      I'm damn sure Dolans will show it, if they are open that time.

          Irrespective of which side wins it in the end, this is an absolutely fantastic game.

              Sorry, but I'm not going to be a spoiler.

              But well done to the winning team! What a fantastic win!

                    dodgy try proved crucial

                    missed tackles hurricanes 19%, highlanders 16%.... 52 missed tackles in the game.

                    33 offloads, hooray!.... 36 turnovers, boooo! you'd get savaged for playing like that in the NH.

                      Do you watch rugby for statistics or for entertainment? Because a spectacle like that one is cheapened by statistics.

                      Name two NH teams that could play a game as entertaining as that one was.

                      PS - agree about dodgy try; I was rather surprised that it was given, although the ball may just have touched the ground!

                        if leinster or munster played with that kind of ball security, we'd be tearing our hair out. how entertained are you when your side loses?

                          Speak for yourself. For me, rugby is entertainment and stats are for saddoes.

                          That all depends on the quality of the performance and on the opposition.

                          For example, I was delighted with the 34-all draw V Glasgow in the RDS, but much less enchanted by the performances when we beat Treviso 10 - 0 and Connacht 21 -11 also at the RDS.

                            go knock yourself out with entertainment... sport is for winning. 3 failed hurricanes turnovers resulted in scores for the highlanders. you can call that entertainment, i'll call it idiotic. they desperately needed to slow the game down.

                            seriously OD, how do you square that stance on stats with your opinion of Joe S? he is the ultimate in playing rugby by numbers. he doesn't allow an offload. there were 33 in today's game. i like Joe, because I like winning. do you not like him because his sides are not entertaining?

                              disappointed I couldn't see this, read during the week the first tranche of tickets that went on sale for that game sold in 59 seconds, made me think of a half filled Twickenham and grimace.
                              I am the million man.

                                capacity of 35k versus 82k. one team at home. both teams from the hosting country. super rugby attendances are not usually great.
