as informed in Hinton’s hot topics: What to watch out for in Super Rugby over this weekendBRENDON RATNAYAKE/PHOTOSPORT Rieko Ioane was on fire for the Blues in week one of Super Rugby.
The young man clearly is something special, and at 19 has already tucked a Super Rugby campaign, a sevens Olympic experience and an All Black tour under his belt.
It’s week two of Super Rugby, and let’s not forget that last season’s champions, the Hurricanes, opened 0-2, before winning 14 of their next 16 matches to lift their inaugural title.
Augustine Pulu was not far behind Ioane last week as the Blues’ best player in their rout of the Rebels in Melbourne.
Not to labour a point, but the Highlanders’ out-of-sorts All Blacks halfback was pretty scratchy against the Chiefs.
