In my second column for Cape Town-based rugby site Rugby365, I explain how things suddenly look rather different in the Australian conference…

With ten rounds of the 2016 Super Rugby season done, things have suddenly got a whole lot more interesting in the Australian conference.

I finished off last month’s column saying that anything can and will happen in Super Rugby, and that’s certainly been the case in the within our conference. Form has been fleeting, consistency hasn’t existed unless you include ‘inconsistency’, and where I suggested that the Brumbies probably loomed as the major – and possibly ‘only’ – source of Australian playoff hopes, well, even that claim now looks rather shaky.
