Hurricanes, Crusaders, Waratahs and Lions have progressed to the semi-finals of the ongoing Super Rugby season. Here is a round-up of all the action from the previous weekend.
For leading Waratahs to a 30-23 win over Highlanders, Australia international Bernard Foley has been named the SANZAAR Player of the Week. Foley had a terrific second half in which he scored two converted tries along with three penalties in the game to steer his team to a tense win. He contributed 25 points out of Waratahs' 30 and had 100% goal kicking along with eight carries and 10 tackles.
