Auckland Blues Win 2018 Brisbane Tens

Updated: Feb 21, 2018

The Auckland Blues have taken out the 2nd Brisbane Global Tens Tournament, defeating the Hurricanes in the Final 10 - 7




The Brisbane Global Tens underwent a few format changes for the 2nd edition in 2018. All 5 New Zealand Super Rugby teams are back, as are Panasonic Wild Knights from Japan. Fiji replace Samoa and Pau replace Toulon. Unfortunately, Western Force were unable to take part due to their axing from Super Rugby, but the remaining Australian teams (ACT Brumbies, Melbourne Rebels, QLD Reds, NSW Waratahs) took part.


A welcome addition was the inclusion of a full round-robin tournament for Women, featuring the 4 Australian Super Rugby Franchises.
