Super 14 rugby season under way this weekend...

The southern hemisphere SANZA professional Super 14 rugby season commenced last evening and this morning NZ time.

The five NZ and four Australian franchises played off against each other, while the South Africans did the same back in the republic.

The seven times champions Crusaders from the top of the South Island and Canterbury narrowly but decisive beat the Chiefs from the Waikato and Bay of Plenty area. Anew coach in Todd Blackadder for the champs; long time coach Robbie deans now coaches the Australian Wallabies test side.

The Brumbies from ACT won a close encounter with the southern men of Otago/Southland. The Waratahs from NSW dealt to the central Hurricanes, and the northern Blues finished off the West Australian Force in Perth.
