#NovedadesAPleno Misión (casi) imposible: @jaguaresarg afrontará los cuartos de final ante uno de los equipos que mejor récord tiene como local. @lionsrugbyunion disputó 28 partidos desde 2016 en Johannesburgo y ganó 23. ¿Las derrotas? Siempre con neozelandeses: tres con @crusadersrugbyteam (una final) y las otras frente a @hurricanesrugby y @bluesrugbyteam. ¿Podrán los argentinos? #Rugby#SuperRugby#PlayOffs#LIOvJAG
Huge congratulations to our boys Alex Newsome, Lalakai Foketi, Kurtley Beale, Mack Mason, Tom Staniforth, Ryan Mcauley and Cody Walker on reaching the Super Rugby Quarter finals for the Waratahs! The Waratahs finished up in 3rd place and will take on the Highlanders on Saturday in Sydney.
Another big congratulations to our beasts Jack Maddocks, Connal McInerney and former beastie legend Jono Lance on a terrific Super Rugby season with The Melbourne Rebels, Brumbies and Queensland Reds. Both Jack and Connal were in with a chance to make the finals going into the final round of the season. Jono will be leaving Queensland and joining the Worcester Warriors for their 2018-2019 season.
Good luck boys! #yearofthebeast#allin#shuteshield#finalsfooty#waratahs#reds#brumbies#superrugby @codywalks16 @connal_m @tomstaniforth94 @ryan_mccauleyy @mackmason @kurtley_beale @lalakaifoketi @alnewso @jonno_lance @jmad_badman @nswwaratahs @shuteshield @redsrugby @melbournerebels @worcswarriors
#SuperRugby#LIOvJAG ¡Destino Johannesburgo! Los @JaguaresARG dejaron Durban y viajaron hacia la principal ciudad sudafricana para preparar el gran partido @Lionsrugbyunion del próximo sábado en el Ellis Park. Los argentinos cambiaron su rutina inicial buscando aclimatarse a un factor externo que también jugará su partido: la altura. #VamosJaguares 🏉🐅🇦🇷💪
It’s was an amazing day out for @Vodacom #Tries4Smiles beneficiary and @SmileFoundationSA mascot Corné Peenz. Not only did he run out with his favourite team, but he celebrated with them when they won the South African Conference of the Vodacom #SuperRugby tournament.

@penrithpanthers ❌ @theparraeels ❌ @gwsgiants ✔️ @nswwaratahs ❌ @sydneyswans ✔️
1. The @penrithpanthers lads have crushed back to earth last Friday night with a cruel loss against the lads in the shire! Disappointing loss lads!
2. The @theparraeels lads loss on a heartbreaker against the Knights also last Friday night! Disappointing and heartbreaking!
3. On Saturday night the @gwsgiants lads won a tight and hard fought game against the 2017 premiers! Great game to watch!
4. Also on Saturday night the @nswwaratahs lads last their final game of the regular season but the good news they are in the finals and have a home final but the bad news it’s a do or die game for the lads! C’mon lads let’s win this!
5. The @sydneyswans lads have a close game yesterday (Sunday in Australia) and finally they won a game after a slight slump and they edged North Melbourne by a single goal! Well done lads!
The Reds ended their season on Friday night with a good win against the Jaguares.
The Reds ran in 7 tries to 2 with the Jaguares running in both tries in the last 10 minutes.
The Reds managed to win 6 from 16 games. Interestingly there were 5 other teams with only 6 or 7 wins for the season, however, the bonus points made all the difference at the end with the Reds ending third last on the table. The Sharks only won 7 games and made it through to the quarterfinals next week based on bonus points and a better for and against than the Rebels.
Despite their season being over there’s plenty for the Reds to smile about including having 6 of their players in the Wallabies squad and all between 21-24 years of age. .
Thorn’s belief in his young players together with some experienced players is a good combination that will eventually pay off. They’ll lose key players including Kane Douglas, Jono Lance and George Smith to Europe next season.
