Blues vs Highlanders – Super Rugby Pacific
That wraps up Tribe’s coverage of this one, with the Blues too strong in the second 40 running away with this game. We are just getting started in round 4 of Super Rugby pacific, with the Rebels and Brumbies coming right up.
The Highlanders will be far from happy! They had this game for the taking after the first half, but went to sleep to start the second 40 as the Blues ran riot. Their defence went to sleep as the Blues were able to find space especially out wide with some razzle dazzle footy.
Their forwards who were dominate in the first 40, struggled to match the Blues, especially in close range to the breakdown as the hosts were able to find metres down there. It doesn’t matter how the first half went, it is chalked up as another lost to the Highlanders as their struggles in 2022 carry on.
All over here in what was a classic game of two halves. The Blues were hopeless in the first half as the Highlanders got on the front foot. However it was a different Blues side that came out in the second 40, with the combination of Perofeta and Sullivan lifting their side back into the game.
Their forwards really aimed up in the middle of the paddock, with a strong effort from youngster Taine Plumtree a real standout while the usual likes of Papalii and Sotutu where outstanding. The Blues nearly went to sleep again to finish that game, but this week managed to hold their nerve and get the W with ease in the end.
