Highlanders 26 - Waratahs 10
What an unexpected spectacular start to round 12. The Highlanders played superbly. They whipped out their A game in bad conditions and beat the Tahs, leaving them heartbroken as their chances run out to make play-offs.
Stormers 42 - Crusaders 14
Wow! The Stormers smashed the Crusaders. The Crusaders were simply outplayed and yet again denied a bonus point. The men from Cape Town made history and have their eyes firmly on a spot in the semi finals.
Hurricanes 33 - Chiefs 27
The Canes just came out of nowhere and pulled the carpet out under the Chiefs with those two late tries. The Chiefs seemed confident and in control, but the Canes are desperately keeping their chances alive.
Brumbies 32 - Reds 12
The Reds lost their magic winning sparkle as they were pray to the Brumbies. An outstanding performance from the Brumbies. They had a brilliant game and made the high flying Reds look like frustrated amateurs.
Cheetahs 36 - Blues 32
Last week the Cheetahs managed to win and this week they make history by winning the Blue’s for the first time ever. That first try in 150 seconds was amazing. The Blue’s just battled to focus and sadly the Cheetahs made them suffer for their errors and ended their play off hopes.
Force 33 - Lions 12
Lions Captain Cobus Grobbelaar says they can’t give up! How about waking up and face the fact that they have lost 11 games and then doing something about it!! The Force played for some pride and did a great job, nearly picking up a bonus point.
Bulls 27 - Sharks 19
A sold out and rainy Loftus hosted the final game for the weekend. It was a true South African clash with the Springbok forwards battling out the powerful scrums. The Sharks just couldn’t hang in there as the Bulls pulled themselves together during the 2nd half, aiming for a home final.
