April 6 (Reuters) – Super Rugby highlights from week eight:
HURRICANES 38 SHARKS 37
The New Zealand conference leaders were trailing by nine points with two minutes remaining but Ihaia West slotted tour phượng hoàng cổ trấn a penalty before the Hurricanes pack built a platform for Laumape to romp across the line for his second try of the night.
Flyhalf West, promoted to start after Beauden Barrett failed a late fitness test, still needed to add the conversion to give 2016 champions their fifth straight win and he nervelessly steered the ball between the posts to the delight of the crowd.
The Durban-based Sharks, picking up where they left off in their 63-40 win over the Blues in Auckland last week, scored four tries in a brilliant display of aggressive forward play and powerful running from the backline.
