The Super 14 is nearing it's final stages as the race for home semis intensifies. Theres been some incredible action over the past few months, so today we've got the Plays of the Month, from the Australian Rugby Club , for both March and April.
In March the Reds began their climb up the ladder as they came to form despite losing injured lock James Horwill. Up stepped young Will Genia, who combined with playmaker Quade Cooper, has been at the forefront of their success so far.
So as to be expected, being a top performing Aussie side, theyre featured prominently in both clips. Theyre currently 4th on the log, with the Waratahs and Brumbies not too far behind.
The Waratahs themselves produced two of the biggest hits in March, with Will Caldwell and Rob Horn both making huge tackles, while Rene Ranger for the Blues smoked Christian Lealiifano. Benson Stanley is also there, doing what weve come to expect from him in the midfield.
April provided a few big upsets, as well as some poor goal kicking and a smattering of bizarre incidents. The tries over the past two months were superb though, as the standard of the attacking play was outstanding with top quality tries being scored each weekend.
Theres always the few naysayers who like to question the defence, but when the balls being shifted as fast and offloaded as accurately as it is, it makes it pretty damn difficult to defend against for 80 minutes.
Great tries, good looking girls, and plenty of entertainment as usual in this double dose of the Super 14 Plays of the Month. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the razzle dazzle.
