The Hurricanes, Crusaders and Highlanders continued on their merry way, the Lions slipped up in Brisbane and the Jaguares made it three on the trot.

These are your week 11 Super Rugby Power Rankings.

1. Hurricanes

The Canes remain on top after a hot and cold display against the Sunwolves. Nehe Milner Skudder returning unscathed was the major highlight of this match.

2. Highlanders

Lima Sopoaga ensured the Highlanders held their ground in this week’s Power Rankings. A last-minute penalty allowed the clutch play-maker to grab the win for his side at Fortress Loftus.

3. Crusaders

The Crusaders once again got the win in another unsteady performance. Two yellow cards made it difficult but they showed real grit on defence to get the job done.

4. Chiefs

The Chiefs jump a spot without stepping foot on a Rugby pitch. They return to action against the Jaguares, at home on Friday night.

5. Lions

They drop down a spot after a sloppy display in Brisbane. A quick start by the Reds was eventually too much for the Lions and their topsy turvey season continues under coach Swys de Bruin.

6. Waratahs

The Tahs stay at 6th spot after their bye week.

7. Bulls

The Bulls retain their spot in 7th despite their loss to the Highlanders. They are on the verge of doing something special in this competition and could be dark horses throughout the playoffs.

8. Jaguares

A three-match winning streak has revitalised the Jaguares season. They are well back in the playoff hunt and they will be hungry for more success against the Chiefs.

9. Sharks

The Sharks bye keeps them in the middle of the pack.

10. Rebels

The Rebels slow dive has continued and they slip down to 10th spot after their away loss to the Stormers.

11. Stormers

The Stormers kept their perfect home record intact after dismantling the Rebels. If only they learned how to win away from home.

12. Reds

This young Reds side continue to prosper under Brad Thorn. They are showing a strong ability to compete in all facets of the game. Their big win over the Lions will boost the confidence of this side moving forward.

13. Brumbies

A lack of skill and finishing prowess prevented the Brumbies from causing an upset against the defending champions. They slump to an uncharacteristic 13th spot.

14. Blues

Another brittle Blues performance has this side at rock bottom and they remain locked in 14th place.

15. Sunwolves

Yet another defeat for the Japanese side. Their credibility in this competition remains questionable.

I am a sports mad fanatic who loves watching drama filled code. Growing up in Wellington I have been fortunate enough to witness some great sporting moments at the Cake Tin – non more satisfying than seeing my beloved Hurricanes finally lift that trophy after 21 years of hurt.
