Otago Daily Times Online rugby writer Jeff Cheshire looks
at some key points from the Highlanders 27-20 loss to the
Hurricanes at Westpac Stadium on Friday night.
Highlanders coach Jamie Joseph says his side is still well
alive in this year's competition, but felt some missed
tackles cost it in the loss in Wellington last night.
See how the action unfolded in the Highlanders' Super Rugby
game against the Hurricanes at Westpac Stadium in Wellington.
The Highlanders have kept faith with most of the side which
did the deed over the Crusaders and will look for a New
Zealand hat trick tomorrow night in Wellington.
Tom Franklin and Dan Lienert-Brown are the two changes to the
Highlanders' starting XV for Friday's match against the
Hurricanes in Wellington.
