  • Captain Conrad to hit century

    It’s amazing to think that having made his Super Rugby debut in 2004, it has taken Conrad Smith 10 years to rack up his 100th game for the Hurricanes.

  • Do NZ teams take cheap shots?

    Stormers captain Jean de Villiers has provided a frank view that he believes New Zealand sides are guilty of unnecessary and cheap infringements.

  • Blues go young at No 10

    The Blues have put their faith in an untried 20-year-old – throwing Simon Hickey the No 10 shirt in round two. Is it inspired, or does it smack of desperation?

  • Franks brings up 100

    Congratulations to Ben Franks (hopefully it’s not bad luck to say so before the event) on playing his 100th Super Rugby game.

    300: Rise of an Empire is coming to cinemas March 6, and Warner Bros. Pictures and NZ Rugby World are giving you the chance to WIN one of 5 prize packs!

  • Fast & Furious

  • The big no show

    Super Rugby in New Zealand is likely to be missing a host of All Black stars when it kicks off on February 21.

  • US test in limbo
