The Hurricanes’ thumping win over the Highlanders might have come at a massive cost.

Cam Roigard, the outstanding All Blacks halfback, left the field on a stretcher halfway through the second half in obvious pain.

The game was halted for several minutes as Roigard was treated, and even with TJ Perenara in their squad, his loss would be a big blow to the Hurricanes’ title aspirations.

And, before Roigard’s injury, those aspirations were looking increasingly realistic.

The Hurricanes were a joy to watch under the roof, a mixture of skill, pace, athleticism and set-piece pressure as they repeatedly dismantled the Highlanders’ defence.

In Brett Cameron, they also have a No.10 who is hard-wired not to overplay his hand, an attribute that is allowing his outsides and rampant loose forwards to unleash their potential.
