Pressure Gauge


How this team performs against the Chiefs and the Highlander­s will provide a good measure of exactly where they are at. They have some potential, but 2021 shapes up as a year of developmen­t for the Hurricanes and it would not be a surprise to see them struggle.

If they can avoid finishing at the foot of the ladder in Super Rugby Aotearoa, that will be a solid result in the grand scheme of things.

The pressurisi­ng factor for the coaching staff is how are they going to get the best out of this team, and that will be interestin­g to watch unfold.
