NZ Rugby the Winner on the Day

The Auckland Blues emerged victorious in a NZ dominated Super 12 competition. The ACT Brumbies were the only non-NZ team to scrape into the semi-finals. The final saw Auckland beat defending champions the Canterbury Crusaders 21-17. Southern Hemisphere domination didn’t immediately translate globally though, as the ABs were beaten 15-13 b resilient England on 14th June in the World Cup year season opener. In the subsequent weeks they picked up victories over the Welsh (55-3) and French (31-23).
