With ACT Brumbies toppling the Sharks in Durban, inflicting the the South African side's first loss, the Blues have returned to the top of the Super 14 rugby table

After eight rounds the Sharks drop to second place while the Crusaders are back in the top four, in third, after their demolition of the Stormers 36-11 win in Christchurch.

The Bulls are fourth following their away win over the Highlanders, 22-13 at Carisbrook.

Last year's beaten finalist, the Hurricanes, have dropped to 11th after their 5th loss of the season.
