40 The Hurricanes attack from a scrum deep inside the Reds' 22 but make little headway when Barrett and Bateman collide in midfield. The referee rules that they committed obstruction in the process and after a shrill blow on his whistle brings proceedings to a close. As the scoreline suggests, this has been an even contest.
