’s weekly rugby blog. This week saw the first ever break in Super Rugby history for the internationals. So not that many games played over the weekend, but they were high quality none the less. The northern hemisphere teams are currently undertaking tours of each of the southern hemisphere countries, which is a step in the right direction for me. This allows for more drama to unfold during the course of the series, and gives teams a chance to work each other out over a few weeks. Well done whoever had the foresight to bring these back.

The Drawing Board (08/06/2012)

Hello and welcome to Who’s playing Who?’s weekly rugby blog. Super rugby takes a break for this week as the June internationals take place. This will allow teams to relax and recuperate. There will be friendly games going on as well during this time, as teams look to keep their fitness up. However, the main focus for those not involved in the internationals will be to rest and get over any niggles that they may have. Read more…
