06 Aug 2016

Spare a thought for the Lions... a bridge too far! They tried, but made too many mistakes tonight. Too early to discuss the 'B' team to Argentina? They could have had a home final remember. 

Barrett was superb for the Hurricanes.

79' - Hurricanes play down the clock and that's it!

They are the 2016 SUPER RUGBY CHAMPIONS!

06 Aug 2016

78' - Penalty to the Hurricanes. Barrett will relieve some pressure.

He has been sensational again today. Surely he must get the nod for All Black flyhalf.

76' - The mistakes continue for the Lions, this time an attacking lineout throw is not straight. 

06 Aug 2016

75' - One final push from the Lions, they are 10m from the Hurricanes line.

06 Aug 2016

68' - TRY to the Hurricanes!

The Lions won the lineout but couldn't control, the ball went over the try line and Barrett snuck in front of Jantjies to score. 

He converts his own try.
