    Boyd slams 'sloppy' performance

    Canberra - Hurricanes coach Chris Boyd has bemoaned his side's 'sloppy' performance despite running out 35-16 victors over the Brumbies in a Super Rugby quarter-final in Canberra on Friday.

    The Hurricanes will play either the Lions or Sharks in the semi-finals, with the two South African franchises to clash in Johannesburg later on Saturday. 

    And Boyd has echoed captain TJ Perenara's sentiments that the Wellington outfit were below-par.

    "TJ (Perenara) just said it was a sloppy performance for us and it was," Boyd told the Canberra Times. 

    "We were really disappointed at half-time. 

    "I think it's our poorest performance in the last three games we've played and we can't walk away happy. 

    "At times we were terrible and we won ugly but we can't keep doing that." 

    Meanwhile, All Black hooker Dane Coles has reflected on his return to action following four months on the sidelines battling concussion symptoms and numerous other injuries. 

    "My lungs were hissing a bit, but I was just trying to go at it and have a bit of fun and enjoy it," Coles said. 

    "It's been a long time watching footy, awesome to be back and out on the field for the boys. 

    "Really sore today, it's a good sign that I got through a bit of work."
