The big story of Round 5 was the Reds' encounter with the Bulls.
There is no other way to put it—they were pulverised by any definition.
In other news, the Rebels got their first win after coming close for a while, the Hurricanes finished strongly in Auckland, as they came out 26-25 winners against the Blues, and the Crusaders broke in their new stadium with a fairly rusty win over the travelling Cheetahs.
I went three-for-four with my picks, bringing my total record to 14-20. What can we expect in Round 6?
