Hurricanes: I'm worried

  • Hurricanes: I'm worried

No Julian Savea, no TJ Perenara and no Beauden Barrett.


I don't know about you but this game has me extremely worried.

I'm worried that a lack of x-factor players will trip the Hurricanes up in a match we all expect them to win.

You're all thinking, 'Who is this guy? This dude is crazy. We still have Ma'a, Conrad and the new kid at the back. Mate we'll be sweet.'

But what you might not realise is that the Sharks are on a four match losing streak which means they're due to win soon and the Hurricanes haven't lost since that ill-fated match in Sydney a few weeks ago that broke the unbeaten run.

So we're due to lose.

'Don't be so pessimistic,' you say.

Yeah, well, I can't help it.

Barrett has been the best first five-eighth in the competition so far (goal kicking aside) and Savea is the most dynamic wing in the game.

These two guys have been replaced by James Marshall and Matt Proctor respectively.

No disrespect to either guy, but they are a calibre below.

I'm sure it takes a lot to run the cutter in Super Rugby and although Marshall will handle it, I'm afraid he won't provide the impetus to get the Canes home.

Lastly, have you seen the Sharks front row?

The Beast, Bismarck and Jannie du Plessis.


That's a good front row.

Have you seen ours?

Ben Franks, Mots and Chris someone.

You can argue you they're all quality player until the cows come home but they're not the Beast, Bismarck and Jannie.

So yeah, did I mention I'm worried?
