Unbeaten Canes can improve

Date published: March 30 2015

The Hurricanes are currently sitting pretty at the top of the Super Rugby table but John Plumtree believes there is more to come.

With six wins from as many games, the Canes are the only unbeaten team left in the competition, and are currently three points clear of the Chiefs despite playing a game fewer.

They continued their perfect start with a 36-12 win over the Rebels this weekend, despite resting the likes of Beuaden Barrett and Julian Savea, and this week they face a Stormers side looking to bounce back from a heavy defeat to the Highlanders.

But while everything is going smoothly at the moment, assistant coach Plumtree believes there is still room for improvement.

"The boys are enjoying themselves because winning is way better than losing," he told Stuff.co.nz.

"But every week there's something to fix and every week's not perfect and we are looking to improve the whole time.

"They'll (Stormers) be hurting after what happened last week," Plumtree added. "So we'll be expecting them to respond pretty positively in terms of intensity.

"We'll have to really step up in the pack. We've got a lot of respect for the Stormers. They've been a top side for a long period of time."
