Round Four Super Rugby 2011 Results and Highlights

Rugby Union results from the fourth round of the 2011 Super Rugby Tournament

After the fourth round of Super Rugby in 2011 only two teams remain undefeated, both South African. The Stormers beat fellow undefeated team the Highlanders and the Sharks narrowly defeated the heartbroken Rebels. The Lions finally broke their drought and lived up to the promise they’ve shown in the early rounds by defeating the Cheetahs. The Chiefs continued their drought in Wellington, narrowly losing a scrappy game against the Hurricanes. The Force nearly pulled off the upset of the round but a last minute penalty by the Blues’ Stephen Brett secured the draw. The Crusaders massacred a Brumbies team on the slide in Nelson, with winger Sean Maitland scoring a record equalling four tries. Robbie Fruean continued the dominant form that should see him playing All Blacks rugby in 2011.
