Highlanders vs Reds (40-19) (Points: 21-7)
Super Rugby Week begins with the victory of the Highlanders, who finished fourth in Super Rugby Aotearoa, over the Reds, the team that won the Australian version of the tournament.
Things got worse for the Reds from the first minute due to a mistake at the start that led to the New Zealanders scoring 34 seconds from the start. The Reds scored an attempt at the right time, but the Highlanders are advancing strongly after the first stage of play (7-21).
At the end of the match, the match rages up and 3 attempts are scored in quick succession, but this time also the Highlanders are the ones with more consistency.

Unfortunately for the Australians also in this case, the New Zealanders were better, scoring 10 out of the total.
