Super Rugby Team of the Week 14
Our panel is finally back together again, and although there has been much negativity surrounding other areas of Super Rugby this weekend, our team of armchair specialists somehow managed to pick a Super Rugby Team of the Week.
The Stormers, unfortunately, started off the disappointment this weekend, as they failed to see off a tough Sunwolves outfit in Hong Kong. The Cape side was beaten in the last few minutes of the match, which handed coach Robbie Fleck yet another loss on the road.
The Sharks and the Lions kept the flag high as they managed to win their games at home against the Chiefs and the Brumbies.
South African Rugby audiences also witnessed the sad state of affairs in the Supersport studio after the Lions’ encounter, as Former Springbok Ashwin Willemse calmly walked out during a live broadcast after feeling undermined by his peers Nick Mallet and Naas Botha in the studio.
On Sunday morning, the Bulls sadly followed the Stormers suit and decided to put in an awful display against the Jaguares in Argentina. The men from Pretoria were heavily beaten on the road, and it is unfortunate because things were looking good for John Mitchell’s men.
Be that as it may, here’s our panel’s choices for this week.
