Are the Hurricanes pretenders in 2009?
Definitely - no quality in the number 10 jumper. Won't make the semi's

Indeed - possible semi-finalists, but will definitely choke if they make it that far

Affirmitive - too inconsistent at home, these guys just aren't the real deal

Yes - 19-0 down at home to the Warratahs after 29 minutes. They are an embarrassment

Definitely not, you cant judge them just on that 1 performance. They eventually only lost by 4 so not to bad. Given the quality of the Waratahs its still a reasonable performance. Im expecting them to really get into form in the coming weeks.

By the looks of it the Canes are off the pace a little. The teams that have looked go this week are the Crusaders aswell as a good performance by the Lions. Every team has been scratchy, I cant believe anyone didnt give the Tahs a show remember they came 3rd i think last year.

Crusaders, Sharks, Tahs and the Brumbies for me

Yeah, the hurricanes have a good squad so I think they'll still make it. Waratahs 5th and blues 6th

Sbw nah Lions WONT but will be good if they do. Nah Hurricanes might come 4th or 5th

This is how It looks at the moment

1. Crusaders
2. Waratahs
3. Sharks (Havent played but Tahs and Sharks may change positions)
4. Hurricanes (50/50 terrible start but will need to change their ways)

How can you have the Hurricanes in there over the Blues - embarrassing home loss to the Warratahs first up, versus a tough, determined, grinding win for the Blues away to the Force?

Ah how could you judge it on the first game, Canes seem to start badly every year... In 08 they lost to the Waratahs, in '07 they lost to the Reds and now this year they lose to the Tahs again...They are up against the weakest of the NZ sides, the Highlanders, at home next week and should beat them...The win will give them the morale boost and the wins will come flooding in...also they were missing 3 of their stars last match, Smith, Weepu and Hore.

'09 is still going to be the year of the Hurricane

Oh yeah missed the last 2 players. Not a favourite to take it out now with a loss like that. Seems with the loss of a lot of players the Crusaders look the best. Can someone please give me scores for the Reds game and sharks game?

The Blues will go alright for the first half the season then they will get too cocky and fail and end up mid table.

Hurricanes had their rough start but will win atleast 3 out of the next four games as they host the Highlanders, Bulls and Cheetahs (3 reasonably easy opponents)

My top 4 after seeing round 1 Hurricanes, Crusaders, Waratahs and Sharks.

You can twrite the canes off after 1 game if you do your a fool.

I still pick them for a top 4 finish and they are still my favourites to win the comp.
