Week 14 action will see the 10th-placed Melbourne Rebels try and take their current winning streak to three games on the trot when they travel to the Windy City to face Wellington Hurricanes. Join us for live scores and commentary from 3.30pm AEST.
After last weekend’s thrilling one-point victory over the Western Force in Perth, the Rebels will hoping to score a win against the ninth-placed Hurricanes at Westpac Stadium in Wellington.
The newest Aussie franchise looked deadly with Kurtley Beale once again showing his talent in the number 10 jersey, providing them with the difference over a hard-working Force side.
The Hurricanes are coming off a loss at home to Jake White’s stampeding Brumbies and have been searching desperately for consistency.
The likes of young guns Andre Taylor and Julian Savea have been in scintillating form this season but the Hurricanes have struggled to find rhythm as a unit, and have lost as many games as they have won.
These two sides have only met once before, when the Rebels produced a surprise win to score 42 points to the Hurricanes’ 25 on that occasion.
While neither side has any real hope of challenging for the finals both are capable of enterprising rugby on their day and if they are on song, this one could ignite.
Can the Rebels continue a late-season surge as they build toward the 2013 season? Find out as we cover the action with live scores and commentary from 3.30pm AEST and if you’re watching, give us your thoughts in the space below.
