Sunwolves v Hurricanes (Result)



It was the massacre of Tokyo when the Hurricanes demolished the Sunwolves on Saturday with 83-17.

The Hurricanes scored tries at will with no answer from Sunwolves as they got pushed around on the field.

With seven tries in the first half the Hurricanes had full control over the match.

The Sunwolves did manage to score a try in the first half to get on the board but were dominated and controlled by the defending champions throughout the half.

The handling skills and speed was just too much for the Sunwolves who is simple not on the standard of Super Rugby.

When the Sunwolves got the ball in the first half they also kicked the ball too much to try and put the ball behind the Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes made 429 meters against the 126 of the Sunwolves and with a tackle success rate of only 60% the Sunwolves could not stop the Hurricanes attack

It took the Hurricanes the better of two minutes to reach 50 in the second half and keep the Sunwolves on the back foot.

The Hurricanes did not let up and soon it has become an embarrassment for the Sunwolves.

The Sunwolves defense was as poor one have seen and they were forcing passes that was not there which just gave tries to the Hurricanes on a plate.

The Suwolves had some more ball in hand in the last 10 minutes and scored their second try and kept the pressure on the Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes also lost a player with a yellow card for a tackle with no arms which gave the Sunwolves an extra man advantage.

They did manage to score their third try with minutes to go in the game to get their score to 17 points.
