This weekend is the second round of Super Rugby 2011. Because of the tragic Christchurch quake, the game between the Crusaders and Hurricanes in Wellington has been cancelled. Each team will receive two points from the game, the equivalent of a draw. There are few potential blow outs this weekend, with the Brumbies taking on the less-than-promising Rebels, the Bulls playing the Cheetahs and potentially the Lions against the Stormers, although the Lions may back up from their positive showing against the Bulls in round one.
For a list of fixtures and times, as well as team announcements, check out the Super Rugby Round 2 Team Announcements and Fixtures post.
