Weekend rugby wrap

A beautiful long holiday Victoria Day weekend meant getting out of the house and expending as little energy updating rugby posts as the lovely wife would allow! O-kay, we're a few days late, here's some catch-up from the past weekend:

The Bulls are Super 14 champions after defeating the Sharks with an injury-time try to Bryan Habana, winning 20-19. It really was one of the most remarkable Super finals ever played. Full Rugby Planet report here.

Rugby Planet also names their Super 14 Brickbats & Bouquets and Team of the Tournament.

The final can still be seen in all it's glory at Mediazone Rugby Channel.

In Euro action, the Heineken Cup was settled with London Wasps dispatching Leicester Tigers 25-9 in front of a packed house at Twickenham.

And the European Challenge Cup Final saw Clermont Auvergne shave Bath 22-16.

Supposedly there was some Churchill Cup action as well, and in a game no Canadian rugby fans saw, Canada went down 39-20 to Ireland 'A'. It might have been a good performaqnce by Canada, but not having seen the game, I'll never know. Canada face NZ Maori next up...
