    The Highlanders have been exposed in a shock 28-22 Super Rugby loss to the Rebels in Dunedin

    The Highlanders have been exposed in a shock 28-22 Super Rugby loss to the Rebels in Dunedin


    After trailing 21-0 halfway through the opening period, the Highlanders threatened to stage a stunning comeback before ultimately crumbling under the presser.

    The hosts' job made even tougher with two yellow cards in the second half.

    Aaron Smith says it's not good enough.



    Meanwhile, major questions surround the state of captain James Lentjes, who was stretchered off the field in the 29th minute with a serious leg injury.
