1 July: Canes coach laments poor second half

Fresh from embarrassing defeats to the Crusaders and Highlanders, the Hurricanes went one worse on Saturday night. The Brumbies are unlikely to be Super Rugby finals-bound any time soon, but they were a class above the Hurricanes in Canberra. Coming into this game they'd lost 13 in a row against New Zealand opposition and won just five matches, to the Hurricanes' 10, this season. But from 12-5 down at halftime, the Brumbies kicked away to win 24-12 and put the visitors' home playoff hopes in peril. "At a number of levels it was pretty average...that's a really flat and poor performance," said coach Chris Boyd of the match. "The Brumbies had to win tonight, to keep their hopes of playoffs alive, and the second half was probably the worst half of football in my four years here."

Today In History
17 July 1943: The biggest club match in Wellington since 1939 sees the combined Poneke-Oriental side play “stirring rugby” and beat Marist Old Brothers in this match and thus capture the Jubilee Cup title. the Dominion reports that Poneke-Oriental “dominated” Marist, running out 14-8 winners. They score three tries, all through the forwards, and the margin of victory could have been greater if not for missed kicks. With five wins from five, Poneke-Oriental are unbeaten in the 1943 Jubilee Cup. The combined eastern suburbs side (merged due to WW2 and reduced player numbers) defend their title in 1944.
