    Cape Town - The Hurricanes underlined their title credentials with a dominant victory over the vastly-improved Rebels in their cross-Tasman Super Rugby clash in Melbourne on Friday.

    As it happened: Rebels v Hurricanes

    The Hurricanes won 50-19 after leading 25-19 at half-time.

    The Hurricanes scored seven tries through wing Ben Lam (4), flyhalf Beauden Barrett, No 8 Gareth Evans and centre Ngani Laumape. Barrett added three conversions and three penalties for a personal haul of 20 points.

    The Rebels replied with a single try by lock Matt Philip, while flyhalf Jack Debreczeni landed the conversion as well as four penalties.

    The Hurricanes picked up a full-house of five points for their victory and moved to the top of the New Zealand Conference and into second place in the Overall standings.

    The Rebels, who led 19-8 in the 30th minute, left empty-handed, but stayed top of both the Australian Conference and Overall log.

    In next weekend's Round 8 action, the Hurricanes welcome the Sharks to Napier (Friday, April 6 at 09:35), while the Rebels have a bye.
