I'm not sure it's just an Australian thing, David, it might just have been a tight round, of which we'll probably see more of as we get closer to the playoffs.
There were only 17 tries scored in the seven matches in Round 15 - four NZ sides scored 5 tries; five Aust sides scored 5 tries, and four SA sides scored 7 tries. In fact, of the 17 scored, the Chiefs, Rebels and Cheetahs account for nine of them. 11 other teams could only score eight tries between of them.
It was just one of those rounds...

Let's hope that plays out on Saturday, EP ;-)
You know they were appointed two weeks ago, Peter?
